Using the Rubric

Target one or two elements to identify your goal for improvement (You may want to focus on elements
where you are Beginning or Developing)

Keep records of your growth in Self-Regulated Learning in your Prof 190/191 professional portfolio. Use the
materials as evidence of Becoming a Professional Learner during your exit conference.

If you get stuck in your efforts to become a more self-regulated learner, seek out someone you feel has
expertise to support your learning and work with them (see elements 4 & 8).

Completing the self-assessment was such a valuable experience for me. I have been really taking my time
working through the course material but as I complete the various readings I am feeling more confident
as I try to implement the various strategies. Now, having the professional rubric, which provides a clear
visual of the areas I need to improve, will be a great learning opportunity for me.

The Elements for Professional Self-Regulated Learning which were my strengths were Initiative,
Collaboration, Consideration and Use of Resource and the areas which I am in great need of development
were Time Management, Use of Professional Expertise, Problem-Solving and Monitoring Performance.
Before completing the assessment, I would have never expected Monitoring Performance to be an area of
challenge, I consider myself to be a very reflective person but I realize as of late I am so focus on task
completion I have not really been assessing the quality and determining of the overall objective and
learning outcome has been attained. Additionally, because I am very keen on using resources to improve
my knowledge it was very interesting to realize my low reference and usage of professional experts.

I look forward to devising a action plan to improve.
