Name ___________________________ Course _________ Grade ______


SEA = Self-evaluation assessment: 1 = idling and 10 = accelerating; give yourself a number for each of these 10 criteria (aligned with the 7 core abilities) for your personal evaluation; this survey will be handed in, and I will also evaluate you for each one as well so we can compare our results. This SEA = self-evaluation assessment will be given during classes 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15 or 3 and 6 in accelerated classes. If your self-evaluation progressively improves this should be an indication of progress, success, and satisfaction with your learning process and the degree that you value this course.
