DIAZ CABEZAS, Idania et al. Autoevaluation and co-evaluation in English practical classes in middle-high education. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.3, pp. 221-232. ISSN 1561-3194.
The premise of the need to consider the educational and productive interests in educating the students' personality for themselves and society on the basis of the ideal of universal and concrete man, who gives Martí's conception of a complete man, made it possible to demonstrate through the present paper the importance of the application of auto-evaluation and co-evaluation techniques in English practical classes in middle-high education. This scientific and research activity was centered on two of the techniques of the most controversial pedagogical category - the evaluation, making special emphasis on the dialectic of the evaluation-autoevaluation and evaluation-coevaluation relationships. The evaluation of future health technicians and professionals, which has been carried out at our higher educational institutions, has had theoretical and methodological difficulties, which influence the optimal quality of the formation of graduates. All the above, along with the novel transformations and the faculty's instability, has caused professors of the future health professional to not yet count on all the concise theoretical methodological answers in terms of the evaluation of the development accomplished by these professors. In this paper, fundamental evaluative trends were identified, and conditions were approached to take into account other forms and styles within the evaluating model that has existed in English practical classes, facilitating the development towards the cognitive, the affective, the valorative and behavioral, increasing the students' learning, motivation and creativity.
