Self-assessment and self-remediation is the title of a post of Dave Cormier in his blog – http://davecormier.com/edblog/2013/08/04/self-assessment-and-self-remediation/
It’s a reflection on how to help learners fill their lieracy and knowledge gaps and cites another work of the 80’s that presents some good ideas «Independent Learning in HE» that includes a chapter by Janet Gale on self-assessment and self-remediation.
Assessment issues are sensitive since traditional summative testing seems to prevail in the education system.

«MOOC MOOC took the approach of a wildly open pedagogy, asking participants to provide their own content to a great extent, and offering only a skeletal structure for discussion and collaboration.»

A SCOOP.IT was produced under MOOC MOOC to gather a sample of the participants’ contributions – http://www.scoop.it/t/moocmooc
