Abstract

Reflection has benefits for teachers, as well as the ability to systematically and deliberately use reflection as a learning tool in professional practice. This requires conscientious development over time in pre-service and post-service courses. Limited research has been conducted into how to address the issue of how to assess reflection when the task is of a subjective and personal nature. A model has been put together to identify and categorise the level of reflection student teachers are engaged in.
