The independent Professional Project is an exploratory action-research, the main purpose of which was to verify the impact of self-assessment and feedback on students learning; that is, to substantiate how useful these tools are for students and if their really influences students learning and academic progress. Various instruments were designed and applied throughout the research process to a group of Dominican students taking the Level I English course at PONTIFICIA UNIVERSIDAD CATOLICA MADRE Y MAESTRA in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Theoretical implications are also presented here as well as limitations found while conducting the research. Finally, I offer some useful suggestions to be considered in future research.
