Teachers develop their professional practice throughout their entire career, so self-assessment should be built into professional growth.

Results of the self-reflection appears in bar graph summary format, which ultimately leads to a self-assessment of one’s learning needs. An online User Guide with frequently asked questions is available to support users and to answer commonly asked questions.
