This study focuses on the process of implementing self-, peer- and teacher-assessment in teacher education in order to examine the ways of applying these assessment practices and specifically aims at finding out the level of agreement among pre-service teachers’ self-, peer- and teacher-assessments of presentation performances. Pre-service teachers’ presentation performances including an application of a teaching method assessed by peers and teacher and also by themselves through criteria based assessment forms. The analysis of the data revealed that there are statistically significant differences among self-, peer- and teacher-assessment scores. Peer-assessment of pre-service teachers’ presentations is found to be significantly higher compared with teacher-assessment and self-assessment. With regard to the comparison of teacher-assessment scores and self-assessment scores, it is revealed that there are no significant differences between teacher- and self-assessments. In teacher training programmes beside summative approach self-, peer- and teacher-assessments can be implemented in a formative way as useful practices in developing more succesful performance, higher confidence, effective presenting skills and essential competencies required for effective teaching.
