The curriculum under the concept of evaluation implies monitoring, testing and evaluating pupils' achievements. The adoption of the curriculum content prescribed by the curriculum and the evaluation criteria is evaluated. Pupils' motivation greatly affects the quality and extent of the accepted knowledge. The final numerical grade is formed after a number of different knowledge-testing methods (oral and written examination, portfolio, project) conducted by the examiner at a different time period (summative and formative examination). Since a number of mistakes may occur during evaluation, it is essential for each teacher to observe a series of subjective and objective factors in the evaluation process and give the pupil a valid mark. The paper thematizes self-evaluation as a process in which students actively participate and parallel evaluation and active learning as an alternative to the traditional frontal teaching mode and the established oral and written test methods. In the empirical part of the paper, emphasis is placed on the halo effect - a potential mistake in evaluating when a teacher's grade is based on his previously-formed general attitude to the pupil or is based on the judgment of other teachers. The research was conducted on teachers of the Croatian language with a working life of less than 5 years who were evaluating essays of the 6th grade pupils. The starting point was the hypothesis that young teachers are inclined to agree with the opinion of colleagues who previously assessed the pupils' essays (H1) and that there would be statistically significant deviation in the ratings of the control group relative to the test group (H2). By analyzing the results of the research both hypotheses were rejected.
