Student evaluation is one of the most important processes in the learning practice of schools, which constitutes a vital part of education. It is considered one of the most important issues which involves the teachers, the students and all the stakeholders who participate in the process of school performance. In this line, it requires the continuous attention and concern of all the engaged stakeholders, since it is a fundamental parameter of the learning process.

It should be noted that it is not only considered a subject per se but also as a means of organizing all other school subjects and improving students’ linguistic skills in general. Therefore, it constitutes the dominant teaching tool in an educational setting as well as the main communication method of society.

The present research aims to empower students to question the quality of their evaluation in the Greek language both in school and in society, so that they will manage to demand equality in evaluation, develop critical thinking and take initiatives to defend not only themselves but also all the people who are oppressed, by seeking to create a fairer society which prioritizes meritocracy.
