Student Self-Assessment

“Self-Regulated Learning is a type of learning that requires students to think about their thinking, monitor their progress toward the learning goal, and ultimately assess their overall performance” (Creekmore & Deaton 2021).

Student self-assessment provides opportunities for students to develop metacognitive skills, revise their own work or prior schema, and make plans for how to complete complex tasks.

Self-assessment is assessment.  Thus data can also be gathered, during student self-assessment, by an instructor to plan supports and future lessons, formatively assess student progress and understanding, and to diagnose misconceptions and breakdowns in understanding.
