Student self-assessment involves students evaluating their own work and learning process. It is a valuable tool, which allows students to identify their own skill gaps, set realistic and attainable goals, revise work, track their learning and understanding, and decide when to move to summative assessment. This process can help students stay engaged in their learning while taking responsibility for that learning.
