Reasons to use self assessments

  • Self Assessments is a formative assessment tool that enables you to provide learners with a series of questions and give immediate feedback to their responses.
  • The omission of numeric evaluation enables learners to make reflective learning and course material comprehension their main priorities during a self assessment.
  • You can use self assessments as a way of enabling learners to provide feedback on how well they think they are doing with course material.
