About Self Assessments

Self Assessments is a formative assessment tool that enables you to provide students with a series of questions and immediate feedback for responses. Question types available are similar to quizzes, however, student responses are not graded and self assessment questions do not have a points value or difficulty level indication. The omission of numeric evaluation enables students to make reflective learning and course material comprehension their main priorities during a self assessment.

You can set up self assessments as part of your course's instructional sequence by creating quicklink topics to self assessments in Content. You can also set up quicklinks to self assessments from other places in the course such as in News or Events.

Each self assessment belongs to a single course and cannot be shared among other courses unless you copy your course material into another course. See Copying course components between org units to learn how to duplicate and share self assessments between course offerings.
