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 of 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.
