Self Assessments

Mobile Supported

Self assessments allow you to create non-assessable quizzes with automated feedback which students can access in order to reinforce their learning.


Why use the Self Assessment tool?

Self assessments allow you to create non-assessable quizzes with automated feedback which students can access in order to reinforce their learning.

Opportunities

  • create quizzes which allow students to 'test' what they are learning
  • assist students to reinforce their learning by interspersing self assessments into your Resources
  • build in automatic feedback with your quiz questions and answers
  • provide opportunities for students to determine what aspects of their learning they need to revise
  • give students experience of doing informal online quizzes before tackling formal assessments
  • provide opportunities for students to practice for multiple-choice exams.

Tip

  • Create your Self Assessment questions in the Question Library so you can reuse the questions if required.
  • Adult learners value the opportunity to check how well they are understanding concepts.

Example

Self Assessment tool

Access Self Assessments tool

  1. Click on Setup from the navigation bar.

Create Self Assessments

Note: Steps to create self assessments are very similar to create quizzes.

  1. Refer to Question Library to create all self assessment questions. Using this method enables you to reuse questions in quizzes, surveys as well as self assessments. All points values are removed when importing questions from the Question Library to self assessments. Since self assessments are not graded and have no points value, ensure that you use feedback comments to provide feedback for each answer choice within the question.
  2. Refer to Quizzes to create self assessments.
