The role of self assessment in student grading
Pages 10

While the educational benefits of student self assessment are being increasingly recognised, the use of self assessment for grading purposes is a more controversial matter. Is there a role for student self assessment in formal assessment proceedings? If so, what should it be? This chapter focuses on these questions and examines why a marking role for self assessment should be considered. Strategies are proposed to improve student markers' reliability and to incorporate self assessment indirectly into the formal assessment process.
