Student self-assessments are tools for teachers and students, as well as parents and communities. They build students’ ability to be critically aware of their learning success, as well as provide self-guidance for next steps and further activities.

In student self-assessments, learners can examine about state standards and use them to establish their own learning goals, creating rubrics and other measurements to assess their own performance. They can also use rubrics or simply probing questions in order to identify their successes and challenges, as well as plot their next steps.
