Our Self-Assessment of Skills tool can be used to let student self-assess individual skills or team skills. It follows a similar structure as our Group Member Evaluation tool, but contains only a self-assessment step.

This article will go explain how to set up our Self-Assessment of Skills tool, this tool is meant

Setting up Self-Assessment of Skills

First fill in a Title, then continue to Step 1.

Step 1

Fill in instructions. Fill in your overall instructions for the assignment (see the screenshot below for an example). Note that if you leave this field blank, you will not be able to publish/save the assignment. You can add a voice note or an attachment to the instruction if needed.

The assignment can be an individual- or a group assignment. Click change to choose between one of the following two options:

  • Students work individually, review own skills

  • Students work as a group, review skills of group

If you would like the students to either work or review in groups, you will have to select from your LMS or configure the groups manually. Note that you can only configure groups when students have been added to the assignment.

Step 2

In this step, you specify criteria to help guide students as they give feedback. Click change to edit, add, or delete criteria. Click here for a detailed guide on setting criteria.

Deadline Set the deadline for giving feedback. Note that reviewers will not be able to view or edit their reviews after this deadline passes. Leave the deadline blank to allow reviewers to view and/or edit their feedback indefinitely.

New user interface design:
This is enabled by default and enabled our improved review interface for students. The same review interface is also our default interface in Group Member Evaluation. We recommend that you keep this setting enabled for a better user experience.

Step 3

Written reflection (optional). This reflection written reflection by the student who received feedback is visible only to themselves and the teacher.

Deadline. Students will not be able to write a reflection after the deadline passed. Note that students can still view the feedback and their reflection after the deadline. If you do not set a deadline, students can write and/or edit their reflection indefinitely.

Under Settings you can customize your instructions for the written reflection. See the screenshot below for the default instructions. You can also set a minimum required length of the written reflection.


Moreover, you can add grading to your assignment by clicking on the purple plus button on your left. You can configure how many points do you want to give to each process of the assignment like in the following screenshot.
