Self-assessment and peer assessment
Self-assessment is increasingly being used as an assessment tool in tertiary education. This type of assessment enables students to evaluate progress with their learning. If you are to use self-assessment, then it would probably work best if you give students clear objectives (or competencies) together with explicit criteria against which to judge their performance. You may even want to involve students in of these areas (i.e. setting objectives, identifying competencies, developing criteria for judging performance).
Through self assessment people are interested in the accuracy of current self view.The students are capable of assessing their own work.it is very usful for developing their lifeskill and knowledge.
Peer assessment involves students evaluating the work of their peers, e.g. in a group work situation. As in self-assessment, clear objectives and explicit criteria should be agreed upon beforehand. Students individually assess each other's contribution using a rubrics list of criteria. peer assessment is usually introduced infront of students before self assessment as this helps them to develop ability to give critisis for the classmates,before applying it into their own work.
