Self Assessments

Self Assessments is a formative assessment tool that provides students with a series of questions and gives immediate feedback. Question types are similar to those available within Quizzes; however, Self Assessment attempts are not graded and questions do not have point values.

Self Assessments are truly a student tool, as Instructors are unable to view self-assessment attempts, therefore, there is not a way to track who has or has not taken a self-assessment.
