Self assessment is seen as an important part of pupil assessment in schools. This paper describes how student teachers raised questions about the value, purposes and implementation of self assessment, and were helped to answer them by in-school studies and reference to literature. Five pupil activities are identified: reviewing samples of pupils' work; keeping records; documenting interests, choices and preferences; conferencing and involving pupils, teachers, and parents; and sharing personal responses.
