Self-assessment is a well-established practice in parts of the Higher Education sector. Research literature suggests that it has the potential to enable learners to better understand and assimilate assessment criteria, become more reflective practitioners, and engage more directly with assessment and feedback processes. During the first semester of 2010/11, the third year Special Subject module HS3735 The Russian Revolution, 1881-1924 added a self-assessment component to its assessed coursework. The aim of doing so was to: a) provide an opportunity for students to engage in reflective learning; and b) more generally, explore further the use and value of self-assessment from the point of view of students.
