Self-assessment is used to measure knowledge and skills in a particular field. It is often used prior to entering a particular university program or before taking a standardised exam. Self-assessment identifies areas on which to focus during exam review and preparation.


Self-assessment may be provided by staff or faculty at an education institution. It is often seen in the form of multiple-choice questions, true or false questions or as a checklist. It is used to evaluate the student's knowledge and engage the student in the learning process.


Self-assessment questions in accounting test the student's knowledge and understanding of the accounting processes, accounting concepts, journal entries and financial statements. Examples of self-assessment would include defining general ledger accounts, applying accounting methods or principles and performing accounting calculations.


Self-assessment is a tool that allows the learner to anticipate the structure and content of the exam and helps her prepare accordingly.
