Tait-McCutcheon, Sandi; Knewstubb, Bernadette – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2018
The ability to reflect and self-assess are essential attributes for graduates to develop during their education. At many tertiary institutions, peer and lecturer-assessment contribute to summative assessment, but self-assessment, whilst recommended for development, does not. In order to make a case for the inclusion of self-assessment as a…

Adachi, Chie; Tai, Joanna Hong-Meng; Dawson, Phillip – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2018
Despite compelling evidence of its potential effectiveness, uptake of self and peer assessment in higher education has been slower than expected. As with other assessment practices, self and peer assessment is ultimately enabled, or inhibited, by the actions of individual academics. This paper explores what academics see as the benefits and…
