Surveys | How to create a Self-Assessment
Self-assessments are a type of assessment that will allow students to independently assess their knowledge as they navigate through the course. While similar to quizzes, self-assessments are purely designed for students to evaluate their progress while quizzes are more focused on teachers using them as a grading opportunity.
This article will explain how to:

You can create a category to better classify your self-assessments by entering a name and clicking on Save.
