Student self-assessment is a valuable skill which can enhance effective learning and facilitate continuing professional development. This article reports on a qualitative exploration of self--assessment, which formed part of a larger action research project into a pre-registration midwifery programme. Analysis of the data identified four key themes: understanding, preparation, value and ability. Underpinning these themes was the students' desire for greater clarity of understanding of the self-assessment process, together with a desire for more preparation for the process through the provision of a supportive tutorial framework. This should include opportunities to discuss, develop and practice assessment criteria and receive relevant feedback on self-evaluations. The findings provide a rationale for recommending the development of a structured approach and idsentified pathway following the progress of self-assessment skills in all units, aimed at facilitating a more comprehensive engagement with the self-assessment process by both students and tutors and enhancing understanding of its value to future learning.
