Self-assessment operates in many different curriculum areas or subjects. The products, outputs or performances assessed can vary - writing, portfolios, oral and/or audio-visual presentations, test performances, other skilled behaviours, or combinations of these. Where skilled behaviours in professional practice are self-assessed, this might occur via retrospective recollection or by post hoc analysis of video recordings. The self-assessment can be summative (judging a final product or performance to be correct/incorrect or pass/fail, or assigning some quantitative mark or grade) and/or (more usually) formative (involving detailed qualitative assessment of better and worse aspects, with implications for making specific onward improvements).

Social processes might influence and contaminate the reliability and validity of peer assessments (Byard, 1989; Falchikov, 1995; Pond, Ul-Haq, & Wade, 1995). Falchikov (2001) explores questions of role ambiguity, dissonance and conflict in relation to authority and status issues and attribution theory.
