Abstract:

The capacity for self-assessment amongst undergraduate psychology students (N = 64) was investigated in comparison to tutor assessments. Students were able to assess their own performance reasonably and accurately. However, higher achieving students underestimated their performance, while the opposite was found for lower achieving students. These results reflect the characteristics of self-enhancement and self-diminishment bias.
