Abstract: The project focus was on the implementation of self-assessment in undergraduate chemistry labs to improve student comprehension of practical laboratory skills. During 2nd year undergraduate practical organic lab sessions, students were asked to engage in critical self-assessment and reflection of their practical activities. Currently, assessment of practical laboratory skills does not always align with the quality of a student's practical work. Self-assessment can aid in promoting student confidence and engagement by allowing them to evaluate their own practical skills. The project investigated the level of student comprehension of practical laboratory skills through the use of self-assessment, focusing on evaluating practical skills rather than experimental outcomes. The study also explored the impact of gender and socioeconomic indicators on student self-assessment. A sample of 123 students was involved in the study.
