I think that being able to asses your own work is very important. We need to be able to understand by ourselves what is good and what is bad in out writing. When you are able to asses your own work you will be able to see what is wrong and what can go better. This can lead to better grades and more teachers will appreciate how hard you have been trying. If we want a good paying job in the future we need to understand what skills it will take to get the job. Sometimes we will need to be able to fix what we’ve done. Someone may become an architect and will need to look at their past work and understand what they can improve on in the future.
