Abstract: eSelf-assessment is an online learning model to enhance students' ability to think and analyze their own writing and oral presentation, and to deepen their understanding of how to improve their work by using their class teachers' feedback on both their assignments and self-assessments in their own studying pace. It is an introduction of self-directed learning. Little's findings have shown the value of the development of learners' ability of self-assessment. It evolves to be a norm, named ePortfolio, during the past few years adopted by the English Language Centre, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University based on the teaching and learning strategy defined by the university. The purpose of this paper is to share the experience of an application on an English learning programme for engineering students at the university, which features eSelf-assessment on an open-source e-learning platform. This paper demonstrates the implementation of eSelf-assessment to show the flow of students' tasks, the first and second repetitive processes for students in different level of learning ability. A survey was conducted to collect students' satisfaction and effectiveness of independent online learning through this learning model by the end of the semester. The results show that the model is more effective to the segment of students who keep revising their work after the process of eSelf-assesment.
