Student Created Assessments

Hello everyone,

I have been toying with the idea of having students create their own assessments instead of in-class examinations.  Does anyone have experience with this?  If so, would you be willing to share how you explained to students the expectations?  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Lindsey
