This paper introduces a new way of assessing entrepreneurial learning in entrepreneurship education
(EE) from the student perspective. We inductively study how self-assessment through a reflective task
using video-clips can trigger and instill entrepreneurial thinking and learning about entrepreneurship
among business and non-business students at higher education institutions (HEIs) in Finland and
Denmark, after participating in a course with entrepreneurship as a part of the course content. We show
that video-clip is a powerful self-assessment tool in EE as personal reflections trigger entrepreneurial
skills. Furthermore, we show that no matter the study context, students can assess their own
entrepreneurial learning.
