Research has indicated that co-creative educational processes in entrepreneurship education (EE) foster the development of both entrepreneurial skills and skills needed in the studies as well as a broadened perspective among the students in general. We state that to succeed with this the self-reflectiveness is a necessary component. The purpose of this paper is therefore to consider EE and self-reflectiveness from the student perspective. We look at self-reflectiveness in action. More specifically we study how self-assessment through a reflective task using video clips can trigger and activate entrepreneurial thinking and learning about entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship among BA students in Denmark and Finland. The preliminary findings show that video-clips seem to be a successful way to reveal and trigger reflectiveness among the students. Furthermore, the reflections seem to trigger deeper insights as well as learning and reflection upon and about the entrepreneurial mindset and skills related to the entrepreneurship in a somewhat transformational way. The findings are beneficial for developing EE and for gaining insight into how the students think about entrepreneurship, related skills and becoming entrepreneurs. The video-clip as an examination seems also to be beneficial when both learning about and assessing entrepreneurial thinking
