This article reports on an examination of how primary education pre-service teachers self-assess their literacy, more specifically their writing skills and how they learn them. The data consist of material from a qualitative survey (N = 76) responded to by the participants in their first academic term. The data were analysed using qualitative and theory informed content analysis. The findings show that pre-service teachers approach their writing skills from three perspectives which are stance-, skill- and development-specific. Analysis of self-assessment indicates that the participants perceive themselves as a writer quite holistically, and their reflections represent genre and process discourses, although less social practices and socio-political discourses. However, there are individual differences between participants in approaching and perceiving writing, as well as in depth of reflection. Based on our findings, the pre-service teachers’ understanding of writing and their reflection skills should be promoted more systematically during their studies.
