This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between students self assessment in Mathematics and academic performance in Senior Secondary School Physics. The research is descriptive and of the survey type as there was no treatment and manipulation of subjects. Instead it involves the use of questionnaire and students records of performance in Physics. A total of 600 students were selected by stratified random sampling from 10 schools in five Local Government Areas of Ondo State. Pearson Product moment Correlation coefficient was used to test the hypotheses 1 and 2. Findings of the Study showed that self –assessment in Mathematics is significantly related to SS 2 Physics.
