How do you not know if you're a good worker or not? Most people don't need validation from others to determine the quality of their work.
Some workplaces/positions/tasks have particular requirements, and if someone's not sufficiently trained in those they can subjectively do a good job and still not measure up. For instance, someone could always file a required weekly report with nary a complaint and reasonably feel good about what they're doing -- but if they were never told that, for instance, those reports were supposed to include an additional set of data, be in a particular format, or be filed by 10am every Monday rather than by the end of the day, they're unlikely to be meeting the company's standards.
This is something you can easily fix. I mean, on your end you couldn't have known if you were meeting expectations/quotas. I'm sure if you explain yourself and tell them that you're willing to stay and fix this, things will be fine. I've had people tell me the same thing with previous jobs I've had. Most were understanding. I hope your's is as well.
Where the expectations of your work never made clear? Usually they would explain goals/ targets to employees. Also, did you compare your work to that of your coworkers? Even with a lazy supervisor there should have been some indication
