Assessing Student Learning
Assessing Student Learning
One of the primary hurdles to implementing project-based learning is assessing. Inherent in project-based learning and in performance based assignments is what and how should is the learning assessed. One the best methods for assessing such learning is a rubric. When provided to students as of the initial assignment, the rubric assists the student with assignment completion, organizing tasks, monitoring progress, and evaluating quality of work. It is possible that a project may require more than one rubric: 1) to assess use of technology and media and 2) to assess how well the product indicates the learning.
