Critical Assessment Ideas from PBL World - Edutopia

Critical Assessment Ideas from PBL World - Edutopia | PBL Classrooms | Scoop.it

"I had a great time at the PBL World Conference in so many ways: as a presenter, as a panelist, as a listener, as a collaborator, and even as the subject of art. (Now, that is something I would never, ever have guessed!) Everyone took away his or her own ideas for implementing PBL projects, but one theme I noticed throughout the entire conference was assessment. Assessment remains a challenge for many of us who do PBL, but I left the conference feeling more confident not only in the assessment practices I have done, but also in generally accepted best practices. Here are some of my big takeaways:"

What is the Most Important Element of a PBL Unit?

What is the Most Important Element of a PBL Unit? | PBL Classrooms | Scoop.it

What is the most important element in PBL unit? There are8 elements to choose from:

* Significant Content

* A Need to Know

* A Driving Question

* Student Voice and Choice

* 21st Century Skills

* Inquiry and Innovation

* Feedback and Revision

* Publicly Presented Product

This post states that a driving question is most important. "If you find the right questions then most of the other factors identified are covered automatically."

The question then becomes "How do you generate a great question and who is the right person to generate that question?" To this the answer would be the students.

If this is an area where you are not sure how to work with students then look into the the work of the Right Question Institute (RQI) and their Question Formation Technique (QFT). To help you better understand this they provide a look at "how question generation was embedded at the heart of a PBL unit."

PBL's begin with a driving question, one that is relevant to the learner and fosters engagement. Feedback is ongoing and essential for learner to happen.
