Assessing Student Project Work

Assessing Student Project Work | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Project work challenges students to think beyond the boundaries of the classroom, helping them develop the skills, behaviors, and confidence necessary for success in the 21st-century. Designing learning environments that help students question, analyze, evaluate, and extrapolate their plans, conclusions, and ideas, leading them to higher–order thinking, requires feedback and evaluation that goes beyond a letter or number grade. The term “authentic assessment” is used to describe assessment that evaluates content knowledge as well as additional skills like creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and innovation.

Authentic assessment documents the learning that occurs during the project-building process and considers the real-world skills of collaboration, problem solving, decision making, and communication. Since project work requires students to apply knowledge and skills throughout the project-building process, you will have many opportunities to assess work quality, understanding, and participation from the moment students begin working.

Rubrics, when well thought-out and well-used, are great tools. The key is to sit with your curricula each time you assign a project and review the outcomes. Second, take time and discuss the rubric with students. What is expected? What do they understand and not? How can they use the rubric to guide their learning? Third, take time to talk and listen as they use the rubrics. A rubric is a conversation.

Projects are widely used with EFL/ESL students because they can incorporate various levels and skills.  Assessing them can be tricky, but it doesn't have to.  There are various parts of assessment, including a link to making your own rubrics, in this article.
