Sophia Vitilio's curator insight, February 16, 2014 10:04 PM

I can easily say that although I am currently enrolled in an assessment class, I never thought of the challenges in assessment with project based learning.  Since our world is becoming more technology based as time goes on, I really thing that teaching and assessing 21st century skills are very important.  If we want our students to be globally competent, they will need these skills, and will need to keep up with them to be successful in a global world.  I think it is always important for goals to be set.  This being said, I think it would be effective for students to set goals as they work on their PBL work so they can revise appropriately so their final product is up to par.  I also believe that it is beyond important for whatever a student is doing to be meaningful to them.  Personally, I put more effort and have more passion for what I am working on when I have an interest for it so I would want my students to do work that is meaningful to them.  A personal drive will allow for a thriving classroom.  One other part of PBL I see as challenging is how to use this type of learning while still having to prepare students for standardized tests.
