Hands-on Activities

     In addition to Internet-based activities, it is important to include related hands-on activities in a project whenever possible. The hands-on activities could serve as an opener for the topic of study or could help to reinforce learning at a later point in the project. 

Example

One possibility for assessing student learning is to present them with a similar, yet related, problem. For example, in the Global/Sun Temperature Project after students have learned that the amount of daylight they experience is related to latitude they can be asked to make general predictions about the amount of daylight they will experience at different latitudes. Alternatively, students can be assessed by examining the material that they are asked to produce during the course of the project.
Questions

Consider these questions as you review your project.

  • How will you determine if your students have met the standards and/or proficiency benchmarks?

  • How exactly will you assess your students' learning, participation and performance for the project you have selected? 

  • What specific parts of the project will you assess? Examples may include data analysis, project assignments, learned knowledge, learned skills, group work, and final product. 

  • What methods will you use to assess student performance? Examples may include journals, rubrics and tests.
