From Edutopia: How can we provide better PBL resources?

Betty Ray Director of Programming and Innovation @Edutopia

Hi All --

As you may or may not know, we produce a regular series called Schools that Work, which is an in-depth look at how some schools are successfully implementing various 21st century practices.

As we plan our coverage, we'd love to hear from you: What aspect of PBL are you most interested in and/or most needing in help or resources?

Have you implemented PBL before? If so, what parts work well and what hasn't?

If you've not implemented PBL, why not?

We appreciate your candid responses here as it will help guide our editorial coverage. Thanks so much --

PBL & Mastery Based Grading

Was this helpful?

We are a "wall-to-wall" PBL based charter school in Michigan, and we are just starting up. One of our other focuses is Mastery based grading (Think Marzano!). If you could offer more tips on different types of assessment with PBL and how this can be interpreted on different types of scales (Traditional letter based as well as Mastery/Competency Based), we would all be very appreciative. Thanks!

Hi Kristen - Thank you for the suggestion. In our coverage of High Tech High, there is an article about PBL assessment that you might find helpful: However, assessment is a critical aspect of PBL and there are many ways to approach it, so we'll be sure to keep that in mind as we cover more schools doing PBL and try to provide more tips.
