PBL Assessment

Jessica Mann 7th grade Student Teacher from Canada


I am a student teacher doing a personal inquiry project on Project Based Learning. I would like to know more about authentic assessment tools used throughout the project process.

What are the most effective assessment tools that aid student with deeper understanding, increased motivation and higher levels of success with their final product?

Also I will be doing a 5 week practicum in the spring including a unit on Ecosystems and the Human impact on Ecosystems. I think this would be a great time to give my students a project and put my learning and theirs to a test. Any suggestions or recommendations for great projects?
