I was playing around today with the idea of evaluation for the Passion Project. I am not the biggest fan of rubrics, but I am interested in providing meaningful indicators of success for my students. To that end, I want to share two items I am thinking of using as evaluative tools:
I was greatly inspired by the work coming out of my former place of work, NIST (New International School of Thailand, in Bangkok). There is a blog for Exhibition teachers and through that, I came across a simple post: How Do We Assess the Exhibition? I really liked the style of the rubric and have used this as a platform for tailoring one to our Passion Project. It is still a work in progress – I have a couple more weeks before the big kick-off – but I want to put it out there in the hope of making it better. Click on image for larger view.

We had the students reflect in a variety of ways last year. While I like this, I also like giving them some kind of structure to guide their reflection, should they need it. To that end, I created a student reflection sheet based on the Learner Profile. Click on images to enlarge – the first is a set of guiding questions for the student to consider during the weekly reflection. The second provides space for notes. Click to download a PDF copy.
