Often teachers struggle with assessment when it comes to incorporating project based learning into their curriculum. Here are a few resources with my favorite assessments!

  • Peer presentations 
    • Introduce this using a TED talk as an example
    • Assess knowledge, skill
    • Public forum encourages content mastery
    • Quick way to determine student progress and provide support
  • Reflection booth
    • Great video showing this
    • Assess progress and steps being used
    • Provides powerful baseline assessments
