Assessment for Project-Based Learning

Meeting Group

How do you grade and assess team projects? Do you give the same grade to the whole group? Do you assign roles and sections to allow individual grading? Do you have students evaluate one another’s contributions? And how do you know if students have really become better team players over the course of the quarter? In these two sessions, we will examine the pros and cons of a variety of assessment and grading methods—and brainstorm ways to overcome the potential issues. We will explore:

  • The principles of the “transparency framework” for assignment and assessment design
  • Assessing “soft skills” like teamwork
  • Effective formative & summative team assessments BC faculty have used before
  • Strengths and limitations of different approaches to assessment and grading
