Reflection: Self-Graded Rubrics Can You Build It? - Section 6: Evaluation 2

 

After completing the lesson, I realized that the questions students were answering here are extremely valuable in assessing their own engineering design.  It would have been great to have the kids use a rubric of sorts to analyze their own work both in terms of creating, designing and building.  Here is a sample rubric I will have the children use in the future in order to assess their engineering skills. Students complete the rubric, analyzing their own performance and that of the group.  Afterwards they can identify what changes, if any they could have done to be more successful in the lesson.
