Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Unit synthesis: Am I proficient? (4 of 4) - Section 3: Engineering design thinking rubric creation


Many students were successful with this process; many students also struggled.  Nearly all students that struggled would have benefited from a model rubric with more student-friendly language.  The next time I teach this course, I will be sure to have this ready.  

More ambitiously, for this unit as a whole, I would like to build out a well-defined interactive rubric for all each level and skill of the engineering-design thinking process.  Not only would I be better able to assess student skills, but students would have a very powerful resource for self-assessing skills and developing greater mastery.

Unit synthesis: Am I proficient? (4 of 4)

Unit 1: "Unit 0": Engineering design thinking
Lesson 11 of 12

Objective: Students will be able to: 1) describe the features of a standards-based grading system; 2) develop a rubric for engineering design thinking by observing college level versions of engineering design thinking skills; 3) self-assess engineering design thinking skills; and 4) develop strategic next steps for improving mastery.

Big Idea: Good designers are mindful of process. How might we use examples of high-level engineering design thinking processes to self-assess our own mastery level?
