Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Capstone Project Work Day - Section 3: Explain


I have found that using update sheets and asking students to assess their progress on a project is far more effective than reminding students about the guidelines and due dates for projects. Having students examine their projects and the projects of their classmates encourages them to honestly reflect on the effort they have put into their project at a point where they still have time to make adjustments and complete the work. Having the students examine their project, finished or otherwise, against the rubric also allows for students to examine their progress and can serve as motivation to continue working and improving their project.
