Discuss how your planned assessments meet the key requirements for effective assessments. Reflect on how you might adjust your teaching during this project to allow more student input in the evaluation process.
Here is the link to our assessment page of our PBL project. I feel that my partner Mark and I were right on with our assessments. The assessments held the students accountable on their terms. We have two different kinds of assessments: Formative and Summative.
Our formative assessment starts with a Collaborative Learning Log: The students will be separated into groups of mixed abilities. They will then create a learning log Google Document that will be shared between the group. The group will then respond to different prompts and build a learning log for the group. The groups will also be given the opportunity to do
Learning Log Prompts
The Learning Log entries will be assessed using the following rubric.

Critiquing/Commenting on Learning Log Entries: The groups will share their learning logs with one other group in the class. The groups will then comment and critique the other group’s learning log entries on the differences, similarities, and changes that they think should be made. The critiques/comments will be assessed using the following rubric.

Online Quizzes: The students will also participate in online quizzes using a LMS like MOODLE or Google Sheets. These quizzes will provide the students with opportunities to be able to see how well they are actually understanding the material.
Concept Maps: The groups will also work on creating concept maps to aid in their understanding different ecosystems and the interactions that happen in them as well as the impact that humans have on them. Their maps will be assessed using the following rubric.
