Projects and learning

Project characteristics that support assessment

  • Make a plan - communicate the plan in a web page
  • Execute the project and document the process eg in a Blog
  • Evaluate the tools and the outcome - communicate through web page(s)

Work collaboratively with peers (friends and colleagues) using collaborative tools. Do research and reference sources. Take into account safety, copyright and local rules. Make clear your individual contribution to processing the information and presenting it.

Tools and context

  • Choose a project where data can be collected and analysed
  • Use of a collaborative spreadsheet such as Google Docs is not mandatory but it will provide assessment opportunities across several units.
  • Use other subjects eg History, Science or Music as contexts as it will improve efficiency.
  • Choose areas of interest to learners to sustain motivation. The subject of your work is up to you and your interests.
  • Try to find the most efficient ways of providing evidence to support the assessment criteria.
