Activities in this Lesson
- Assessment Types:
Each student should go up in front of the class and present their findings on the robot type that they were assigned.
Each student will get a copy of the rubric provided. Usually when I do peer to peer assessment using rubrics I will ask everyone how do you think they did in each category. We go over each of the category write the number on the board and we have a discussion about it. We talk about what was really good and what could have been changed to make it better.
You can also change this rubric if you would like. I used Rubistar.com which allows you to print it in Excel,Word or PDF.
I usually will do my own rubric so that the students can see how I assessed their project along with what score their peers gave to them.
