Evaluate includes these elements:

  • Rubrics – Summative assessment of process and product
  • Reflections on process – SLIM Toolkit – final reflection
  • Peer Review

Culmination conversations

Rubrics: Some examples

Reflection on process

Peer review

Students who have worked in a class wiki are very familiar with the work of their peers and Peer review can be very powerful.

Use the Praise Question Polish  scaffold and students can upload these onto the wiki page they have reviewed.

Culminating Conversations:  Teaching team


Students can also take part in a round table discussion of their learning.  They are given a higher order question relating to, but not the same, as their inquiry question.  It is perhaps the best way to observe how student-led inquiry has led to deep learning.
