Tessellation Evaluation

Evaluation

Here's the rubric that I use when grading the projects. I always give them to the students at the time that I give the project so that they know more about what I am expecting. I've also found that finding another teacher that is doing the same project or having a student teacher helps if we can grade a group of them together to establish some guidelines with real projects. What is a project that should get a 12 in creativity? Why? It helps to talk this through with someone else before tackling the entire class or classes of student projects.

Students are also expected to turn in these sheets with their completed projects for me to fill out.
