Loveland, Thomas R.
Technology Teacher, v65 n2 p19 Oct 2005
There is nothing more frustrating for a student than to receive a project assignment with little or no description of how it will be graded. The student completes the project and then the teacher picks a grade by some unseen checklist. For students, parents, school administrators, and a program advisory board, this method of student assessment would seem vague and unfair. Fortunately, there are excellent guidelines for developing student assessments in technology education. This article focuses on one type of standards-based assessment strategy.
