Ellis, Arthur K.; Alleman-Brooks, Janet – School Science and Mathematics, 1978
Examples of possible methods for unobtrusively evaluating student progress through real problem solving outcomes without formal testing are illustrated. These methods include the use of interviews, artifacts, observations, I learned statements, checklists, flow of discussion charts, and self-awareness exercises. (MN)
