A. Assign Student Checklists

Student checklists are great tools to ensure that the students understand the sequence and important aspects of an activity. Given a checklist of requirements, students should be able to "check" them off as they complete them. The structure of this checklist will vary with the length and complexity of the activity. For example, if the students are involved in collecting data and producing a spreadsheet and chart, their checklist may include the following components:

  • Measured the height of at least 10 students
  • Created a spreadsheet with all data
  • Generated a bar chart to display the data in graphical form
  • Wrote at least four sentences describing the data
  • Compiled the chart and sentences into a single document
  • Uploaded the document to the teacher's folder

However, if the students are involved in a long term project, where they must brainstorm the content, create the storyboards, produce the graphics, and pilot test the program, the checklist will be much more complex. See, for example the Multimedia Mania Student Checklist -- this checklist was used for the submission of student multimedia projects for a contest. The checklist  may be copied and used in the classroom (see permission statement).
