Assessing STEM

What is the best way to assess a STEM student when they do projects and activities?

Every student approaches the project different and every student comes with different experience. It is impossible, at best, to give a standardized test to measure what a STEM student has accomplished or learned from a project. From eight years of teaching STEM across Mississippi I have come up with a working solution to this problem.  I call my evaluation approach the Quad-C (c) or CCCC(c) method.

The first C stands for Commitment.

 

The second C stands for Completion.

 

The third C stands for Comprehension.

 

The fourth C stands for Cycling.
