Assessing Creativity and Designing for Creativity

If you need to assess a project-based learning activity for your class – how would you do so?

  • Knowledge – how has the student used previous knowledge into the design
  • Comprehension – Can they demonstrate the facts
  • Application – Apply their knowledge to actual situations
  • Analysis – break down ideas and use simpler parts to support generalizations
  • Synthesis – Can your ideas be broken down into alternative solutions
  • Evaluation – Make judgments based on external criteria

These steps may not be relevant to all age groups – you must decide what criteria you need to properly assess the student’s knowledge of a particular subject.
