Grading
Mr. Smith is the world geography teacher who is faced with grading the project related to the benchmark: Monitor the effects of pollution on a specific stream. Some students have turned in written reports, some have prepared oral presentations, some have drawn graphs or charts, and others have a PowerPoint slide show prepared. Just deciding how to grade such diverse products can be overwhelming.
What should Mr. Smith do to grade his students' work evenly?

Mr. Smith should come up with a rubric of what specifics he is look for in this project. This criteria will allow him to grade each student's project, although different but on the same topic, fairly and consistently.

Great idea, a rubric would be the best suggest, so that it is clear to the students what his expectations are for the assignment and how the work should be formatted.

He should have come up with a guideline to begin with and give the students certain options along with a rubric that guides the assessment as well as the grading criteria. Once students are done and have turned in the project it is usually too late.

I agree. There needs to be a rubics in place prior to the start of the project and the students will all be graded equally.

Mr. Smith could come up with a rubric that consists of the student being graded on how they present their project in front of the class. Also, if the students use a good tone while speaking and presenting their projects. Also, if the students projects are clear and easy to read can be another criteria in the rubric. This way that all students can get graded fairly, and receive the same amount of points possible.

Mr. Smith should use a rubric that is specifically designed to look at and measure the content within the project. By doing this each student is graded on a level playing field and can even grade their peers. That way they can judge the content and compare it to their own.
