2. Structured Evaluation using a Rubric

You may want to consider a more structured review and assessment of student Web projects.

The Global Schoolhouse™ CyberFair Contest provides an excellent example of student peer review using a formal evaluation rubric. As part of the process of entering the contest, students agree to assess other student entries using an online rubric. In the Peer Review process, students share their impressions and judgements about work done by other students. All students thus receive feedback on how well their peers felt stated goals were accomplished.

The CyberFair Peer Review evaluation rubric itself provides an excellent model of an evaluation tool that could be modified to meet specific needs in any number of classroom endeavors. This rubric has been condensed for Web viewing. You can also download it in Microsoft™ Word™ RTF or Word™ 98 format and print or edit it. Many teachers have adopted and adapted this rubric for use with their own students. For instance, see Art Wolinsky's adaptation of this rubric for projects completed by his high school students at Southern Regional High School Remote Internet Connection Required in New Jersey.

The Global SchoolNet Foundation also has plans to develop a student web project Review Registry Remote Internet Connection Required where you can request formal reviews from the community using this kind of assessment tool. No date has been announced for completion of this service.

In addition, the Evaluation Resources section on the next page lists other sources of rubrics to evaluate Web pages.

Whatever rubric you decide to use, we recommend that you and your students thoroughly review the rubric before beginning work on the project. If you have time, they can even use the rubric to evaluate a selection of Web projects done by other students so that your students have a thorough understanding of the application of each rubric element.
