2017 Review : Tool 04 - Student Project Checklists

Use and Impact of Tool 04 - Student Project Checklists in DigiTech

I used Student Project Checklists mostly with my multi-level Senior DigiTech class.  The senior students found it useful and empowering being able to track and monitor their own progress within projects, leading towards the achievement of credits for NCEA standards.  Although I initially trialled the Project Checklists with Junior Classes, time restraints (3 x 50 minute lessons per week, out of a total of 30 lessons per week), as well as junior students seeing their progress within the Class Project Task Lists, meant that the Student Checklists were not as favourable with junior students as they were with senior students, in terms of students monitoring their own progress and achievement in class.


As with the Class Project Task Lists, Student Project Checklists also use the colour code system to track and monitor achievement eg. green (complete), orange (incomplete) and red (not started).  


The following are examples of student feedback or posts about the effectiveness of Student Project Checklists to enable students to track and monitor their achievement:

In addition to this, many staff directly attributed the use of VTaL Tracking Sheets to Accelerating Shift within their subject areas this year.  This is reflected within the presentation in the following blog post: Visible Learning accelerates shift - Term 4 2017 Tamaki College
