Student projects requiring a formal written composition will be evaluated by the standards set forth by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction found at http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/docs/curriculum/languagearts/secondary/elainformationalwriting.pdf

Some projects will involve answering questions directly related to the material in a worksheet that is provided via this site or a specified linking site. (The activity at HyperStat contains a worksheet and the answers are either correct or incorrect with the possibility for partial credit on the exercises that require computation.)

Others will be evaluated by the provided rubric for that activity which may be viewed on that activities page (see suggested rubric below). The variety of activities requires this variety of assessments to evaluate the students’ efforts and mastery of each project’s subject. The project evaluations should also be reinforced in class with in-class quizzes and/or tests that include the project information.
