One way that Heather will be tracking her students progress is through the use of Google Forms. As she creates them, this page will get updated.
Issue Topic Selection - Students fill this out prior to our second 20% day. The teacher and student then conference about the issues chosen. The form was left editable so that the student can go back and amend anything from the conference selection. A nice point about Forms is that it will then show both sets of responses, a great assessment piece!
Self Assessment #1- Students are asked about creating and maintaining their calendar, what they have accomplished and their next steps. I worked on this with my Spec.Ed EA, but I think it will be tweaked for next time.
Self Assessment #2- Given about midway through the time frame, students are again asked about their progress and being on task.
Final Self Assessment- This was broken into 2 parts: how well they did in terms of the project, and what they thought of 20% time. There will be some editing of how to submit responses as I wanted them to 'check all that apply' but did the wrong type of question.
How to Be Awesome Conference - this form was used to track students' session selections, t-shirt size, home school and lunch preference. The only tweak I would make if we used it again was for lunch as some students choose 3 lunch options. http://goo.gl/htLjQl
