Chapter 8


The iSearch is a real-world project that lends itself to a variety of ongoing authentic assessments. These assessments include formative assessment activities throughout the project and primary trait rubrics for the iSearch story, digital product and the presentation. In addition, there is an iSearch project checklist and an end-of-project student self-evaluation as well as a simple teacher/librarian project evaluation included in Chapter 8: "Authentic Assessment."
