I asked this question a while back, but I am pretty sure that no one, or almost no one answered it. So, now that this course is behind us I will ask it as your final reflection question:
A. Within the context of this course, and including creativity, creative problem solving, and innovative thinking, all things that I continually stress:
1. what questions should you be asking yourself when undertaking creative endeavors?
2. what questions should I be (have been) asking you? Or future teachers/learners/collaborators?
B. Did you complete all of the assignments/projects and blog posts? If not, why not?
If they are not on your blog, they are essentially not submitted, so you better do this before our meeting. We will be discussing your work and your proposed grade in our meeting.
C. Assign yourself a grade based on the breakdown below/ DEFEND YOUR PROPOSED GRADE.
Please note that a “C” / 2.0 represents satisfactory work, regular attendance, continuing improvement, and successful accomplishment of course objectives. If you ever want to have a conversation about your grade, or your performance in class please talk to me.
GUIDELINES TO CONSIDER FOR SELF_ASSESSMENT
YES. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ASSIGN A GRADE AND DEFEND THAT GRADE BASED ON THE GUIDELINES BELOW.

You fulfilled every part of the assignment according to its objectives and you made your work more interesting and complex through thoughtful reflection, work and revision. You basically created something extraordinary.

You fulfilled every part of the assignment adequately, and also did some parts extremely thoroughly and well.
3.0 or Good
You fulfilled every part of the assignment adequately (no mistakes).
2.5 or Intermediate between Good and Satisfactory
You touched on every part of the assignment with the approach overall, but your final project was not sufficiently complete or challenging to warrant 3.0. Or, you neglected a minor part of the assignment, but did the rest at 3.0 or higher quality.
2.0 or Satisfactory
You touched on every part of the assignment with the right idea or approach overall, but your project was not sufficiently complete or challenging to warrant 2.5. Or, you neglected part of the assignment but did the rest at 2.5 or higher quality.
1.5 or Intermediate between Satisfactory and Lowest Passing Grade
You made a serious effort and your approach overall was on the right track but there was at least one serious mistake in your process, technical or otherwise.
1.0 or the Lowest Passing Grade
Although you created something with some positive points, you either did not address the assignment’s main technical and conceptual objectives, or did so incorrectly.
