What is in the report?
For each section of the report, students will write about the process and will also provide evidence. The report is a chance to bring everything together!
The information below (from the Personal Project Guide) suggests what students might include in the report.
Objective A: Planning - Students present what they did in their project.
Students • state a learning goal for the project and explain how a personal interest led to that goal • state an intended product and develop appropriate success criteria for the product • present a clear, detailed plan for achieving the product and its associated success criteria.
Examples of supporting evidence could include:
• a list and/or diagram of interests and related learning goals • a list of possible strategies to achieve personal and academic goals • a diagram showing the connections between the learning goal and the product • a series of steps leading to the completion of the product
• a timeline for completing short- and long-term tasks.
Objective B: Applying skills - Students show how ATL skills contributed to the learning goal and product.
Students: • explain how the ATL skill(s) was/were applied to help achieve their learning goal • explain how the ATL skill(s) was/were applied to help achieve their product • support the explanations with detailed examples or evidence.
Examples of supporting evidence could include: • a series of inquiry questions (research skills) • sample correspondence with the project supervisor (communication skills) • screenshot of daily reminders or alerts to complete personal project tasks (self-management) • reflection about resolving a conflict (social skills) • summary of prior learning that is relevant to the project (thinking skills).
Objective C: Reflecting - Students report on why they did their project.
Students: • explain the impact of the project on themselves or their learning • evaluate the product based on the success criteria • support their comments with specific evidence or detailed examples.
Examples of supporting evidence could include: • evaluation of the product against the success criteria • images showing key features of the product • analysis of the causes for success and/or failure • summary of new knowledge or insights related to the learning goal.
