evaluation: (worth 10 pts)
Journal entries -- I wanted the entry section to be complete, with one entry for each session. It also need to be reflective in the sense that the students explicitly related a situation that they encountered in their service learning experience to a concept or theory we discussed in class.
Supervisor evaluation. -- The supervisors filled out this form. For full credit on this item, the students had to be judged reliable and useful by their supervisor.
Project design and execution -- Each project needed to be feasible. It also had to relate course material to their service site. Finally, the students needed to demonstrate that they performed the project.
Description of project -- I looked for the description to be comprehensible.
Connections with course material – The students had to explicitly make a clear when they gave their presentations.
Class discussion – the students needed to generate questions and comments from the class.
Write-up: (worth 20 pts)
Description of project – I looked for text that was comprehensible and clearly written.
Connections with course material – I wanted a clear and explicit explanation of how the course material related to their project.
Digital images (if applicable) – This area was required if the students had chosen the digital poster option. At a minimum, I required images.
