What To Do Before Turning It In - Evaluate Your Work

Tips on how to evaluate your research assignment before you...


Did you complete all the requirements listed by your teacher?  Go back and review the assignment sheet again to be sure.

• Check off each requirement.
• Make sure that you have included your name, your teacher's name, the date and the title.


Your evaluation will depend on a lot of different criteria.

Most of the critieria will be listed  by the teacher in the assignment. There might also be artistic decisions like the effectiveness of a type of product used: informational poster, slideshow, video, etc.

 All projects have the common criteria listed below...

1. Correct spelling

2. Overall neatness

3. Parts in a logical and correct order, nothing missing

4. Any borrowed material  properly cited

5. Any thesis statements or arguments supported with evidence

Many teachers provide a self-evaluation tool called a rubric which allows you to see what excellent, good, acceptable, and poor work looks like. This is really helpful.  You can adjust your project to comply with these expectations.   Check the rubric throughout your research and work sessions.  

After you evaluate your own work, you may want to ask a relative or friend to check it for spelling, neatness and organization. Then do a final touch up to your work and turn it in on time!

You may want to write down what you think your grade should be and why. This might help you later, if you want to discuss your grade with  your teacher.
