Changes in values and attitude evolve over time as our expertise and experience grows and so cannot be measured. However, by exposing students to activities such as these we start them on their journey of awareness of the wider world.

Assessment tasks are dependent on the teacher's identified outcomes of the unit, the tasks selected and the evidence that teachers determine to be acceptable for the age group.

Students can create and use rubrics such as the diary, to assess their knowledge and skill development in the various writing text-types required by the activities. This can be done by identifying the critical elements of the text type and then describing what constitutes best practice.


Students can examine their effectiveness as researchers using this questionnaire.

Respect and Responsibility

Even though it is impossible to put a quantitative value on the development of values, students should be given the opportunity to reflect on their learning by completing this reflections task.
