Description: Pre-workshop Coffee, Tea, & Cookie Reception 3-4 pm in Harrington Tower Rm 307; Lecture 4: Assessment lecture 4-5 pm in Rm 225. Assessments are typically what students have done to them. But students need to know where their strengths are, and where any perceived weaknesses lie. So what if students become the assessors, both in teams and as individuals? Can students be expected to make informed and self-critical appraisals of their own performance? This possibility has been the subject of systematic research in higher education, in high schools, in junior high schools and in many countries. And the universally agreed outcome has been that not only can they do it, but that they learn from it very quickly. This is a matter of students learning to become connoisseurs of performance; what it means for performance to be poor, adequate, good or excellent in design, technology and engineering. Such understanding is the bedrock from which students can progressively enrich their performance.
