Product Description

The Molecular Genetics Portfolio/Reflective Journal is an assessment tool where the STUDENT picks how they want to show you they have mastery of the subject.

The students are given 11 different objectives they need to show mastery of. They do this by completing a project. The type is of their choice. These are some suggestions:

  • Make a collage
  • Comprise a song or rap
  • Construct a mobile
  • Make a poster
  • Make a PowerPoint
  • Assemble a scrap book
  • Traditional answer in writing (in a "project" form)
  • Other ideas you have (check with me first)

Students are encouraged to be as creative as possible. This increases long term memory results.

As part of this assignment, students have to give a Self-Assessment, and justify their own grade.

This assignment can be an additional assessment for students or the main assessment used.

I have used these assignments in class for years. Being a science teacher, I tested out the benefit of these assignments. The first year I started using them I had four Biology classes. I had two of the classes use the assignments, and two not use them. The two classes that used the portfolio/reflective journals had class test averages 20-30% higher than that classes that did not use them. Since that year I have used these assignments in all of my classes. The students do complain about them, but during the end-of-year survey I have students fill out, one of the most common responses I get is to continue using the assignments in the future. I have even had former students who are now in college contact me and say they do these assignments on their own in college as a test preparation tool.
