Creativity Contract (5) – Self-Evaluation

– I hope you are not sitting in class now realizing it is your independent work day.
Sorry for the late announcement yesterday.
– Last night, I’ve sent out answers to some of the questions you had about Creativity Contract.
Check the Q&As here if you haven’t looked at them yet.

PART 1. Your Progress Check
By now you should have completed at least one and almost completed the second one. You might have started another or started working on your documentation. We will talk about documentation and especially your self-evaluation today.

PART 2. Documentation Revisited

Like we said, one of the most important parts of your contract is the individual documentation you will create for each project. Please keep in mind that your projects will not be graded without documentation, and read carefully to meet all the requirements.

(1) Components
– Write about your experience/progress/feeling with each project.
– Write what you’ve learned and include references
(Follow APA style to cite your sources; here is the APA Citation Generator.)
– Include your evaluation criteria and score your process/work (use a 50 point scale).

(2) Delivery: There are still many questions about how to present documentation. It is up to you, but make sure that I would need to know which documentation is for which project.
– You can list your project outcomes along with documentation on the same Creativity Contract page
– You can create create a sub-page for each outcome and insert the documentation
– You can create a separate documentation page on your portfolio site
– You can create another media and provide the link (or attach the file)
(e..g, you can use your own blog site linked to your creativity contract page, or audio pod casts/word docs attached to your creativity contract page)

PART 3. Self-Evaluation

As you may note, we’ve experimented various evaluation approaches. We created our own evaluation criteria for commercials, surveyed the audience responses, and reflected over the effects on your own performance. We tried a self-checklist for glogs. Also, we did peer group evaluations for the stop-motion animation videos. Peer- and self- evaluation have been much complimented since they increase student consciousness over their works and responsibility. Here is an article that talks about the effects of self- and group evaluation.

For this creativity contract, your self-evaluation will compose 50% of your total creativity score.
– Read this example that I would like you to follow in terms of the “format.”
* We will be actually using this for a critical thinking and problem solving project next month.
– Create your own evaluation criteria (use a 50 point scale)
– Evaluate your work


1. Be sure to attend the class since it is going to be the last day for you to be able to discuss some questions. I plan to check in with everyone, but will help those that are currently stuck on something first.
