No matter the design of the student's Independent Learning Experience, all participants will create an end product to represent each student's learning. The student will present this end product at the conclusion of their Independent Learning Experience in front of a committee comprised of educators, including a subject-specific content specialist; administrators; and guidance counselors.
This review panel uses two rubrics to assess all Independent Learning Experience students; one of these is specifically the presentation rubric, and the other is the rubric for the Independent Learning Experience as a whole, factoring in aspects such as reflections on learnings and work ethic. Please see the attached rubrics for details.
