What is it? The Project Design Rubric uses the 8 Essential Elements of PBL as criteria to evaluate projects. The rubric describes three levels to assess the design of a project: Lacks Essential Features of Effective PBL, Needs Further Development, Incorporates Best PBL Practices. Definitions and practical examples are used to clarify the meaning of each dimension.

Why do we like it? The rubric helps educators understand the difference between a simple "project" and rigorous PBL. Teachers who are new to PBL can see how to move from beginner to expert.

How can you use it? You and your colleagues can use the rubric to guide the design of projects, give formative feedback, and reflect and revise.
