Here are some samples of assessments and student work from my courses.
In Anatomy & Physiology 2, I assign each student to a type of immune cell and ask them to make a comic showing the role that cell plays in the immune system. The goal of this assignment is to help students learn the entire life cycle of a single immune cell, make connections between the roles of interacting immune cells, and have some creative autonomy. Students usually think this is a fun assignment. A few complain about their drawing skills, but I point out that cells look like circles and they can use stickers if they really don’t want to draw circles.
I assess their comics using the rubric below, which students can view in Canvas:
|Grading Criteria for Immune Comic (each part is worth 1 pt)||Instructor Comments||Points|
|Content: your comic should include the following:
|Ease of Understanding:
I fill in the rubric with comments that students can view on Canvas. Here are some great comics that students have made for this assignment:
