You can use the rubric on this sheet to help you evaluate the students’ prosthetic designs and presentations.
The following rubric is a suggestion on how to grade the projects. Keep in mind that assessing this type of work can be highly subjective, and a four point rubric is difficult to use in such a project. You are welcome to modify it to suit your needs as you see the lesson unfolding in your specific classroom.
