Update: Here’s a link to a very short flipagram of some of my first day projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqYJ2r6r1oY
Whatever your subject, a choice board can be an excellent way to get a look at what students have really learned in class. Allowing choice gives students the opportunity to create the products that they feel best showcase what they know. Levels 1, 3, and 4 are all doing different versions of this same choice board. My expectations of the product will be different depending on the level. Feel free to steal and adapt for your own class.

I am giving them an idea organizer tomorrow so that they can plan ahead for the projects that they will do in the exam period. I get a 90 minute period plus a 20 minute study session so I have lots of time! My semester exam Game Plan
On exam day I will use this rubric to give them their grade. rubricexam14 Let me explain it a little… The left side is for me, the right for them. On the top left, I will mark how many of each point value they completed and then I will mark an X if they receive full credit for each of the grading criteria. If they do not receive full credit I will write how many points they lost and in the comments I will write the reason I took points off. They get to self evaluate and explain why, and I get to collect some comments from them about favorite class memories and things I might clarify for the new year.
It is a new type of exam for me, I’ll let you know how it goes. I had a student take it early today and her products were great! I’ll take some pictures next week from kids of all levels!
