How I Will Be Graded











STEP ONE: Only students and teachers who decide to take part in the water project MUST fill out this form.

STEP TWO: Fill out this form AFTER your teacher tells you that your class will work on this project.

STEP THREE: Read each item, make a choice or type in your answer.

STEP FOUR: CLICK the "Finish" button, when you are done.

The "Start Over" button will erase all of your answers.

It is a good idea to print out your answers on paper, BEFORE you click the "Finish" button. Save the printed pages so that you can see if you learned more about computer technology after you finished the whole project.

  This form is used twice. The first time it is used to record what you already know about computer technology, before you start the water project. Then, again, this form is used after you have finished the water project to see if you learned more about computer technology.
