This may include (but is not limited to), assessment of:
- Reflective essays in which students write about their research process.
- Annotated bibliographies or research projects to evaluate the quality of sources and how students have incorporated sources into their work.
- Research journals kept by students over the course of a project. In the journal, students would be asked to describe the resources they’ve used, strategies they have tried, and how their research question may have evolved as their understanding of the subject has increased.
