Self-Evaluation:

For this portion of the assessment, you will reflect on the webquest that you have completed, specifically, your role both as an individual researcher and a group member. This requires that you are actively thinking about your participation and what you have contributed to the project.

Remember, while completing this evaluation, think about specific examples that will illustrate your ideas (i.e. If you worked well with others, how did you do so?).

To conclude your evaluation, look at the rubric and decide where you fit. Explain why you think you deserve this ranking.

You may hand write this evaluation or type it up using a word processor. Make sure that your name is included, along with your group members' names.

Some questions to keep in mind while writing:

*What did I bring to the group as a participant?
*How well did I work with others?
*What did I contribute to the multi-genre research paper, and how much effort did I put into it?
*Where do I fall on the rubric rankings?
