Reflect on the Experience & Your Performance

When finished with a project, take time to reflect on the experience and evaluate your performance.


  • Was the question/problem too narrow or too broad? Was it worthy of investigation?
  • How did I locate appropriate, reliable, and useful information?
  • Did I use a range and variety of resources?


  • What evidence do I have to show whether or not I communicated my findings effectively?
  • How did I decide which presentation format to use?
  • How well did I use different communication tools?  How can I improve?


  • How well did I collaboratively work with others?
  • What is one example of how I worked well within the group?
  • What improvements can I make in order to work more effectively with others?


  • How did I apply past reflections/experiences to this project?
  • Was I aware of my progress throughout the process and did I make adjustments when necessary?
  • Was I able to make connections to other subject areas?


  • Did I construct and follow a time-line for the project?
  • What organizational tools did I use?
  • How could I have been better organized?
