Long- and short-term projects are great ways of assesing students' knowledge and presentation skills at the same time. In projects, students typically solve a problem, investigate a sience issue, engage in a simulation, or a number of other activities. They then present their results in a variety of ways, including oral presentations, posters, PowerPoint presentations, murals, skits, videos, reports, or displays. Students can do projects as individuals or small groups, but it is very important that they understand the evaluation criteria for their projects before they begin.
