Building Blocks of a WebQuest



  1. A set of evaluation/assessment criteria that give the learners a clear understanding of the grading criteria which will be used to evaluate their learning as well as their performance. The assessment rubric(s) should align with the culminating project or performance, as outlined in the task section of the WebQuest and in the objectives specified. Teachers should specify whether there will be a common grade for group work vs. individual grades.

  1. A conclusion that brings closure to the quest, reminds the learners about what they've learned, and perhaps encourages them to extend the experience into other domains--rhetorical questions or additional links to encourage students to extend their thinking into other content beyond this lesson.

  1. A page for teachers that includes information to help other teachers implement the WebQuest, including

    • target learners

    • standards/specific objectives

    • notes for teaching the unit

    • examples of student work.
