  • Ensure that students not only state which ATL skills were used (be specific) with examples (be specific), but how and where they were applied. 

  • The students are asked to state ATL skill, give examples of those skills in the learning and product goals, and then explaining how and why they were applied. 

  • Listing multiple skills or even giving examples of multiple skills without detailed explanations and evidence will not allow students to reach the highest levels of the criterion.

  • While explaining the ATL skills used in learning and product goals, students should explain and highlight the ATL skill indicators explicitly used in the process along with multiple evidences. (e.g. don;t just state collaborative skills”, state :* Make fair and equitable decisions”
