Written by - Sridatt Lakhan image source: Once implemented the way it was meant to be, the evidence suggests, it is an academically sound approach to teaching and learning. The PBLA programme, now being implemented in all ESL non-credit classes that are funded by Citizenship and Immigration, has two critical shortcomings which I have encountered while trying to implement it in my classroom.
You can choose to take the course either full-time 15 weeks or part-time 28 weeks. See how past students have balanced their lives. Then work out for hours — my classes ranged from yoga and kickboxing to strength training and aerobics! I come home, shower, eat lunch, and continue with my Designlab projects.
I might join a group critique session on Google Hangouts, then take a break, watch a TV show, or hang out with friends. I finish the day by reading a book, surfing the web, or hanging out with friends or family.
I talk with my team members in the Bay Area, and do some backend content platform maintenance. Once I get home, I have dinner with friends, shower, and talk to my parents.
I get started on my UXA reading materials, and sometimes spend a bit of time Googling around the reading until I understand it properly. I try not to rush my work, and to reach out to my mentor if I get stuck. I often study until 1am, and occasionally, if I want to get something finished, until 3am or 4am!
I get home at 6, and take the dogs for another walk! The great thing about Designlab is they tell you the estimated time each project will take — which really helps you to schedule!
Each day I try to leave time for relaxation and spend time unwinding with family and friends. I try to go out to lunch every other week to catch up with friends or family.
Doing the full-time UXA track meant less in-person interaction, so I wanted to make sure I was seeing people! I work until dinnertime — usually on a mix of Designlab projects, product management work as a contractorand website development side projects.
A huge perk of being full-time and working at home was that I could run errands in the early afternoon when there was no traffic. Check out the questions below or visit the Help Center for anything else.

78 pts possible; 63 pts needed for your portfolio to “pass”. In education, the term assessment refers to the wide variety of methods or tools that educators use to evaluate, measure, and document the academic readiness, learning progress, skill acquisition, or educational needs of students.
While assessments are often equated with traditional tests—especially the standardized tests developed by testing companies and administered to large populations.
Examples of tasks in which rubrics can be valuable assessment tools include projects, writings, portfolios, and presentations.
If the type of student performance requires interpretation, a rubric can be used to identify and characterize the ranges of performance that might be observed.
