How to evaluate the learning with the cards?

START

Identify a project, training course, work-related activity, or volunteering role that you have experienced. Using an A3 sheet of paper, write a short description of that activity and give it a name. Turn the paper over to start to use the cards.

SELECT

Discuss with your supervisor, associate, or team, which of the descriptions on the cards has most relevance to you. Limit your selection to 6 cards (any colours) that best describe your strengths, plus a further 6 that may be appropriate. 

SORT

Divide the A3 sheet into 6 equal parts. Sort the card bundles onto the paper by grouping them in piles according to their colour. This should give you six differently coloured piles with 18 cards in each. 

SHARE

Using only these cards, think about and consider the detail of your learning activity or experience. Explain your thinking and offer, and listen, to the advice of others as you talk through each of the capabilities. 

SURVEY

Spend some time browsing through each set of cards; feel free to discuss their content. As you move through the cards, consider which descriptions best relate to the experience you initially described.

STORE

Finally, capture your selection of cards, perhaps by taking a photograph or copy. Try writing about your personal strengths and characteristics with reference to the descriptions on the cards.
