5c i).State the Criteria for a good project

For a project to be good, it must satisfy these criteria:

  1. Relevancy: it should be relevant to the instructional objective and topic under study.
  2. Usefulness: it should result in a worthwhile end product fulfilling a long-standing need.
  3. Economical: it should be reasonable in so far as time, effort, cost, and availability of resources are concerned.
  4. Suitable and challenging: should be challenging enough and suitable to the mental age and ability of the learners, not too difficult or too simple. If difficult, the learners will be discouraged; if too easy, they will lose interest or not see the seriousness of the activity.
  5. Interesting and appealing: this is possible if the projects are chosen depending on the interests of the learners.
  6. Richness: it should promote an interdisciplinary approach to learning where the knowledge is viewed as a whole.
  7. Reality: the project should be based on real life situation. The learning experiences in a project must be capable of being applied in life.
