Required Artifact 

Description of the "Pitch to someone in field"
  • In 1 minute, you can orally deliver your pitch to a person that understands your work without any notes or visuals.  Your performance is video recorded or observed by an assessor (i.e., teacher or internship mentor).
    • Your performance addresses:
      • Why are you doing what you’re doing? (Address the problem or question of your work)
      • How are you addressing this question or problem?
      • What happened so far?
      • Articulate action steps and what happens next.


Your assessor can validate that:
  • All components of the performance are present.
  • Claims are supported by evidence.
  • The language and word choice reflects deep understanding of the question or problem.

Scholar Performance that is nearly passing:
  • The scholar needed to better emphasize why they were doing their work.
  • The scholar was missing action steps.
