How Do I Help Students Prepare?
• What will students actually be evaluated on? Is there a
• What is the Innovation Portal? Why use it for submission?
• Why and how should I use the Innovation Portal in my class
• New tools for your EDD classroom.
An Engineering Design Process
• The award goes to the team that best presents an authentic
and well documented design process.
(not necessarily which prototype actually worked…)
• EDD is about process, not only the solution.
A well done EDD project should show evidence of:
Project Management Skills
Prototyping and Testing
Reflection and Stakeholder Feedback
Professional Skills and Communication Skills
An Engineering Design Process
An Engineering Design Process
The “Grand Pitfalls” of EDD:
• No Research - It has clearly been done before, you just
never bothered to find out or worse, chose not to disclose.)
• One Design - Never exploring options other than the first
thing you thought of. No diversity.
• Craftsmanship - It does matter. Seek expert help if you are
not a master craftsman. They can teach you.
• Poor Testing - A good project will have qualitative testing.
Testimonials are not testing.
• Reflection and Stakeholder Feedback – Is there any? Are
your experts really experts?
• Professional Skills and Communication Skills
The Engineering Design Process Portfolio Scoring Rubric.
• Used for online qualification scoring.
• A simplified one page rubric will be used at competition to
determine the winner based on the EDPPSR
Why Should I be using the EDPPSR in my EDD Classroom?
• Common Language for Engineering Design.
• Developed by Post-Secondary and Industry.
• “AP Engineering May Be on the Horizon”

• Completing 3rd year of 3 year validation study (NSF)
• New alignment of PLTW EDD curriculum resources to match
the language and structure of the assessment rubric.

Best Practices in EDD
• Introduce students to the EDPPSR early on. It creates a
common language and a target for student to shoot for.
• Help your students develop a meaningful project name that is
engineering or scientific in nature.
• This is not an “invention” or “marketing course”. No silly
• It is okay for the project name to “evolve”.
• Don’t label projects “My EDD Project”.
• Introduce student to the Innovation Portal early on and make
sure the students provide enough context for the reviewer.
Does the judge have enough information to score the page?
• Don’t attach a ppt.
• Don’t create a page with nothing but links.
• 3-5 paragraphs.
