Protocol Overview and Instructions:
All students have preferences in terms of which part of the Creative Sequence they prefer to work within. In order to help them (and older students as well) think this through, we developed several assessment options. This assessment is geared toward High/Middle school students, but can be used for any age group. It is called the
Creative Sequence Assessment.

"I LOVED this strategy. Students were engaged and curious to know what their responses meant at the end. When I asked students how accurate they felt it was, some shared they expected the results and others affirmed it was something they didn’t quite know about themselves. Together, we have used this information to help us throughout the semester to use our strengths and help each other grow in new areas."
"I found it interesting, because it’s a fun way to find out more about who you are as a person."
Meet the Educator:
My name is Erin Carmody, and I teach 7th grade PE, 8th grade Health, and 8th grade Guided Academics at Lakeshore Middle School in Grand Haven, Michigan. I have been involved with futurePREP’d since the summer of 2013 in iChallengeUth, iChallengeU, Watercooler Session, PREP’d 2020, and FUZE/Unite4Insight. These amazing experiences inspired me to get my masters in learning design and innovation in 2017 (Go Waves)! I enjoy the process...particularly investigation and ideation. I’m looking forward to learning alongside you and growing our PBL experiences!
"The creative sequence allows for creativity to flourish and reach beyond typical ideas. Each protocol helps build, challenge, and expand upon learning! It truly helps learners dig into what they’re doing and showcase all the possibilities."
