Designing Your Own App Symbol

Designing Your Own App Symbol

Students will develop and create their own app (application) symbol or logo that represents a service or product and then explain its meaning after examining how we interpret, recognize, and respond to existing symbols in culture and society.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
