How to evaluate main lesson books

My first "issue" of the Waldorf-Ideen-Pool e-newsletter arrived today. Among the contents was a link to an easy method for main lesson book evaluation, or Epochenheft-Beurteilungen.

The author uses smiley faces to rate students on these factors:
  • How well the notebook was taken care of (Heftpflege)
  • handwriting (Schrift)
  • page borders (Ränder)
  • illustrations (Bilder)
  • completeness (Vollständigkeit)
  • Descriptions (Beschreibungen)
So far, we haven't provided our children with any formal evaluations. Still, it's nice to know in which areas this classroom teacher evaluated her students' work.
