How can student daily participation be increased? Student participation was lacking in fifth grade science. The teacher implemented the use of daily participation rubrics for each lesson, which was completed by both the student and the teacher through various non-treatment and treatment cycles. Non-treatment means a cycle without implementation of the student rubric during the science lessons. The teacher also implemented surveys and interviews for the students to obtain information about their opinions and attitudes regarding the daily participation rubrics. These were done at the beginning and end of the action research project. The results from this action research show that from the first non-treatment cycle to the last treatment cycle, student participation improved.
