Revised Rubric

I revised my rubric. Sorry it isn’t in a very easy to read format. 

Newton’s Law Project Rubric

Criteria

Experiment/ Scientific Method

Measurement /graph (scatter plot)

Demonstration of Newton’s Laws of motion concepts

Communication of results

Collaboration

20

Experiment is conducted following the scientific method with a very measurable hypothesis, independent and dependent variable, control, and constants. Obvious efforts are made to keep the experiment as controlled as possible.

All steps in scientific method are present.

Measurements are accurately taken with appropriate units used and labeled. Graph (scatter plot) clearly shows the relationship between to proportions such as mass and volume.

Through the experiment one or more Newton’s Law concept(s) have been demonstrated in such a way that shows the relationship between two or more of the concepts in a proportion such as mass/volume.

 

 

Experiment details are communicated clearly including a conclusion using content specific vocabulary; uses an approved digital communication tool.

 

 

Students collaborated well by communicating and being very decisive to reach project goals.

15

Experiment is conducted following the scientific method with a clear hypothesis, independent and dependent variable, control, and constants. Experiment is as controlled as possible.

All steps in scientific method are present.

Measurements are accurate with appropriate units used and labeled. Graph (scatter plot) shows the relationship between to proportions such as mass and volume.

Through the experiment one or more Newton’s Law concept(s) have been partly demonstrated in such a way that shows the relationship between two or more of the concepts.

 

Experiment details including the conclusion are communicated adequately using appropriate vocabulary using approved communication tool.

 

 

Students collaborated by effectively communicating to make decisions with some conflicts that are resolved quickly without teacher involvement.

 

10

Experiment is conducted in a way that somewhat follows the scientific method with a vague hypothesis, independent and dependent variables, control, and constant.

Experiment is overall confusing with no clear conclusion.

Scientific method is not followed.

Measurements are not accurate with inappropriate units used. Graph (not scatter plot) vaguely illustrates the relationship between two proportions such as mass and volume.

Through the experiment one of Newton’s Law concept(s) have been vaguely demonstrated in such a way that somewhat shows the relationship between two or more of the concepts.

 

 

Experiment details are communicated poorly using some related vocabulary using an unapproved communication tool. Results are unclear with a conclusion that falls to state whether or not the hypothesis was correct or incorrect;

Students were not effective at collaborating. Conflicts occurred often with teacher having to intervene to resolve conflict.

 

Final Score:            /100
