Students are graded on their daily work and a variety of assessments.
Participation (actively engaged in class, labs, etc.): not graded but “booster” if borderline on a grade.
Daily work (labs, assignments, reflections) will make up 50% of their grade. It is scored based on 0-4 rubric shown below. Students should have this glued into the front of their science notebook already.
Students are expected to keep their “Science Notebook” neat, organized, and up to date. All student work will be glued into this notebook and they are responsible to bring it to class daily.
The product is VERY neatly done and EXTREMELY well organized
The product shows LOTS of creativity and a minimum of 4 colors.
Completed on time
*ALL work needs to be school appropriate (language and content).
**WOW: Works of Wonder must be an extremely superior product. Upon viewing by the class or teacher, a WOW that is NOT a WOW will cause the score to be dropped to a “1” for the person and the collaborative group.
Assessments (tests, projects, presentations) will be 50% of their grade.
*A rubric will be given to students when projects or presentations are assigned to aide the student in achieving the expectations.
