Unformatted text preview: N, the marker should consider how effectively the response describes in detail the method, procedure, or strategy used to provide a solution to the problem. Score Criteria 3 In the response, the student • provides a complete, well organized, and clear solution to the problem • presents, in detail, a strategy in a logical manner • demonstrates consistency of thought • uses physics vocabulary appropriately and precisely • presents an explicit relationship between the explanation and diagrams (if used) • states formula(s) explicitly • may make a mathematical error, however, the error does not hinder the understanding of either the strategy or the solution 2 In the response, the student • provides an organized response; however, errors sometimes affect the clarity • presents a strategy, but details are general and/or sometimes lacking • demonstrates consistency of thought most of the time; however, some gaps in logic leave the response somewhat open to interpretation • uses physics vocabulary; however, it may not be precise • presents an implicit relationship between explanation and diagrams (if used) • uses formula(s) that he/she likely inferred by analyzing the calculations • likely makes mathematical errors that may hinder the understanding of either the strategy or the solution 1 In the response, the student • lacks organization, and errors affect the clarity • attempts to present a strategy with little or no detail • demonstrates a lack of consistency of thought, and the response is difficult to interpret • uses physics vocabulary; however, it is often misused • presents a weak relationship between the explanation and diagrams (if used) • may not state formula(s); however, it is possible that the formula(s) can be deciphered by analyzing the calculations • makes mathematical errors that hinder the understanding of the strategy and/or the solution 0 In the response, the student • writes very little and/or presents very little relevant information • presents a response that is not organized and is confusing and/or frustrating to the reader • does not provide a strategy to solve the problem • uses little or no physics vocabulary; however, if present, it is misused • does not present a relationship between the explanation, if present, and diagrams (if used) • may state a formula, but it does not contribute toward the solution NR No response given. Physics 30 – January 2000 ii February 8, 2000 Holistic Scoring Guide Reporting Category: Physics CONTENT When marking CONTENT, the marker should consider how effectively the response uses physics concepts, knowledge, and skills to provide a solution to the problem. Score Criteria 4 In the response, the student • uses an appropriate method that reflects a thorough understanding of the major concepts and/or laws, and indicates where they apply to the solution • provides a complete description of the method used and shows how to solve the problem • correctly uses formula(s) and, although minor errors in substitution and/or calculation may be present, they do not hinder the understanding of the physics content • has drawn diagrams and/or sketches, if applicable, that are appropriate,...
