Unformatted text preview: correct, and complete • has no major omissions or inconsistencies 3 In the response, the student • uses an appropriate method that reflects a good understanding of the main concepts and/or laws, and indicates where they apply to the solution • provides a description of the method used and/or shows how to solve the problem • correctly uses formula(s); however, errors in substitution and/or calculation may hinder the understanding of the physics content • has drawn diagrams and/or sketches, if applicable, that are appropriate, although some aspect may be incorrect or incomplete • may have several minor inconsistencies or perhaps one major inconsistency; however, there is little doubt that the understanding of physics content is good 2 In the response, the student • uses a method that reflects a basic understanding of the major concepts and/or laws, but experiences some difficulty indicating where they apply to the solution • provides either a description of the method used or shows how to solve the problem • uses formula(s); however, errors and inconsistencies in substitution and/or calculation hinder the understanding of the physics content presented • has drawn diagrams and/or sketches, if applicable, that may be appropriate, although some aspect is incorrect or incomplete • has inconsistencies or a major omission 1 In the response, the student • uses a method that reflects a poor understanding of the major concepts and/or laws, and experiences difficulty indicating where they apply to the solution • provides a description of the method used, or provides a solution, that is incomplete • may use formula(s); however, the application is incorrect or inappropriate • has drawn diagrams and/or sketches, if applicable, that are inappropriate, incorrect, and/or incomplete • has minor and major inconsistencies and/or omissions 0 In the response, the student • uses a method that reflects little or no understanding of the major concepts and/or laws • does not provide a description of the method used • may use formula(s) and substitution, but they do not address the question • has drawn diagrams and/or sketches, if applicable, that are incorrect, inappropriate, and incomplete • has major omissions NR No response is given. Physics 30 – January 2000 iii February 8, 2000 “Anaholistic” Scoring Guide Major Concepts: Direction of magnetic field; Circular motion; Effect of electric field on moving charges; Formula derivation and unit analysis. Score NR Criteria No response is given. 0 In the response, the student • identifies an area of physics that does not apply to the major concepts • uses inappropriate formulas, diagrams, and/or explanations 1 In the response, the student • attempts at least two of the major concepts or uses an appropriate method that reflects a good understanding of one of the major concepts • makes errors in the formulas, diagrams, and/or explanations, and the answer is not consistent with calculated results 2 In...
