• may have errors in units, significant digits, rounding, or graphing 3 In the response, the student
• uses an appropriate method that reflects a basic understanding of all four of the major concepts
or that reflects a good understanding of three of the major concepts
• uses an appropriate method that reflects an excellent understanding of two of the major
concepts and that reflects a basic understanding of one of the two remaining concepts
• uses formulas and/or diagrams that may be implicit, and these are applied correctly; however,
errors in calculations and/or substitutions that hinder the understanding of the physics content are
present
• provides explanations that are correct but lack detail
• has a major omission or inconsistency 2 In the response, the student
• uses an appropriate method that reflects a basic understanding of three of the four major
concepts or that reflects a good understanding of two of the major concepts
• gives formulas and/or diagrams that are implicitly correct; however, they are not applied to
determine the final solution or errors in the application of equations are present, and the answer is
consistent with calculated results 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 n...
