Scoring the short answer and long answer questions

This preview shows page 5 - 10 out of 86 pages.

Scoring the Short-Answer and Long-Answer Questions The remainder of the Grade 12 Pre-Calculus Mathematics (40S) Standards Test is composed of short-answer questions and long-answer questions. Short-answer questions are worth 1 mark each and long-answer questions are worth 2 to 5 marks each. Each question is designed to elicit a well-defined response according to the associated specific learning outcome(s) and relevant mathematical processes. Their purpose is to determine whether a student meets the standards for the course as they relate to the knowledge and skills associated with the question. To receive full marks, a student’s response must be complete and correct. Where alternative answering methods are possible, the Marking Key attempts to address the most common solutions. For general guidelines regarding the scoring of students’ responses, see Appendix A. Irregularities in Standards Tests During the administration of standards tests, supervising teachers may encounter irregularities. Markers may also encounter irregularities during local marking sessions. Appendix B provides examples of such irregularities as well as procedures to follow to report irregularities . If an Answer/Scoring Sheet is marked with “NR” and/or “0” only (e.g., student was present but did not attempt any questions) please document this on the Irregular Test Paper Report .

Marking Guide—Pre-Calculus Mathematics (40S)—January 2007 Page 5 Answer Key for Multiple-Choice Questions If you are using this sheet by punching out holes corresponding to the correct answers and overlaying this sheet on the Answer/Scoring Sheet then, 1) check the student’s responses for multiple bubbles first (questions with multiple bubbles are to be scored as “0”); 2) overlay this page on the Answer/Scoring Sheet ; and 3) count the number of correct responses, excluding questions with multiple responses, if any. You may also score the multiple-choice questions by making a transparency of this page and overlaying it on the Answer/Scoring Sheet .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
