Lab Write Up Rubric

  • Lab Grading Rubric

    Labs are graded on a five point scale and must include the following.

    1. What the student did (was expected to do) in the lab experience.

    2. How the student did it (set up, measured, plotted, graphed, performed), in the lab.

    3. What the data shows (interpret, analyze, what was created from #2)

    4. Restate what they learned, (and should have) learned.

    All labs are graded on first being completely done and then the student's conclusion on the lab as noted in the four part expections listed above.

    For further explaination, of how to score the most points see below.

    Labs will be graded on a five point conclusion. The lab will be checked for completeness: however, only the conclusion will be graded, but the lab must be complete in order to grade. The conclusion is to be written on a seperate piece of paper (unless otherwise noted) and handed in along with the lab. The graded conclusion content should incluse WHAT YOU DID, HOW YOU DID IT, WHAT YOUR DATA SHOWS, AND RESTATE WHAT YOU (should have) LEARNED. The conclusion should be no less that three full paragraphs in lenght.

    Grading is as follows:

     0 Points

     1 Point

     2 Points

     3 Points

     4 Points

     5 Points

     Not handed in.

     Writing does not tell about what was done or what they learned. Random collection of thoughts and no coherent writing.

     Writing shows no understanding of what the data shows or what they learned, but does attempt to discuss only what they did and how.

     Writing show some understanding of what was done, how it was done and what the data shows, but nothing of what they learned. Also, at least two scientific terms were used.

    Writing explains what they did, how they did it, what the data shows, but does not develop connections to prior knowledge or what they learned.

     Writing fully describes what they did, how they did it, what the data shows, and what they learned and develops connection with prior knowledge using multiple key scientific terms with clear, concise language.
