Product Description
This test includes 15 short-answer style questions (no multiple choice) on the genetics unit for middle school students. Includes specific NGSS standards being assessed and a holistic scoring rubric. (Editable format so you may change individual questions to fit your curriculum.)


1.) TRADITIONAL: use the "score" column to either mark the question correct or incorrect; or, you can have a certain number of points associated with each question. Then just total up the student's points earned, and grade as normal. The included rubric would not be necessary for this type of grading.

2.) STANDARDS-BASED (intended use): Teacher determines individual score for each question based on scoring rubric. All scores for each assessed standard can be averaged together for an overall score for that standard. So, for example, if a student earns a 3, 3, and a 2 on three questions all related to standard MS.LS.1, then this averages to a 2.6, which can be rounded to an overall score of 3. Teacher can then determine how this correlates to their own grading system for that standard. (For example, I use the system of 4=100%, 3=89%, 2=79%, 1=69%, and 0=59%. Students cannot earn below a 59%. In my standards-based gradebook, students earn a grade for each standard they've mastered, as opposed to individual assignments as is typically done in a traditional gradebook.)
