This product is for a Summative (Final) Assessment for Next Generation Science Standard LS 1-3. This standard is on Levels of Organization in the human body. The assessment is perfectly tailored to assess students' mastery on the standard. Each component of the standard has been taken into consideration.
This assessment requires students to go back to their notes and teacher-provided articles to build an argument that states that the body is made of Levels of Organization, by first creating an outline. They will also include a visual to go along with their argument.
This is a Standards Based Assessment that includes a comprehensive scoring rubric.
This assessment is very clear and user friendly. No more questioning what grade students earn because the rubric is very straight-forward with no gray area or wiggle room. In order to differentiate, students can be scored using a sliding rubric scale.
My students have done very well with this assessment model and they enjoy being able to draw as well as explain the concepts.
