This simple rubric is designed to assess a student's experimental design. As my students develop independent investigations, they compose a formal scientific paper documenting their background research, methods, data collection and analysis, and conclusions. This rubric asses the "methods" section and evaluates student's question, hypothesis, variables, and procedure. An additional category evaluates the overall equality of the experiment and report.
To print four boxes per page, open the file using Adobe Acrobat Reader and choose the option "multiple pages" on the print screen. The first four pages are the backsides to the cards, while the remaining eight pages are the actual task cards.
