This simple rubric is designed to assess a student's display board at a "Science Fair" type event. As my students developed independent investigations, they composed a formal scientific paper documenting their background research, methods, data collection and analysis, and conclusions. This rubric assesses the presence of those elements on the display board, as well as the overall equality of the display.
"Top Notch" Performance is as follows:
Detailed background information is provided in a neat, visually appealing manner. Information is entirely relevant to the project.
Question is centered and large. Hypothesis and variables are clearly and accurately identified. The procedure is described in detail.
Results are presented in the form of neat, colorful data tables, and graphs. A paragraph clearly provides your analysis of the data.
Conclusions are highlighted, clear, and show evidence of analysis. Relevant, new questions are presented.
Overall Quality and Visual Appeal:
Project is appealing, neat, and can easily be read from 2 feet away. Well organized and clear.
ADDITIONALLY, I have added this element to just ONE set of rubrics. Again, there are rubrics WITHOUT this element IN this rubric pack.
Student includes a fun, interactive element to engage their audience. Shows great creativity. Easy to find.
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.
