Entry Scoring Guide

Growth Through Writing

Level 6

Student work and Self-reflection Sheet show extensive knowledge of the scientific concepts presented. The student uses relevant terms appropriately and provides evidence of excellent growth in understanding of scientific concepts through comparison of original and revised samples of work. There is exceptional evidence that the entry has been revisited and improved to reflect newly-gained knowledge, skills, and increased depth of understanding. Insightful connections are made with other scientific concepts and real-world situations. All aspects of the tasks are completed thoroughly. Written expression is well-organized and contributes to clear, coherent and exemplary communication.

Level 5

Student work and Self-reflection Sheet show strong knowledge of the scientific concepts presented. The student uses relevant terms appropriately, providing evidence of very good growth in understanding of scientific concepts through comparison of original and revised samples of work. There is convincing evidence that the entry has been revisited and improved to reflect newly-gained knowledge, skills, and increased depth of understanding. Thoughtful connections are made with other scientific concepts and real-world situations. All aspects of the tasks are complete. Written expression is commendable and contributes to clear and coherent communication.

Level 4

Student work and Self-reflection Sheet show solid knowledge of the scientific concepts presented. The student uses relevant terms appropriately and provides evidence of solid growth in understanding of scientific concepts through comparison of original and revised samples of work. There is ample evidence that the entry has been revisited and improved to reflect newly-gained knowledge, skills, and increased depth of understanding. Relevant connections are made with other scientific concepts and real-world situations. All major aspects of the tasks are complete. Written expression is good and contributes to coherent and effective communication.

Level 3

Student work and Self-reflection Sheet show basic knowledge of the scientific concepts presented. The student may use terms appropriately and provides evidence of some growth in understanding of scientific concepts through comparison of original and revised samples of work. There is some evidence that the entry has been revisited and improved to reflect newly-gained knowledge, skills, and increased depth of understanding. Some connections are made with other scientific concepts or real-world situations. Most aspects of the tasks are complete. Written expression provides basic communication.

Level 2

Student work and Self-reflection Sheet show limited knowledge of the scientific concepts presented. The student may use terms inappropriately and provides little evidence of growth in understanding of scientific concepts. Student work may not include original and revised samples of work. There is limited evidence that the entry has been revisited and it may not have been improved to reflect any newly-gained knowledge, skills, and increased depth of understanding. Limited connections are made with other scientific concepts or real-world situations. Tasks are largely incomplete. Written expression is flawed and contributes to limited communication.

Level 1

Student work and Self-reflection Sheet show minimal knowledge of any scientific concept. The student may use terms incorrectly and provides no evidence of growth in understanding of scientific concepts. Student work may not include original and revised samples of work. There may not be evidence that the entry has been revisited and it may not have been improved to reflect any newly-gained knowledge, skills, or increased depth of understanding. Connections may not be made with other scientific concepts or real-world situations. Tasks are mostly incomplete. Written expression is very flawed and ineffective.
