Assessment with planets and orbits

4 (A)

participated fully in discussion; spoke when appropriate; asked valid questions; volunteered good answers; performed in all the activities.

 

stayed on task and completed the entire lesson; followed directions; answers were mostly correct; ordered and named the planets; knows 9/10 planetary facts.

 

drew picture which shows 2 or more  features of a planet; named the planet and its position from the sun; wrote 2 facts about the planet; demonstrated good mechanics. Students completed the assessment, followed all directions, and answered the questions correctly.

3 (B)

tried to participate in discussion; usually asked good questions or volunteered valid responses; performed in nearly all the activities.

 

stayed on task almost the entire time; followed most of the directions; attempted to order and name the planets, though some errors are present; knows 8/10 planetary facts. attempted to draw a picture which shows 2 features of a planet; named the planet and its position from the sun; wrote 2 facts about the planet; mechanics in need of assistance. Students completed the assessment, followed all directions, and answered 8/10 questions correctly.

2 (C)

participated sometimes in activities and discussion; answered when teacher solicited response;

 

 

strayed from task once in awhile; followed some directions; attempted to order and name the planets, though additional application is needed; knows 6-7/10 planetary facts.

 

attempted to draw a picture which shows at least one feature of the planet; named the planet and found its position from the sun; wrote 1 fact about the planet; mechanics in need of assistance. Students attempted to complete the assessment and followed most of the directions;  students answered 7/10 questions correctly.

1- 0 (D/F)

seldom participated in activities or discussion; gave little or no response when solicited by teacher; volunteered few or no answers; exhibited disruptive behavior.

 

Strayed frequently from task; little or no attempt to complete the lesson; little or no attempt to follow directions; did not order and name the planets correctly or has several errors; knows few planetary facts.   little or no attempt to draw a picture which shows features of the planet; little or no attempt to name the planet and find its position from the sun; little or no attempt to write facts about the planet; not enough writing to judge mechanics. Little or no attempt to complete the assessment; little or no attempt to follow the directions; students answered 6/10 or less questions correctly.
