Proposed solution to problem includes the conditions of Meets and the following:

  • Analysis with causes and effects of problem’s effect on other organisms not directly affected.
  • Proposed experiment and question to address and reduce problem

Proposed solution to problem includes the following:

  • Identification of two causes of problem
  • Identification of two solutions to problem
  • Discussion of problem’s effect on other organisms not directly affected.

Proposed solution to problem includes the following:

  • Identification of one cause of problem
  • Identification of one solution to problem
  • Discussion of problem’s effect on other organisms not directly affected is vague or does not indicate clear understanding.

Proposed solution to problem includes the following:

  • Missing, unrelated, or unclear identification of cause and effect of problem.
  • No discussion of problem’s effect on other organisms

Real-world problem:

Global warming has been found to decrease the amount of snow in arctic regions.  This causes problems for organisms with adaptations to arctic environments.  How could this be solved?

Meets Analysis Questions (Required):

  1. Describe two causes for this real-world problem of decreased snow in arctic environments.


  1.  

  1. Predict and explain two solutions to solve this real-world problem.

  1.  

Exceeds Analysis Questions:

  1. Discuss how this problem might affect organisms not directly affected by loss of snow? Use an example organism and include  a discussion of causes and effects in the explanation.

  1. Come up with  a question and a related experiment to address and reduce the problem (experiment should be a realistic and feasible way to attempt to reduce the effects of the scenario problem).
