Spring Lab Grading Name: _______________ Peer Checkers: ______________________
PEER FEEDBACK: TASK-LEVEL (PRODUCT)
You need to:
- Check your friend's work and look carefully at the descriptors.
- Check no more than three items from each list below.
- These are things that need to be improved (NOT things that have been done well).
- After 5 minutes, swap with another friend for peer-checking.
- When you get your paper back, check it, add your own notes and turn it in to MrT. Grades come later.
- Titles (graphs, tables) e.g. "Graph 1: xxxxxxx"
- Titles must be descriptive and useful
- Units, uncertainties, labels
- Justify the uncertainty of the results
- Include qualitative observations
- Data processing: calculation & showing working
- Calculating weight
- Calculating %error
- Make graph larger and/or clearer
- Describe patterns, trends, relationships
- Linear, proportional relationship between weight and extension
- Explain the forces that are acting on the spring as it is stretched away from equilibrium
- Hooke's Law needs to be explained more clearly
Criterion B (Communication)
- Use scientific terminology correctly
- Make sure you cite sources in-text
- Make sure you use full, complete APA referencing at the end.
SELF-GENERATED FEEDBACK This is to be completed by the student who did the work
What strategies might help you make the improvement(s) suggested?
- Improve organisation of work: neatness, identification of important elements, completion.
- Break task into yet-smaller stages. Use the provided checklists or make your own.
- Learn shortcuts/ methods for: consistent decimals, scientific notation, equations on graphs
- Go visual: focus on quality of prediction & final graphs and talk (write) about these for inspiration.
- Ask “why?” more often. Explanation is a sequence of why-questions.
How can monitoring of your own progress allow you to complete these tasks more effectively?
- Self-assess at early stages and often, using the rubrics/ checklists
- Ensure instructions are clear and seek guidance where needed
- Look for opportunities to improve & extend your work: “good enough” is never good enough.
- Discuss this assessment with MrT
