What are the Expectations of the Engineering Design Process Rubric?

(Include examples of each in your documentation log)

Ask

Fully restate the problem and define the criteria for a solution.

Imagine

Consider the strengths and weaknesses of more than one idea before creating a plan.

Plan

Use prior knowledge and the stated criteria to guide a complete design. This should include a written plan that has a diagram and materials list.

Create

Use the plan as a blueprint to create an idea, prototype or model.

Test

Test and evaluate the prototype/idea using the established criteria. Include any problems or possible improvements and the result of your test in the documentation log.

Improve

Brainstorm and make improvements to the prototype/idea.

3: Exceeds Standard

2: Meets Standard

1: Working Toward Standard

0: Performing Below Standard

Ask: I can define a specific, solvable problem and identify its constraints.

Group exceeds expectations by rephrasing the task/challenge, extending the problem, and/or explaining its significance.

Group restates the task/challenge, explains what they know about the engagement/challenge, and what the limits or controls of the task are.

Group only restates the task/challenge.

Group does not restate the task/challenge.

Imagine: I can identify possible solutions to a design problem by considering its criteria and constraints including relevant scientific principles and environmental impact.

Group exceeds expectations by explaining and incorporating the best elements from multiple ideas.

Group brainstorms at least 2 different ideas on how to accomplish the task/challenge and provides the pros and cons of each idea. The group includes research on each idea.

Group brainstorms at least 1 different ideas on how to accomplish the task/challenge and provides the pros and cons of each idea. The group includes research on the idea.

The group only considers the strengths and weaknesses of one topic and does not do any extra research.

Plan: I can use a systematic process to evaluate multiple possible solutions to a problem.

The group exceeds expectations by including very specific details or exact measurements in their plan.

Group plans out what they are going to do by choosing one of their brainstormed ideas. The group creates a diagram, step by step plan of attack, and/or a material list.

The group develops a general plan and a rough diagram. Specific plans and details are not included.

A plan or diagram was not developed.

Create: I can design, create, and test a prototype or model of my solution.

Multiple videos, pictures, or other visual representations were created to show the creations/programs/games and test runs.

A video and picture, or other visual representation were created to show the creations/program and test runs.

No video or picture of the prototype and the test runs were taken.

No evidence that a prototype was not created was included.

Test: I can analyze and compare data from tests of my prototype or model and existing research.

Group exceeds expectations by identifying flaws or biases in testing procedures or by creating alternative testing procedures.

Group tests and evaluates the prototype or game plan. Group explains the results of the test and makes note of any problems. Make sure to answer the learning launcher questions. 

Group attempts to test the prototype or game plan but no further information is provided.

Group did not test the prototype or game plan.

Improve: I can improve my prototype or model based on the results of my tests and research.

The group exceeds expectations by making multiple improvements or goes beyond the challenge criteria.

Groups make changes to improve the prototype and brainstorms future improvements.

The group does not make any improvements to the design.

Group did not attempt to make any improvements to the prototype or game plan despite not meeting the challenge criteria.
