Appearance, organization, completeness, thoroughness.Fully completed and streamlined. Lab report is typed and uses headings and subheadings to visually organize the material. Infomation is typed and submitted on time.Fully completed lab report is typed and uses headings and subheadings to visually organize the material.Lab report is neatly written or typed, but lacks formatting and does not visually organize the material.Lab report is handwritten, or incomplete and looks sloppy with cross-outs, multiple erasures and/or tears and creases.
4
Prior Research and Documentation of Scientific Concepts NotationSection illustrates an accurate and thorough understanding of scientific concepts underlying the lab. Information included supports experiment. Prior knowledge statements organized and associated with experiment. Information is written legibly and is though for the lab contextSection illustrates an accurate understanding of most scientific concepts underlying the lab, but lacks specific details.Section illustrates a limited understanding of scientific concepts underlying the lab, and lacks general details.Section illustrates inaccurate understanding of scientific concepts underlying the lab, or is incomplete.
5
Driving Question and HypothesisA Driving Question is stated and the hypothesized relationship between the variables and the predicted results is clear and reasonable based on what has been studied.A Driving Question is stated and the hypothesized relationship between the variables and the predicted results is reasonable based on general knowledge and observations.Hypothesized relationship between the variables and the predicted results has been stated, but lacks details aappears to be based on flawed logic.No hypothesis and/or Driving Question has been stated.
6
Experimental Design, Safety Considerations and HazardsExperimental design is a well-constructed and written description of the test you will build to match the stated hypothesis. Specifically, this section describes how & why your design will work. And identifies and potential risks or hazards in the experiment.Experimental design is adequate to test the hypothesis, but leaves some unanswered questions.Experimental design is relevant to the hypothesis, but is not a complete test.Experimental design is not relevant to the hypothesis.
7
Experiment ProcedureProcedures are listed instructions in clear steps intended for a stranger to read. Each step is numbered and is a complete sentence. Proceedures explcitly details each step with appropriate instructions and actions.Procedures are listed in a logical order, but steps are not numbered and/or are not in complete sentences. Proceedures are vague or not complete.Procedures are listed but are not in a logical order or are difficult to follow.Procedures do not accurately list the steps of the experiment.
8
Data Tables and/or GraphsAll Data must be published using data tables and graphs. Visuals are complete, no missing data points, and include the following: appropriate headings for tables and axis labels for graphs, units (if necessary). Qualitative data is specific and distinct. Data tables and/or graphs are complete, but missing data points, and are missing one of the following: appropriate headings for tables and axis labels for graphs, units (if necessary). Qualitative data is general and non-compelling. Data tables and or graphs are incomplete, 3 or more missing data points, and are missing two or more of the following: appropriate headings for tables and axis labels for graphs, units (if necessary). Qualitative data is vague and not specific. No data tables and/or graphs. Qualitative data is missing or non-descriptive.
9
ConclusionConclusion answers the Driving Question is answered is stated with justification, based on reasonable interpretation of the data.Conclusion is stated, based on reasonable interpretation of the data.Conclusion is stated, based on unreasonable interpretation of the data.No conclusion is stated.
