Rubric suitable for short-answer, formative assignments that address a task on a scientific topic. Use this rubric when asking students to directly, but briefly, defend a claim about or explain a scientific topic.
Consider using the Science short answer QuickMark set with this rubric. These drag-and-drop comments were tailor-made by veteran educators to give actionable, formative feedback directly to students. While they were explicitly aligned to this particular rubric, you can edit or add your own content to any QuickMark.
This rubric is available and ready to use in your Feedback Studio account. However, if you would like to customize its criteria, you can "Duplicate this rubric" in your Feedback Studio account and then edit the rubric as needed. Or, you can download this .rbc file and then import to your account to begin editing the content.
