Chemistry 1 – Today was our third “weekly quiz.” As you are figuring out the grading of these quizzes look little different than what you are used to. Each item on the quiz is aligned to a particular Learning Goal (later on one quiz item might address multiple goals). Each response is then scored based on if you have shown mastery of the goal or are developing mastery. That is where the colors come in. Green is “good job, you have shown me you know what you are supposed to.” Yellow means “close, but you didn’t show me everything that you need to show.” Red would mean “stop, you better look at this again, you are missing some major pieces.”
In the upper right hand corner of the quiz is where you and I can keep track of your achievement levels at a quick glance. It also provides a place to see EXACTLY what you are being assessed on. You should never have to guess what you need to know. It’s all right here. Click to read more about my grading practice.
Physics 1 – Students grouped up and worked on interpreting position vs. time graphs for one objects motion. Groups were also given instructions on how to create a Motion Map for objects motion. We will work with these moving forward.
Chemistry 2 – Lab groups shared the results of their Absorbance vs. Concentration Lab and what concentration they obtained of the unknown solution. We also worked some Molarity problems from Practice set 3.
