Description
Sample Activity
4.0
In addition to achieving level 3.0 content, the student makes indepth inferences and applications that go beyond what was taught
Write an equation of a parabola that has two xintercepts and a minimum vertex.
Create a rational equation given a situation or set or data
3.5
In addition to Score 3.0 performance, the student demonstrates indepth inferences and applications regarding the more complex content with partial success.
3.0
Can create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems (linear only)
The student exhibits no major errors or omissions.
An online music club sells compact discs for $13.95 each plus $1.95 shipping and handling per order. Maria’s total bill was $85.65. Create an equation to model this situation. Solve your equation to determine how many compact discs were sold.
Suppose you are working for a trucking company. Your job is to load a truck with at least 5000 lb of freight. You have loaded 2395 lb of freight, but you have to unload 50 lb that was loaded by mistake. Write and solve an inequality to find how many more pounds you need to load.

The student demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) and partial knowledge of the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
2.0
There are no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes as the student:
recognizes and recalls specific terminology, such as: (A.SSE.1)
linear
correctly identifies whether the relationship is linear or exponential.
writes the general equations for linear and exponential functions.
pick out relevant information in a contextual problem.
However, the student exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes.

1.5
The student demonstrates partial knowledge of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) but exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and procedures (Score 3.0 content).
1.0
With help, a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes and some of the more complex ideas and processes.

0.5
With help, the student demonstrates a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) but not the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
