Standard 2: Science Inquiry

SCI-07.2.01 Communicate the results of scientific investigations using an appropriate format (e.g., journals, lab reports, diagrams, presentations, discussions)

7.2a -- Explain the components of a scientific investigation

7.2b -- Use appropriate tools and techniques to gather and analyze data

## Student Learning Targets:

### Knowledge Targets

• I can identify the components of a scientific investigation (ex. hypothesis, observation, data collection, data interpretation, communication of results, replicable).

### Reasoning Targets

• I can explain the components of a scientific investigation (ex. hypothesis, observation, data collection, data interpretation, communication of results, replicable).

### Skills Domain (Performance) Targets

• I can use appropriate tools to gather and analyze data.
• I can use appropriate techniques to gather and analyze data.

## Proficiency Scale

 Score Description Sample Activity 4.0 The student demonstrates in-depth inferences and applications regarding more complex material that go beyond end of instruction expectations. -Done independently and consistently, connects to real world or other content areas 3.5 The student demonstrates in-depth inferences and applications regarding the more complex content with partial success. 3.0 “The Standard.” The student demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding any of the information and processes that were end of instruction expectations. - 2.5 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 The student demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content). - 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 A partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes and some of the more complex ideas and processes, or received help. - 0.5 Little or no understanding of the 2.0 or 3.0 content.
