a) Interpreting Problem Statement
Correctly identified all aspects of the problem
One minor misunderstanding
One major or two minor misunderstandings
More than one each (major and minor)
(15 pts) (10-14 pts) (4-9 pts) (0-3 pts) b) Geometric
Similarity Model Correctly identified all relationships in the model
One wrong relationship
More than one wrong relationship
No geometric similarity argument
(15 pts) (10-14 pts) (4-9 pts) (0-3 pts) c) Model fitting Correctly found
Close (within 10%) Used linear regression instead of regression through origin
Unclear how estimate was made
(15 pts) (10-14 pts) (4-9 pts) (0-3 pts) c) Model analysis Correctly used
“proportionality graphs” to choose which model was best supported by data
Some confusion about what to look for in proportionality graphs
Much confusion about what to look for in proportionality graphs; or used wrong graphs
No interpretation of proportionality graphs
(15 pts) (10-14 pts) (4-9 pts) (0-3 pts)
d) Grammar and Spelling
No more than two errors.
No more than 5 errors No more than 10 errors Over 10 errors
(10 pts) (7-9 pts) (5-7 pts) (0-4 pts) e) Organization and
Clarity Very easy to understand; smooth transitions; good organization of thoughts
Easy to understand, but some transitions very rough. Good organization of thoughts
Somewhat hard to understand
Very difficult to understand
(10 pts) (7-9 pts) (5-7 pts) (0-4 pts) f) Professional
appearance Quality document – ready to give to the boss’s boss!
A good draft, but some items need to be cleaned up.
Rough draft – some work needed (e.g. graphs/tables need to be merged in with text).
Very rough – a lot of work needed.
(10 pts) (7-9 pts) (5-7 pts) (0-4 pts) g) Summary of Key
Points Succinct, but covered all key points of problem and analysis (incl. model assumptios)
Too little info (left out one key point) or too much (took too much time with secondary items)
Omitted 2-3 key points, or included key points not covered in written report
Does not effectively summarize major findings of the written report.
