Assessment Plan

Choose an interim product that involves all the disciplines or choose two that would include all the disciplines. Describe the product(s). Explain the assessment protocol. Write it so another group can "see" how you will grade and can use your ideas.

How will you score the:


Process (include HofM)


Be sure your explanation includes how individuals and groups will receive scores. Which is worth more? Will it matter what score they receive in a different discipline?



Cyberbridge Posterboard Guidelines

* The posterboard is a collaboration with science, math, and technology classes. Therefore, a grade will be given in each class for the portion due for that class.

* You must title your poster. No Title, No Grade in any class.

* You will peer edit storyboards before the final due date.

* Students will be creating the grading rubric to include accuracy of information, appropriate representation of data, and quality of overall project (sound, picture quality, etc..)

* Not all storyboards will be used for community display. Therefore, we will have a competition to determine which boards will be used.

Ms. Kimball’s Med-Chem class:

- create a representation of one type of pathogen/toxin

- graphical representation of the concentration of chemicals in a given water sample

- written abstract

- description of disease caused the pathogen/toxin

- one thing people can do to help

Ms. Witzel’s Intermediate Algebra class:

- probability of occurrence of diseases chart (graded for accuracy of information and picking an appropriate representation).

- logarithmic representation of acids and bases

- exponential graph to represent growth of bacteria

Ms. Barroso’s Multimedia productions class:

- video tape student poster presentations

- video poduction

- video editing

- quality of overall project

- sound

- quality of picture

- scivee flow


Assessment Plan

Dream Home Project: Students will design a home using the different shapes learned in the geometry class. Students will calculate the area and perimeter of each room in their house. Students will use google sketchup to create a digital design of their house from their rough draft.

How will you score the:


-Design (tech class): An exemplary product will have a complete design done on sketchup with all required rooms and shapes.

-Calculations (math class): An exemplary product will have all required shapes and the correct calculations for each room.

Process (include HofM):

-Creating, Imagining, Innovating: Students have created a unique house that is personalized to their living situation and interest.

-Applying Past Knowledge: Student house resembles, as close as can be reasonably expected within the constraints of the project, a home that would be built in real life.


-All Required Shapes are included

-All calculations are correct

-Design is created digitally using google sketchup

This is an individual project, so each student will be designing their own house. The student may, and should, work together, but all grades are individual. The grade in the math class will reflect the completeness and correctness of the calculations. The grade in the tech class will reflect the use of google sketchup to create a diagram.


Assessment: Science Lab Videos

Students will create videos throughout the year of the laboratory work in order to incorporate the skill of using video, uploading and using SciVee for display. This leads up to the creation of a SciFi movie at the end of the year.

Assignment: Students create a 2 minute video summary of their lab work.

Grading Rubric: (3= Excellent, 2= Good, 1= Needs Improvement)

Are you and the lab equipment visible? 3 2 1

Can we hear you? 3 2 1

Is your video within the 2 minute limit? 3 2 1

Did you edit your video? 3 2 1

Did you narrate where appropriate for explanation? 3 2 1

Did you include music? 3 2 1

Did you use advanced editing? 3 2 1

At the beginning of the year, we will only look at a couple components of the rubric, but by the end of the year, we expect students to be able to achieve a 3 in all components.

The video grade will be incorporated with the lab report grade (separate rubric). The lab report rubric includes a section on parts of Grammar. If students fail that section, the lab report will be sent to the English teacher for more support in bringing the student's grade up in that area. The math teacher will teach data displays, which directly relates to how students will display their data in the lab report. Habits of mind are included into Citizenship grades.


Describe the Product: Science Festival Exhibition

Station 1: Go on a shopping spree!

1. Pick 3 campus food items that they would normally pick out/ buy from a campus food cart.

2. Write these 3 items down on a template:

Station 2: SOH students inform the audience on how to correctly read a food label (Serving Size, Calories, Daily Value, Total

Fat, Saturated Fat, Sodium, Total Carbohydrates, Dietary Fiber, Proteins, Vitamins and Minerals.) What items they

need to limit, get enough of, etc.

Station 3: Student created PowerPoint jeopardy game on what they learned in Station 2.

-Get question correct, they will get a coupon to redeem a healthy products from Pepsi Co in station 5. They can play

again if they didn’t get question right

Station 4: Analysis

Have SOH students guide audiences through the analysis of the food template.

Station 5: Check out stand:

Redeem their coupon and continue learning about healthy food choices by scanning items and seeing nutritional facts

appear on computer screen.

Pass out fliers/brochures and stickers on healthy food choices.


Formative: Mr. Ortiz: Posters, Essays, speaking skills, Powerpoint Presentations, Cookbook, Timeline

Ms. Stretcher: Posters, Jeopardy game, Powerpoint Presentations, Cookbook

Ms. Sandoval: Labs, Jeopardy game, PowerPoint presentations, Cookbook, formal lab report videos, posters

Summative: -Student-evaluated (Student created rubrics, group observation checklist)

-Graduate Students will have a rubric to grade the exhibition participants.


Our common assessment partway through the project will be presentations. Students will do presentations in each class. Some of these will contain material from other classes. Each discipline will do a multi-media presentation.

See Rubric --attached

Students will be graded individually and by group. Students will grade each other, grade themselves and be graded by the teacher using the same rubric. We will not be able to use this as one project across disciplines, because we do not share students. Some students will be able to use science content in their math presentation or make a presentation in journalism that involves all of their courses.

The collaborative work of putting together and delivering a presentaion incorporates all of our habits of mind. Students must work together, problem solve, be diligent, be flexible, compromise and stick to a schedule to produce a product on time. These will be part of the grade that they give themselves and classmates.
