Hello there fellow brains! As promised, I’m uploading my SBG policy for this year.

Credit where credit is due… The greater structure and many details of this document where taken from Frank Noschese’s immensely useful files. Other details where appropriated from Sam Shah’s wonderfully ebullient SBG handout.

Really, the only new ground here is, (1) the fact that I’m using projects for an equal portion of the grade as my SBG-inspired quizzes, and (2) that I adopted the “Consortium” language that our school uses on its rubrics.

Here it is, apple-c apple-v’d for your viewing pleasure [after the break]

For each learning goal and unit of study, you will be scored using the following scale:

** **

**4 = Outstanding. **Indicators include:

- Selects appropriate and efficient strategies to solve problems
- Executes mathematical procedures accurately
- Justifies all mathematical statements in an efficient and accurate manner
- Uses efficient mathematical reasoning and draws valid conclusions
- Uses mathematical terminology and notation appropriately
- Eloquently communicates process and solution
- Finds connections within the materal and to real-world situations
- Uses models appropriately to understand the problem or situation

**3.5 = Good. **Your work is nearly outstanding, but includes minor (non-fatal) computational errors or slight notational errors.

**3 = Proficient. **Indicators include:** **

- Selects appropriate but possibly inefficient strategies to solve problems
- Work includes minor (non-fatal) computational errors
- Justifies all mathematical statements
- Uses appropriate reasoning to draw conclusions
- Limited appropriate use of mathematical language and notation
- Explains, with some difficulty, their process and solution

**2 = Developing. **Indicators include:** **

- Attempts mathematical strategies to solve problems
- Work includes minor computational or conceptual errors
- Justifies most but not all mathematical statements
- Evidence of confused reasoning or misunderstanding of the problem
- Limited appropriate use of mathematical language and notation
- Limited ability to make connections to other topics
- Limited use of appropriate models or representations

** **

**1 = Beginning. **Indicators include:** **

- Selects an inappropriate strategy
- Makes major conceptual or serious (fatal) computational errors
- Does not justify most of the mathematical statements
- Does not use mathematical reasoning
- Little, no use, or inappropriate use of mathematical language and notation
- Disorganized and unclear work
- No attempt to make connections to other topics
- Does not appropriately use a model or representation

**0 = You left the problem blank **

This is lovely. I am going to steal from this next year. Thank you for sharing.

I’m totally stealing this for next year! Thanks so much for sharing it!
