18 Reflections Spaghetti and Marshmallow Circle Map Collaboration Brainstorm all the skills used for completing this mission? How did you develop those skills? Sports Page 3

19 Grading Policy On Report Card Status Report Scale Proficiency Level Descriptors AME = Meets with Excellence Demonstrates excellent achievement of the targeted benchmarks. BMP = Meets Proficiency Demonstrates acceptable achievement of the targeted benchmarks. CDP = Developing Proficiency Is approaching acceptable achievement of the targeted benchmarks. FWB = Well Below Proficiency Does not demonstrate acceptable achievement of the targeted benchmarks, or provides no evidence. Page 2

20 ItemNot MetDeveloping ProficiencyMeet ProficiencyMeets with Excellence Model (Paper Tower) Model is incompleteModel is completed but construction appears shaky Model is completed and help up through testing Model is completed on time and exhibits strong construction Height (How tall the paper tower is)  Less than 2 feet  3-5 feet  6-8 feet  10+ feet Stability (How sturdy the paper tower is)  Does not withstand fan speed of 1 for 10 or more seconds  Withstand fan speed of 1 for 10 or more seconds  Withstand fan speed of 1 for or more seconds  Withstand fan speed of 1 for 21 or more seconds Innovation (degree to which the team ’ s solution makes life better by improving existing options, developing a new application of existing ideas, or solving the problem in a completely new way)  Existing solution/application  Solution/applicatio n contains some original element's)  Original solution/application  Original solution/application with potential to add significant value Implementation (Consideration of factors for implementation (cost, ease of manufacturing, etc.))  Minimal factors considered  Some factors considered  Factors well considered, some question about proposed solution  Factors well considered and feasible solution proposed Collaboration (students need to come up with this rubric)    
