# Quiz/Test Grading Guide – Book 1

View all additional resources for Book 1.

Note that the main purpose of these quizzes and tests are to see if the student has learned the material. No letter or numerical grade needs to be given unless you choose to assign one. These are simply suggestions for those wanting to assign grades.

Feel free to give different weight to different problems than the suggestions here, especially if you are adapting the program. The bonus questions especially can be given more or less points at your discretion.

A few other things to keep in mind:

• There are some General Grading Notes on page 391 of the Teacher Guide (at the very front of the Answer Key). Please see them for some general guidelines.
• Partial credit can be given for a problem as appropriate. (See the General Grading Notes.)
• If students get a low grade on a quiz, consider reviewing that chapter further. Math is cumulative, so if they did not understand the concepts, they may struggle with future concepts as well.
• The suggested points here give a total of 100 points (not including bonus questions) for each Quiz/Test. These can then translate to A, B, C, D, and F depending on your grading policy. One simple method is that if a student earns 90-100 points, they would get an A; 80-89 a B; 70-79 a C; 60-69 a D; and less than that an F. You could also choose to give A+, A-, etc.; see the grading chart here.
• The word “problem” in this guide refers to an individual problem. For example, if there’s a 5a and a 5b, each of them would be considered a separate problem.

# Quiz 10

In general, give a 90 or above if the analysis shows thorough understanding of how to interpret graphs (see the questions on the quiz—students should have answered several of them or similar type of questions in their analysis, demonstrating that they understand how to interpret and question information presented in a graph); give in the 80s if only decent knowledge is shown; 70s would be for passing knowledge only; below 70 would be for someone who did not demonstrate understanding of the concepts. You can also choose to give points for how well the analysis is written, although the main point of the analysis is to see if students know how to understand and discern through graphs they encounter. Here is a typical rubric for paper grading that can help you analyze the writing itself: https://www.stetson.edu/other/writing-program/media/rubrictermpaper.pdf
