# Quiz/Test Grading Guide – Book 2

View all additional resources for Book 2.

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 361 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 1

Each problem is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 2

Problem 4 is worth 10 points; all other problems are worth 9 points.

## Quiz 3

Problem 2 is worth 16 points (8 points for setting up the problem correctly, and 8 points for doing the math correctly). All other problems are worth 14 points.

## Quiz 4

All problems are worth 10 points. The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 5

All problems except problem 2 are worth 11 points. Problem 2 is worth 12 points (9 for solving for w, and 3 for remembering to swap the sides so the w is on the left).

## Quiz 6

All problems are worth 12.5 points. The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 7

All problems except for problem 9 are worth 11 points. Problem 9 is worth 12 points.

## Quiz 8

All problems except for problem 1 are worth 14 points. Problem 1 is worth 16 points (8 for writing down the situation correctly using parentheses, and 8 for solving it correctly).

## Quiz 9

All problems are worth 8.3333 points.

## Quiz 10

In general, give a 90 or above if the analysis shows thorough understanding of how to interpret statistics (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 statistics 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

## Quiz 11

Each problem is worth 12.5 points. The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 12

Each problem is worth 10 points.

## Quiz 13

Each problem except problem 5 is worth 7.6 points; problem 5 is worth 8.8 points (partial credit can be given for solving the math correctly even if the graph was not done correctly). The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 14

Each problem except 2a, 2b, and 2c is worth 10.78 points; 2a, 2b, and 2c are worth 11.77 points (8 points can be given for setting up the problems correctly, and the remaining 3.77 for solving the problems correctly). The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 15

Each problem is worth 9.091 points. The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 16

Each problem is worth 10 points. On problems 2a-4, partial credit can be given for correctly setting up the problem. The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Quiz 17

Each problem except problem 4 is worth 10 points; problem 4 is worth 20 points (10 points for correctly setting up the problem, and 10 points for doing the math correctly).

## Quiz 18

Each problem except 3b is worth 11 points. Problem 3b is worth 12 points (6 for identifying if the sequence had a common difference/ratio/neither correctly, and 6 for listing the correct ratio).

## Quiz 19

Each problem is worth 12.5 points. The bonus question is worth 5 points.

## Test 1

Each problem is worth 6.25 points. On problems 1f-1h, give 4 points for correctly setting up the problem and the remaining 2.25 for doing the math correctly.

## Test 2

Each problem in section 1 is worth 8 points (4 points for correctly setting up the problem, and 4 points for doing the math correctly); each problem in section 2 and 3 is worth 4 points.

## Test 3

Each problem is worth 5.56 points. Note that on the word problems, partial credit can be given if the problem was set up correctly but a math error occurred.

## Test 4

Problems in sections 3 and 5 are worth 5.2 points each (3 for correctly setting up the problem, and 2.2 for doing the math correctly); all other problems are worth 4 points.

## Test 5

The end-of-the-year project is worth 40% of the grade (so 40 points total). A perfect project would get all 40 points; points should be deducted from there for math errors or incompleteness of the project. All problems on the test are worth 2 points, with the exception of problem 3a, which is worth 4 points (partial credit can be given).
