For evaluating the short answer question 6, the following rubric will be used: *Note: These rubrics were

adapted from the Problem Solving Rubric created by National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing For the student Response is characterized by: All of the following: • The learner selects and implements relevant procedures/strategies needed to effective address this issue. • The learner considers all constraints of the problem situation. • The solution is correct. For grading purposes Question 6 Example The learner’s answer indicates s/he recognizes all of the following: 1) that the therapist had not spoken to the CC as indicated on the IR, 2) the date for the potential threat had passed with no action taken, 3) recognizes that if they contact the father, it could further upset him and be a threat to the center The learner notes all of the following: 1) that s/he would contact the CD to determine next steps, 2) talk with the therapist, 3) give the therapist appropriate feedback possibly including a written warning 4) contact the police about the threat 5) make sure someone has talked with the family or talk with the family 6) incident should be included on the MR The appropriate procedures/strategies were chosen, however the response is not entirely correct bc the learner failed to recognize one of the following: 1) the CC would need to gather additional information to determine whether the therapist had talked to the mother or father, what was said, and why the therapist hadn’t told the CC about the incident, or 2) the learner failed to recognize the CC would need to get input from the CD on what next steps to take 3) that the therapist had not spoken to the CC as indicated on the IR, 4) the date for the potential threat had passed with no action taken, 5) if they contact the father, it could further upset him and be a threat to the center 6) the learner considers some other irrelevant variable 7) the learner doesn’t give supporting information for the procedures/strategies given The appropriate procedures/strategies were chosen, however the response is not entirely correct bc one or more of the following are apparent: 1) the learner failed to recognized several of the relevant concepts listed above 2) the learner has several misconceptions of the problem itself 3) the learner doesn’t consider several relevant concepts listed above 4) the strategies weren’t carried far enough to read a solution 5) the learner fails to give information as to how s/he arrived at it

The learner selects appropriate procedures/strategies to solve this problem; however, the response/solution is not entirely correct because one of the following is apparent: • There is evidence the learner has a misconception or has failed to consider a relevant concept needed to solve the problem correctly. • The learner fails to consider a constraint of the problem situation. • The learner has considered an irrelevant variable or failed to consider a relevant variable. • The response/solution is generally correct; however, from the information provided it is not completely clear how the learner arrived at this solution. The student selects appropriate procedures/strategies to solve this problem; however, the response/solution is not correct because one or more of the following are apparent: • There is evidence that the learner has several misconceptions or has failed to consider several relevant concepts needed to solve the problem correctly. • The learner fails to consider several constraints of the problem situation. • The learner has also considered several irrelevant variables or failed to consider several relevant variables. • The learner did not carry the procedures/strategies far enough to reach a solution. • The response/solution is generally correct; however, there is no information showing how the learner arrived at this response/solution. An incomplete and/or incorrect response/solution is provided evidencing an attempt to solve the problem. In addition, one or more of the following are apparent: • The learner did consider a constraint or variable of the problem situation. • The student understands some concepts relevant to the problem task. • The student selected a totally inappropriate procedure/strategy. 1. It is blank. 2. The student response only repeats information in the problem task. 3. An incorrect solution is given and no other information is shown. 4. The solution and supportive information is totally irrelevant to the problem task.

For evaluating the short answer question #7, the following rubric will be used: *Note: This rubric was adapted from the Problem Solving Rubric created by National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing For the Student Response is characterized by: All of the following: • The learner selects and implements relevant procedures/strategies needed to effective address this issue. • The learner considers all constraints of the problem situation. • The solution is correct. For the grading purposes Question 7 Example The learner’s answer indicates s/he recognizes all of the following: 1) that the therapist will need to contact CPS, 2) that the mother will need to be contacted about the CPS report, 3) if the father is a client, a decision will have to be made as to whether he should be informed of the CPS report (notifying him may put the mom and child in further danger so should be done with caution 4) that the CD should be contacted to determine next steps, 5) that BK PC and teacher should be informed to look for signs of abuse and to assess if other comments had been made, 6) incident should be included on the MR The appropriate procedures/strategies were chosen, however the response is not entirely correct bc the learner failed to recognize one of the following: 1) that the therapist will need to contact CPS 2) that the mother will need to be contacted about the CPS report 3) that if the father is a client, a decision will have to be made as to whether he should be informed of the CPS report (notifying him may put the mom and child in further danger so should be done with caution) 4) that the CD should be contacted to determine next steps, 5) that the BK PC and teacher should be informed to look for signs of abuse and to assess if other comments had been made, 6) incident should be included on the MR 7) the learner considered some other irrelevant variable 8) you can’t tell how the learner arrived at his/her strategy by the answer given The appropriate procedures/strategies were chosen, however the response is not entirely correct bc one or more of the following are apparent: 1) the learner failed to recognized several of the relevant concepts listed above 2) the learner has several misconceptions of the problem itself 3) the learner doesn’t consider several relevant concepts listed above 4) the strategies weren’t carried far enough to read a solution 5) the learner fails to give information as to how s/he arrived at it
