question.

1-2

I have not discussed any of the


questions for paragraph 3.

I have not attempted to discuss any


difficulties I had or that my group had.

Criterion D: Scientific Inquiry

3-4

Purpose of investigation is recognized but provides an underdeveloped explanation/prediction. Acknowledges some variables and attempts to describe how to manipulate them. Method suggested is partially complete and, with guidance, includes appropriate materials/equipment. Evaluation is partially developed.

I have a hypothesis using Ifthen because My hypothesis is somewhat linked to my question. I have attempted to discuss 2 of the questions for paragraph 3. I have attempted to discuss difficulties I had or that my group had.

5-6

Purpose of investigation is recognized and an attempt was made to articulate the research question. A simple hypothesis is formed and explained using scientific reasoning. Relevant variables are identified along with attempted explanations of how to manipulate them. With guidance, comments are made regarding reliability or validity of methods.

I have an appropriate hypothesis using Ifthen because My hypothesis is appropriately linked to my question. I have thoroughly discussed at least 2 of the questions for paragraph 3. I have clearly discussed any difficulties I had or that my group had.
