Scoring Guide
3 Points:
The KWL chart has 3 questions in the What I Want to Know. The What I learned Portion contains a total of 5 pieces of information.
This should be a combination of answers from What I Want to Know and other facts. The ratio depends on the questions asked and
if they where answered in the chapter. The information discussed is focused on concepts and larger pieces of information.

2 Points:
The KWL chart is short a question in the What I Want to Know section or short a fact or in the What I Learned section. Questions
asked in the What I Want to Know were answered in the text but was not answered in the What I Learned. The information
discussed may talk about larger ideas, but is centered around simple facts such as dates or names.

1 Point:
The KWL chart is missing multiple questions or facts. The What I Learned section is focused on irrelevant or minor details.

0 Points:
Either the Want to Know or What I Learned Section is left blank. What is written on the chart is totally irrelevant to the focus of the
text.
