Drawings/Diagrams Clear, accurate diagrams are included and make the experiment easier to understand. Diagrams are labeled neatly and accurately. Diagrams are included and are labeled neatly and accurately. Diagrams are included and are labeled. Needed diagrams are missing OR are missing important labels.
Procedures Procedures are listed in clear steps. Each step is numbered and is a complete sentence. Procedures are listed in a logical order, but steps are not numbered and/or are not in complete sentences. Procedures are listed but are not in a logical order or are difficult to follow. Procedures do not accurately list the steps of the experiment.
Calculations All calculations are shown and the results are correct and labeled appropriately. Some calculations are shown and the results are correct and labeled appropriately. Some calculations are shown and the results labeled appropriately. No calculations are shown OR results are inaccurate or mislabeled.
Analysis The relationship between the variables is discussed and trends/patterns logically analyzed. Predictions are made about what might happen if part of the lab were changed or how the experimental design could be changed. The relationship between the variables is discussed and trends/patterns logically analyzed. The relationship between the variables is discussed but no patterns, trends or predictions are made based on the data. The relationship between the variables is not discussed.
Experimental Hypothesis Hypothesized relationship between the variables and the predicted results is clear and reasonable based on what has been studied. Hypothesized relationship between the variables and the predicted results is reasonable based on general knowledge and observations. Hypothesized relationship between the variables and the predicted results has been stated, but appears to be based on flawed logic. No hypothesis has been stated
