Assessing Thinking: Grades 9-12
Assessing One's Own Work
Learners assess the quality of their argument before coming to a final conclusion.
|Considering all of the evidence and the quality of that evidence, this claim has absolutely no merit and has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be untrue.
||Although there are elements of truth in this claim, the evidence casts such considerable doubt as to the truth of this claim, that it is fairly clear that the claim is not true and/or valid.
||Circumstantial or minor evidence does seem to support this claim, but not enough to make a determination. “Reasonable doubt” exists.
||The evidence provided does support the claim, but there are still uncertainties as to whether that support really proves the claim is true. This rating is the result of a “hung jury.”
||There is a small amount of room for interpretation, but considering all of the evidence and the quality of that evidence, the claim is strongly supported and is most likely true and/or valid.
||Considering all of the evidence and the quality of that evidence, it is quite obvious that this claim is true and valid.
Learner weigh the merits of each claim and explain their reasoning.
Learners provide evidence and explanations to show that they have accomplished the following objectives for the project.
- I understand what claims and warrants are.
- I can compose a correct claim.
- I can evaluate the quality of evidence.
