									                                                          Unit Rubric – Earth in Space
There are three main areas of focus for our Earth in Space unit. The first area is the motion within the Solar System and the different phenomenon
that it causes. The second area is gravity, and the third is understanding the differences between the planets within our solar system. Below are the
performance expectations for these three standards. Consistent performance at the Exemplary level will earn the grade of an A, Proficient equals a B,
and Developing equals a C. Performance at or below the developing level shows a need for relearning and reassessing of the material covered in
class.

Standard                       No Evidence – 4             Emerging – 5.5                Developing – 7                Proficient – 8.5               Exemplary – 10
