   – Sometimes submit Probe file results
    Grading Rubric for Exams 1
• Mastering
  – M6 Correctly applied circuit laws to the
    conditions of the problem and correctly
    solved the ensuing equations. Work was
    logical and orderly.
    (100% - 95%)
  – M5 Got mostly correct results, but work
    could be better organized and documented.
    Used an inefficient method or overlooked
    an easier or simpler procedure.
    (95% - 85%)
     Grading Rubric for Exams 2

• Developing
  – D4 Mostly used appropriate solution
    procedures, but made arithmetic, algebraic
    or organizational errors.
    (85% - 60%)
  – D3 Properly used the fundamental circuit
    laws, but missed one or more key concepts
    in setting up the problem’s solution.
    (60% - 40%)
     Grading Rubric for Exams 3

• Emerging
  – E2 An earnest attempt made, but lacked
    proper use of KVL, KCL, Ohm’s Law or
    the Passive Sign Convention at significant
    stages of the problem.
    (40% to 20%)
  – E1 Did not make significant progress on
    the problem.
    (20% - 0%)
