Generic Scoring Guide for BAR or Single Line GRAPH, Grade 8
(10x10 grid provided with lines/spaces for labeling of axes and title, prompt designates bar or line graph to be constructed)
Four Total Points
One point for each of the following:

   Appropriate title: a statement of the relationship between the dependent and independent variables or a statement of what is being
tested
   Both axes correctly labeled, with units if appropriate
   Numbered scale with correct intervals: consistent scaling, written on the lines, with numbers that allow for the data to be plotted
   All data points correctly plotted

Construct a bar/line graph below using the information in the data table. Be sure to provide labeled axes with number scales for
your graph. Give the graph an appropriate title.

Generic Scoring Guide for DATA TABLES, Grade 8
Three Total Points
One point for each of the following:

Point 1: The row or column headings indicate what information is to be observed and recorded relative to the dependent variable (can
be a descriptive heading or the conditions to be varied may be written in).

Point 2: The row or column headings indicate what information is to be observed and recorded relative to the independent variable (can
be a descriptive heading or the conditions to be varied may be written in).

Point 3: Appropriate number of cells are provided to allow for recording data specific to the experiment (for example, multiple
trials, beginning and ending temperatures or times, etc.)
