Science Fair Judging Rubric Category: ______________ Judging Form: The North Region Elementary Science Fair will be using the appended judging form. This form has been modified for Pre-K through 2nd class projects. CATEGORIES: The following will be the categories for the Pre-K through 5th grade projects in this year’s North Region Science Fair: (These are the categories which have been consolidated.) Botany Chemistry Earth/Space/Environmental Sciences Physics/Mathematics Zoology/Behavioral/Social Sciences Experimental Points Components Awarded (1 to 10) 1. Problem with Variable Problem and Objectives Clearly stated in a question format. Stated All relevant objectives identified. 2. Hypothesis Stated Hypothesis is directly related to the problem. Hypothesis states what the student “thinks” will happen. 3. Materials Stated All materials used are listed. Specific quantities stated, if applicable. 4. Procedure Stated Steps are logical and in sequential order. The experiment was set up to be replicated for reliability. 5. Results Stated Results are organized with a table, chart or graph. Shows student conducted some form of measurement (standard, non-standard or rating scale) Results correspond to original entries in log. 6. Conclusion Stated Conclusion answers the problem and takes hypothesis into consideration Conclusion consistent with results (valid inference) Conclusion demonstrates what student learned 7. Bibliography Posted Appropriate Format with at least 3 resources Uses Current Resources Uses different types of sources 8. Log Present Regular entries All elements of the project present in log. (Problem, Hypothesis, Materials, Procedure, Results, Conclusion and Bibliography) 9. Free Standing Backdrop Presentation Reflects Student Work and is not purchased or Present done by adults. Logical Sequence to Organization 10. Oral Presentation: Students understand all aspects of project. Students Present Presentation coherent. All members participate Science Fair Judging Rubric Category: ______________ Other Points Worth Noting: 3rd Graders will continue to participate in the interview process.
