Transcript of IB Science Rubric
Criterion A: Knowing & Understanding
You should be able to know & understand what you're learning so that you can at least explain it, use it when finding solutions to other problems, and use it to make scientifically supported judgements.
If you learn how to bake a cake, you should understand the process enough that you can bake the cake and explain how to do it to someone else who wants to bake a cake. You should also be able to use the knowledge you got from learning to bake a cake to bake other things. For example, if you're gonna bake cookies, you should already know that you have to preheat the oven or put butter on the pan before you put the cookies on it, just like you have to do with cake. Lastly, you should be able to analyze and evaluate this process to understand it more on your own.
Criterion B: Inquiring & Designing
You should be able to explain a problem or question that could be tested in order to be solved or answered, make and explain a hypothesis, describe how to manipulate the variables and how to collect the data, and design the investigation.
If your cake didn't come out the way you expected, you should be able to identify whats wrong with it, explain the problem and test out how to solve it. Before you solve the issue (by experimenting/baking the cake again) you can make a hypothesis (for example, "If I add less milk to the cake, it'll be less dense") You would also be able to explain how someone could have different variables/test out the outcomes of baking the cake differently. Finally, you should be able to do/design the investigation yourself without instructions.
Criterion C: Processing & Evaluating
You should be able to present your results, interpret and explain your data, tell whether a hypothesis or method are valid or not depending on the outcome of the experiment, and explain improvements or extensions to the method.
After you're done baking your cake you should be able to explain to someone else exactly how the process of baking the cake went. You'll be able to explain a method you used, if you had a hypothesis on the outcome of the cake you'll be able to explain that as well and you can evaluate the validity of both of those things. Then, you should be able to explain any improvements or extensions to the method that have been made or that could /should be made.
Criterion D: Reflecting on the impacts of science
You should be able to explain how science is applied to addressing specific problems, discuss the implications of using science when solving problems, use scientific language effectively, give credit to any sources you used.
After baking the cake, you should also be able to reflect. You should be able to explain how you addressed any problems while baking. Next, you'll be able to use any terms that have to do with baking and use them correctly & effectively. Lastly, you should be able to give credit to information from others and/or any sources you used.
