New York State guidelines give 1 to 2 points (out of a 5 point question) for a correct response with no work shown. This work could not have received 3 points or more with no supporting work. In high school, New York Regents examination rubrics hold students to this standards.
After the Do Now, students completed a notebook check consisting of 5 questions and 1 bonus question. Following the notebook check, students used rubrics as a self-assessment for their performance tasks. Rubric scoring guidelines are different for each task so students disccused point values for questions and how to determine how much credit given responses are worth.
