A. Provide several sentences about your learning in science this year. Be specific. These should be things that you would like quoted as a part of report card comments about you.
I think my learniing is increasing steadily. In the beginning of the year, I knew nothing about motion. I had never even thought about it. But now I know incredibly more, if you compare it to the time limits. I know what speed is- distance over time. I know what force is- it is the cause to accerrelation, change invelocity and motion. I know veloccity is adding direction to speed. Also, accerelation has three parts to it- speeding up, speeding down and changing direction. According to the time constrains, I think I have learned a lot.
B. How are you making sure your assessment project is complete and that it meets the criteria (standards). Be specific.
I will refer back to the science summative document , and check if I have all the standards in my product. I will check off a standard if I have explained it completely annd properly. Then I will work on the remaining standards.
C. What would you do differently in your assessment project if you were to start over? Explain.
Brainstorm what could be some possible variables that could affect my data, such as the floor. Then see what can be done so it doesn’t affect my project.
D. What would help you become better at planning and implementing your own independent investigation?
Putting deadlines for parts of the investagation. Such as, Brainstorming for the first class, finishing my data by the 1st half of the third class, starting the making of my product by the 2nd half of the third class, submitting the final product before the fourth class.
E. How important is it to you to become good at independent investigation and thinking?” Explain.
I think this is an important part of science that I still have to experience more. I usually prefer to work ith a partner because it helps get accurate data and different points of view. But independent investigation is essential because, you will not always have a partner to help you. At one point of an assessment, you have to do by yourself, when you explain your thinking and make your product. I think I have experience with this part of the investigation. But I don’t have experience with brainstorming or gathering data by myself.
