Scoring Guide and Sample Student Work Select a score point in the table below to view the sample student response.

The student response demonstrates an exemplary understanding of the Ratio and Proportional concepts involved in recognizing and representing proportional relationships between quantities. The student finds the unit rate on a graph and writes an equation to represent the proportional relationship represented by the graph.

The student response demonstrates a good understanding of the Ratio and Proportional concepts involved in recognizing and representing proportional relationships between quantities. As a result the response merits 3 points.

The student response demonstrates a fair understanding of the Ratio and Proportionality concepts involved in recognizing and representing proportional relationships between quantities. While some aspects of the task are completed correctly, others are not. The mixed evidence provided by the student merits 2 points.

The student response demonstrates a minimal understanding of the Ratio and Proportionality concepts involved in recognizing and representing proportional relationships between quantities.

The student response contains insufficient evidence of an understanding of the Ratio and Proportionality concepts involved in recognizing and representing proportional relationships between quantities to merit any points.
