    Geometry chapter 13 test question

    In chapter 13 the lesson plans don't cover sections 13-6, 13-7, 13-8, or 13-9, but the lesson plans don't elimate any questions from the chapter test. Chapter 14 eliminates some sections and modifies the test. I assume this an omission in the plans, but it seems that problems 5, 8, 11, 12, and 16 test content covered in those omitted sections. Thanks!

    Also, is there a grading rubric for geometry like there is for algebra? I don't see one in my lesson plans.

    Dorinda,
    You make a good observation about the Ch13 test. I always black out the problems from sections we didn't cover. Sorry for the omission in the lesson plans. We should update that. I recommend you eliminate those problems from your daughter's Ch13 test.

    My usual rubric for geometry is to grade on points. 5 points for each homework, 100 for each test, 200 for the final exam. I think that averages out to about 7% for homework, 80% for tests, and 13% for final. I don't specifically weight those points anymore, and I think the results accurately reflect my students' mastery. If you prefer to weight, I would suggest 20% for homework, 60% for tests, 20% for final, which matches what you proposed in another thread. I occasionally use quizzes in geometry, but count them as homework points. I doubt you are using the quizzes since you have the daily contact with your daughter and can gauge her progress more closely.
