## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Collision Course (Part 2) - Section 3: Closure

This Student Notebook Sample sample is a good example of why I make my scoring criteria such as the rubric before a lesson, because there are some issues that are distracting for me (dorp for drop and the fact that the lower the car on the ramp, the farther the other car travels), but the focus of the lesson was on drawing conclusions based on evidence.  This student makes a claim based on his or her evidence and uses data for support, so based on the rubric, it meets the standard.

The reason I chose to focus on the conclusion in this lesson was that we had been building up through each step of the scientific method, and up until this point, students were only gathering data.  The next step for each of them to begin analyzing that data.
