The student states the effectiveness of science and its application in solving the problem or issue. 3–4 The student describes how science is applied and how it may be used to address a specific problem or issue in a local or global context. The student describes the effectiveness of science and its application in solving the problem or issue. The student describes the implications of the use and application of science interacting with at least one of the following factors: moral, ethical, social, economic, political, cultural and environmental. 5–6 The student explains how science is applied and how it may be used to address a specific problem or issue in a local or global context. The student discusses the effectiveness of science and its application in solving the problem or issue. The student discusses and evaluates the implications of the use and application of science interacting with at least two of the following factors: moral, ethical, social, economic, political, cultural and environmental.Criterion B: Communication in ScienceHighlight the statements that best represent your workLevel Level descriptor 0 The student does not reach a standard described by any of the descriptors below. 1–2 The student uses a limited range of scientific language correctly. The student communicates scientific information with limited effectiveness. When appropriate to the task, the student makes little attempt to document sources of information. 3–4 The student uses some scientific language correctly. The student communicates scientific information with some effectiveness. When appropriate to the task, the student partially documents sources of information. 5–6 The student uses sufficient scientific language correctly. The student communicates scientific information effectively. When appropriate to the task, the student fully documents sources of information correctly.Criterion F: Attitudes in ScienceHighlight the statements that best represent your work Level Level descriptor 0 The student does not reach a standard described by any of the descriptors below. 1–2 The student requires some guidance to work safely and some assistance when using material and equipment. The student requires some guidance to work responsibly with regards to the living and non-living environment. When working as part of a group, the student needs frequent reminders to cooperate with others. 3–4 The student requires little guidance to work safely and little assistance when using material and equipment. The student works responsibly with regards to the living and non-living environment. When working as part of a group the student cooperates with others on most occasions. 5–6 The student requires no guidance to work safely and uses material and equipment competently.
