Curricular Requirements Scoring Components

The curricular requirements are the core elements of the course. Your syllabus must provide clear evidence that each requirement is fully addressed in your course. Some curricular requirements consist of complex, multipart statements. These particular requirements are broken down into their component parts and restated as “scoring components. ” Reviewers will look for evidence that each scoring component is included in your course. These are the evaluation criteria that describe the level and type of evidence required to satisfy each scoring component. These ensure that certain terms or expressions within the curricular requirement or scoring component that may have multiple meanings are clearly defined. For each scoring component, three separate samples of evidence are provided. These statements provide clear descriptions of what acceptable evidence should look like.

Scientific Argumentation: Students are given a scenario such as: two tubes of different length, open at one end only, are placed in front of a speaker set to a specific low frequency. At this low frequency neither tube resonates. As the frequency increases, one tube resonates. At higher frequencies, it is possible for both tubes to resonate. Students are asked to work in groups and provide an argument, with supporting diagrams/models and/or equations, to justify what is happening in the scenario above. Each group will share their justifications and the class will provide peer critique of their claims and supporting evidence.
