Annotation for example 2-point response: The student shows partial understanding of gathering applicable information and organizing information in a clear and systematic manner by writing a description of the speed of the bus throughout some of the trip that includes the length of time to reach Midville as 45 minutes, the speed of the bus remaining at 60 mph between 15 and 30 minutes, the speed of the bus going down to 40 mph between 30 and 45 minutes and the speed limit in Midville as 40 mph. Writing the bus keeps going 60 (mph) does not identify a time frame and does not mention that the 60 mph remains constant and like 55 (mph) is neither the top speed nor within the acceptable interval for the average speed.

A 2-point response: The student shows understanding of how to do multiple step computations in a real-world context by doing the following: explains or shows how to correctly calculate the cost for driving indicates that driving would be more expensive or that flying would be less expensive. Example: ($29/day)(3 days) = $87 for car rental ($0.19/mi)(1970 mi) = $374.30 for mileage $87 + $347.30 = $461.30 cost to drive Driving is more expensive. Note: Rounding or estimation is acceptable. Also, allow round-trip calculations: $800 for flying, $748.60 + $174 for driving.

The student shows understanding of organizing relevant information and applying procedures to construct a solution by providing 1) all relevant information (15 games played to date, 25 games left to play, 60% is the goal, and 10 games already won), 2) all procedures with one computation error (15 + 25 = 30 (error), 60% of 30 = 18, and 18 - 10 = 8), and 3) a solution of 8, which is a direct result of the computation error. This response earns two points.
