Chapter 09 Challenge Project

Making the Grade

You will be making and grading your own test.  Do you want to write a math test? a science test? a history test? or a test about your favorite sport?  Decide on the subject for you test and the number of questions, then write your test and answer key.

Next, make a grading sheet showing the number wrong, fraction correct, decimal grade and percent grade.  The sheet should include all possible test results.  See example below



Number Wrong

Fraction Correct

Decimal

Percent

0

               20/20

1.00

100%

1

            19/20

0.95

95%

2

        18/20 = 9/10

0.90

90%

 

Ask at least five people to take your test.  Record the time in minutes it takes each person to complete the test.  Create a results page for each test-taker.  The results page

should include:

·        the number of problems wrong

·        the faction of the problems correct

·        the grade as a decimal

·        the grade as a percent

·        the time it took to complete the test written as a decimal part of an hour

·        order the test results from least to greatest

Write a summary of your project.  Include some of the following in your summary:

·        How did you determine the points for your test?

·        How did you change the fractions to decimals?

·        Were all of you decimal grades exact amounts?

·        Did you round any of the grades?

·        What did you learn during this project?
