    Conventional Assessment - Students should be able to define temperature, wind speed, and atmospheric (barometric) pressure and describe how they are measured using numerical examples. 

    Authentic Assessment - Students should be able to find meteorological data on the Internet and use it to describe a location and compare its weather to different locations. 

    Each student work should be scored holistically as follows: 

    • Strong Indication of Competence: The student's work is complete with thoughtful answers to questions. Work clearly indicates that the student understands the definitions of temperature, wind speed, and atmospheric pressure,  the various processes of determining how they are measured, and can determine the reasonableness of results; i.e. if the weather measure under investigation "makes sense" for the location where it was measured.
    • Weak Indication of Competence: The student's work is complete but there is little obvious work beyond the required "fill in the blanks." Student does not use complete sentences or work suggests that it has been done by team-mates. Student understands the various weather concepts, but does not know how each is found, nor understands if the result is reasonable.
    • No Indication of Competence: The student's work is incomplete suggesting that little effort was made.
