Grading Rubrics

Round One

  1. Inquiry-Based Project (55%)

       (1) Finding your question

  • Asking a good question is the beginning of a good project. What is the question that your project is about? Is it related to the subjects of Science and Social Studies you learned at school?
  • Make sure your question is neither too difficult nor too simple for you. If your question is way too difficult, there is a high chance of failure. On the other hand, if a simple Google search can find the answer to your question, then there is probably no need for a research project.
  • Does the question relate to your daily or school life? If the question matters to you, you are more likely to persist when you, for instance, get stuck in the research process.

       (2) Researching your idea

  • A well-planned research lays a solid foundation for your project. How did you conduct your research and what did you find?  Were the resources you researched relevant to your research question? Did they help you understand your problem better? Did you analyze your research data or your resources critically to reach a conclusion?  Did your research support your conclusion? Have you had a chance to test your findings?

       (3) Reflecting on your findings

  • How strong were your research and your conclusion? How about the research process, did you skip a step or two? Now it is time to summarize your research process and findings. What were the things you did well and things you could have done better? What did you learn from doing this project? Share with us your reflections, observations, thoughts and feelings. Do you have a better idea now about how to effectively conduct a research project in the future?
  1. Chinese Presentation Skills (25%)
  • You do know the video presentation needs to be recorded in Chinese, right? What about the academic terms? Yes, for those you can use English! Reading from script? NO WAY!
  • Yikes, time for your presentation! Were you prepared to present your project to the audience? Did you clearly state your project idea or research question and stay focused? Was your way of speaking easy to understand? Did your presentation have a clear structure? Was it easy to follow your arguments; for instance, were the transitions natural and smooth? Was there a logical connection between your question, research and findings? If yes—congratulations—you might just have what it takes to be a winner! 
  1. Video Requirements (20%)
  • Here are some basic requirements: make sure you record your name, age, school name, grade, and your teacher/parent’s name clearly. Limit the length of your video to 1~3 minutes—any video shorter than 1 minute or longer than 3 minutes will not be considered. Check out our video format and resolution requirements as well.  If you are not sure, ask someone for help. But remember, ASSISTANCE ONLY! Do Not ask other people to do your work!
  • Your video has to be original, so be honest and do the work yourself! Also, be creative and surprise us with your fancy editing techniques and video effects! 
  1. Early Bird Bonus (5 points)
  • Submissions before or on 06/30/2019 will receive an additional 5 bonus points.

 

Round Two

  1. Inquiry-Based Project (50%)

       (1) Finding your question

  • Asking a good question is the beginning of a good project. What is the question that your project is about? Is it related to the subjects of Science and Social Studies you learned at school?
  • Make sure your question is neither too difficult nor too simple for you. If your question is way too difficult, there is a high chance of failure. On the other hand, if a simple Google search can find the answer to your question, then there is probably no need for a research project.
  • Does the question relate to your daily or school life? If the question matters to you, you are more likely to persist when you, for instance, get stuck in the research process.

Did they help you understand your problem better? Did you analyze your research data or your resources critically to reach a conclusion?  Did your research support your conclusion? Have you had a chance to test your findings?

       (3) Reflecting on your findings

  • How strong were your research and your conclusion? How about the research process, did you skip a step or two? Now it is time to summarize your research process and findings. What were the things you did well and things you could have done better? What did you learn from doing this project? Share with us your reflections, observations, thoughts and feelings. Do you have a better idea now about how to effectively conduct a research project in the future?
  1. Chinese Presentation Skills (20%)

  1. Public Voting (10% )
  • Pick up your phone or turn on your computer, call and email everyone you know to cast votes for you! It is time to test your popularity! You are almost there to be a big winner!

Grading Rubrics

Round One

  1. Inquiry-Based Project (55%)

       (1) Finding your question

  • Asking a good question is the beginning of a good project. What is the question that your project is about? Is it related to the subjects of Science and Social Studies you learned at school?
  • Make sure your question is neither too difficult nor too simple for you. If your question is way too difficult, there is a high chance of failure. On the other hand, if a simple Google search can find the answer to your question, then there is probably no need for a research project.
  • Does the question relate to your daily or school life? If the question matters to you, you are more likely to persist when you, for instance, get stuck in the research process.

       (2) Researching your idea

  • A well-planned research lays a solid foundation for your project. How did you conduct your research and what did you find?  Were the resources you researched relevant to your research question? Did they help you understand your problem better? Did you analyze your research data or your resources critically to reach a conclusion?  Did your research support your conclusion? Have you had a chance to test your findings?

       (3) Reflecting on your findings

  • How strong were your research and your conclusion? How about the research process, did you skip a step or two? Now it is time to summarize your research process and findings. What were the things you did well and things you could have done better? What did you learn from doing this project? Share with us your reflections, observations, thoughts and feelings. Do you have a better idea now about how to effectively conduct a research project in the future?
  1. Chinese Presentation Skills (25%)
  • You do know the video presentation needs to be recorded in Chinese, right? What about the academic terms? Yes, for those you can use English! Reading from script? NO WAY!
  • Yikes, time for your presentation! Were you prepared to present your project to the audience? Did you clearly state your project idea or research question and stay focused? Was your way of speaking easy to understand? Did your presentation have a clear structure? Was it easy to follow your arguments; for instance, were the transitions natural and smooth? Was there a logical connection between your question, research and findings? If yes—congratulations—you might just have what it takes to be a winner! 
  1. Video Requirements (20%)
  • Here are some basic requirements: make sure you record your name, age, school name, grade, and your teacher/parent’s name clearly. Limit the length of your video to 1~3 minutes—any video shorter than 1 minute or longer than 3 minutes will not be considered. Check out our video format and resolution requirements as well.  If you are not sure, ask someone for help. But remember, ASSISTANCE ONLY! Do Not ask other people to do your work!
  • Your video has to be original, so be honest and do the work yourself! Also, be creative and surprise us with your fancy editing techniques and video effects! 
  1. Early Bird Bonus (5 points)
  • Submissions before or on 06/30/2019 will receive an additional 5 bonus points.
