O = Outstanding
S = Satisfactory
N = Needs Improvement
Sentences: If a comprehension question requires a sentence, students are expected to use capital letters and end marks correctly. Students are also reminded to read over their sentence because it must make sense!
Reversed numbers and letters:
Points are deducted or counted wrong for writing numbers and letters backwards.
*Students are given the following reminder often: "Teachers should not be the first person to read the answers you give. The first person should be YOU, so you can make sure it makes sense!"
In order to receive full credit for the correct answer, students are also required to use a label as a part of the answer.
Both of these directions apply to the Indiana Standardized tests students are taking in third grade.
