The research topic chosen is related to the use of rubrics and how using a rubric for scoring lab reports might impact student performance on lab reports. I also wanted to see if rubric use could improve their knowledge of science content as well. I chose this as my topic because for the past 12 years as a science teacher, I have noticed inadequacies in student performance on lab reports. The students seem to enjoy the lab experiments, but when it comes to the lab report there are some obvious deficiencies in lab report writing skills. I have also noticed that students do not seem to make connections between the labs and the science content.
