Abstract Title: A Grading Rubric for Intermediate Laboratory Courses in Physics
Abstract: Physics majors at West Chester University take a two semester sequence of laboratory courses designated Intermediate Lab I and II.  Each semester, students are required to write three "research papers", consistent with the conventions of scientific journal papers.  We have prepared a grading rubric that articulates the qualities of a good scientific paper.  The rubric has four main categories:  accuracy, precision, completeness, and convention.  These are complemented with categories addressing the structure of the paper and the quality of writing.
