Title: How to Answer Constructed Response or Short Answer Questions


1
How to Answer Constructed Response or Short
Answer Questions
  • Writing Practice

2
Constructed Response or Short Answer Questions
  • They ask you to apply your knowledge and
    understanding in a short written answer.
  • Difference between a constructed response and
    short answer
  • A constructed response will always have a
    document to analyze with the question.
  • A short answer may or may not have a document to
    analyze with the question so they are very
    similar.

How To Write A Constructed Response
  • PLANNING
  • Read the entire question.
  • Identify and underline key words in the question,
    such as explain, elaborate, illustrate.
  • Restate the prompt in your own words to be sure
    that you understand it.
  • List items you should identify in your answer
  • List facts examples to support your answer

4
R.A.C.E.
  • Reword
  • Answer
  • Cite Evidence
  • Explain

5
R.A.C.E
  • WRITING
  • Reword restate the question and make it into a
    statement as a part of the answer you provide.
  • Example
  • Ques - "What color is the sky?"
  • Correct written answer - The color of the sky is
    usually blue," or words to that effect.

6
R.A.C.E
  • ANSWER show how you arrived at your answer with
    general reasons. Usually R A in R.A.C.E. are
    in the same sentence.
  • Example
  • What color is the sky?
  • REWORD The color of the sky is usually blue,
  • ANSWER because of how we see light waves and
    the weather conditions.

7
R.A.C.E
  • Cite Evidence/Examples Use the facts or
    examples to support the R A in R.A.C.E
  • At least 3 Evidence or Examples
  • EXAMPLE
  • The Sky is usually blue because of how we see
    light waves and the weather conditions.
    According to scientist, humans see blue sky based
    on what kinds of light waves are visualized in
    the eye, how sunny the day is and the direction
    of the sunlight.

8
R.A.C.E
  • EXPLAIN THE ANSWER Elaborate on the evidence
    and examples you cited in C.
  • EXAMPLE
  • The Sky is usually blue because of how we see
    light waves and the weather conditions.
    According to scientist, humans see blue sky based
    on what kinds of light waves are visualized in
    the eye, how sunny the day is and the direction
    of the sunlight. On a clear, sunny day, the sun
    is directly shinning on us. Because the
    molecules in the air reflect the scattered blue
    light waves more than red or orange when it
    bounces off the direct sunlight, we see blue. As
    the sun sets, the direction of its light goes
    away from us so the molecules reflect the red or
    orange waves of light that we see at sunsets.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify and explain the Constructed
    Response/Short Answer Rubric Criteria
  • Practice using the Short Answer Rubric with given
    Short Answer.
  • Assess individual work using Short Answer Rubric.
  • Peer Review individual work using the Short

11
The Rubric
  • 4 Point Constructed Response/Short Answer Rubric
  • Understanding (R.)- 1
  • demonstrates an understanding of the question
    and/or document - Your answer shows that you

    the reading.
  • Accuracy (A.)- 1
  • answers all parts of the question accurately
    using correct, factual information  (number of
    parts will depend on the questions)
  • Evidence (C.) - 1
  • use specific evidence to back up answer
  • Explains (E)- 1
  • explains the answer thoroughly and logically - In
    other words, provides enough information to back
    up the answer in a way that makes sense.
  • Total 4 points (may also be 1/2 points for a
    total of 2)

12
Practice Using the Short Answer Rubric
  • Read the following Short Answer Response
  • Assess the Short Answer using the Rubric Criteria
  • Give feedback on how to improve using the words
    on the criteria

Why was the roaring 20s called roaring?
  • The Roaring 20s was probably called roaring
    because the events that occurred during the
    decade had a loud, deep and lasting impact on
    America. The 20s had a loud roar coming from the
    a new music revolution called the Jazz Age, from
    Americans rebellion against prohibition that led
    to the growth of speakeasies and bootleg alcohol,
    and from the attitude of many Americans to eat,
    drink, and be merry. The 20s roar was deep
    because it brought about a lot of cultural
    conflicts that questioned American values and
    traditions. These cultural conflicts included
    issues of evolution v. fundamentalism with the
    Scopes Trial the nativists views against
    anything not American that led to the growth of
    the KKK and violent attacks against immigrants
    and Blacks and the issue of traditional
    Puritan values v. the new attitudes of
    consumerism. Finally, the 20s roar was lasting
    because it brought about significant changes in
    the everyday lives of Americans including the
    mass production of the car, the wide use of the
    radio allowing Americans to have similar
    experiences, and development of modern
    conveniences like the washing machine and vacuum
    make more leisure time available for Americans
    to do other things. In all the 20s roar left a
    lasting impression.
