Analytical Rubric for Contour Maps (earth science) Neatness Map is crystal clear, no isolines touch or cross, no stray pen or pencil marks and overall appearance shows care and attention to detail. Numbers are legible, yet unobtrusive, symbols are unmistakable. 3 points Map is clear, although signs of carelessness may appear. Isolines do not cross, and stray pencil marks are minimal or mostly erased. Numbers are legible, symbols conform with handout guidelines. 2 points Map lacks clarity. Isolines are nebulous, extraneous marks litter the page. Numbers are messy, symbols confusing. 1 point Map is an utter mess. No attempt at neatness is evident. Includes a blank page. 0 points Completeness Every isoline is present on map, and clearly labeled. Proper lines are used for topographic elements, and symbols represent all known or discernible structures. 3 points Requires isolines are present, some labels may be missing. Most identifiable structures in landscape are represented by appropriate symbols. 2 points Some isolines missing, labels intermittent. Few structures are represented by the appropriate symbols. 1 point More isolines are missing than are present, labels rare to nonexistent. Symbols for other structures are not present whatsoever. 0 points Accuracy Map clearly corresponds to given landscape. Geologic formations are clearly identifiable, and distances between objects on map are directly related to reality. 3 points Map represents landscape. General contours are identifiable, although details may be slightly off. Distances are mostly consistent with reality. 2 points Map is a gross interpretation of reality. Hills and valleys exist, but shapes vary from given landscape. Distances between objects are only roughly proportional to given landscape. 1 point Are you sure you were mapping the landscape I gave you? 0 points by Joel Stachura, 1995
