I'm having a terrible time deciding how many points to give to proofs on geometry tests. At first, I gave 1pt. for each segment of the proof, but that meant that almost 1/2 of the points were from the proofs. I reduced it to 1pt. per line, but that still seems to weight the test towards the proofs. While I understand that proofs are a big part of geometry, I've been told that traditional schools don't spend much time on them any more. I also feel that it's more important for students to be able to figure out which rule to use and to apply it correctly than for them to be able to explain it through proofs. Therefore, I don't want to give more weight to proofs than the application. Please tell me how you grade proofs and why. I really need to decide how to do this so I can get a transcript made out.
