We called State Ed and asked about this exact error (common enough that the rubric should have directly addressed it.) Here's what they said:
2 points for 3/18 and 12/18, conceptual error
BUT (I'm still scratching my head on this one)
1 point for writing "3 out of 18" and "12 out of 18", in words but not in fractions

Hm......sounds like a reading error to me...
if they said 3/18 doesn't that imply that the student KNEW that there were THREE outfits? The fact that they stated extra information...that is there were 3 out of 18 (3/18) doesn't mean they didn't understand the concept of how many...clearly, they did if they got a 3 in their answer.

We gave 2 points  thought it was a conceptual error to write a probability instead of how many  Original Message  From: mfreebern <freebernm416@strose.edu> To: nyshsmath@mathforum.org Subject: Re: algebra regents 2011 Date: Fri, 17 Jun 2011 09:10:08 EDT
Question 38...What would give (2 points or 3 points)the question if the student got the correct sample space but wrote the two anwers of 3 and 12 as probabilities (3/18 and 12/18)? ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nyshsmath" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=671 *******************************************************************
