Grades and Testing:
Grading: Art work carries greater weight (60%) than short exercises, written work, or quizzes (40%). Art work is graded using a rubric with the following criteria: Craftsmanship/Appearance, Creativity/Individuality, Degree of Completion/Effort, Work Habits, and Citizenship. No art work is graded in reference to another student’s work or by who’s is “the best.” Throughout the course, I will check to determine if concepts were understood. Students will have occasional quizzes on vocabulary and processes. Students are responsible for keeping up with note pages and study guides.
Pre-Test, Mid-term, and Post-test: 7th and 8th students will take the same test three times during the year, and 5th or 6th students during the semester, to determine knowledge and progress. The test is based on the Fine Art TEKS for each level. The grades will be recorded and used to assess mastery, but not averaged into the students’ permanent grades.
Art I Sketchbooks: Art I students will have weekly sketchbook assignments that are linked to ongoing or future classroom lessons. These are mandatory assignments and grades are recorded. Art I students are expected to keep their notes, handouts, and process diaries in a class binder.
Art I Semester and Final exams. Only Art I students take semester and final exams that are counted toward their averages – their class is a high school credit course. The semester and final exams are at each semester end and will cover art vocabulary and techniques, art history, the art elements and principles, and other information studied. I make sure their study guides are specific and extensive.
