our new grading policy : FOCUSING ON PRACTICE AND PROCESS
FINE ARTS UNIVERSAL GRADING RUBRIC
A version of this rubric will be used to grade all major projects. Sometimes project specific objectives will be included as well.
how does my rubric grade turn in to my powerschool grade?
Please don't wait until something gets to PowerSchool to check on your grades, make it a regular practice to check iTunes U. Anything less than full credit will always have comments as to how to revise your submission and improve your grade. If you see a grade you are unhappy with in PowerSchool, refer to iTunes U and read my comments before you come to me. I am always happy to discuss grades, but do your part, show your engagement.
