        Rubrics are an excellent way of setting your expectations.
        Establish what aspects of the work will be assessed (craftsmanship, use of visual elements...) and describe in detail what your expectations are at each level of achievement. For example to get an A in craftsmanship students work would have to demonstrate considerable attention to detail, neatness, use appropiate materials suited to their intentions, etc.
        Having the rubric before starting their project really has improved their work. It also allows students to have the criteria to evaluate their own work and the work of their friends (they especially like doing this). We will also have class critiques where some students explain why they have given a specific grade to another student, making references to specific aspects of the artwork.
        Hope this helps,
        Massiel Arregui
         
        PS I can send some example rubrics, you can also get some from rubistarforteaching.

                This year I've told the kids up front that art is communication. They are making art works that will go out into the world as ideas hanging on walls in an exhibition, and if they're putting in the minimal effort simply to show me they know the right answers, they're not making art. I focus the class on 'being an artist'. I grade 'portfolio' (doing the assignments) as one 20% category and 'presentation' as another 20%.

                &gt;I am a middle school teacher in a state that does not require elementary
                &gt;school students to take art. Therefore, they are missing the basics. How
                &gt;do I emphasize the importance of craftsmanship? I have tried giving them
                &gt;lower grades and telling them that if they want a better grade they have
                &gt;to do it over and do it neater. I haven't had one even make an effort.
                &gt;The middle grades do not require my class nor do they have to pass it.
                &gt;Any helpful hints?
                &gt;
                &gt;Seeking answers,
                &gt;
                &gt;Jenn
