I know you are working with a higher level of students, but I have quite a
few students and this is the quickest most efficient way to grade the project.
I personally go around the room and go through the sketchbook with the
student. It saves me time looking for the required assignments. I have a
quick grading sheet for each student. It lists the required assignments, I
check the box if it needs more time spent, was satisfactory, or much thought
and energy given. I add up the points. It's very cut and dry. Works pretty
well, I write the grade down in my book and give them their sheet. I also
will give them day to work some more if they want to bring up their grade,
but they must bring back the grade sheet and arrange time.
It's fast and efficient and works pretty well. I can personally speak with
them about their books too.
