I still use this system in the high school -Final grades are "weighted" based
         40% Studio Projects (grade based on how well specified -criteria was
         30% Sketchbook (10 entries required per week)
         15% Class participation (Discussions, Presentations, Clean-up etc.)
         15% Quizes, Tests, Written work
I use the MTG program for both grading and attendence by GRADEBUSTERS
