Dear Art Friends:
I am in a quandary. I am trying to come up with a "new" grading system for
next year. Currently, the grades I give on major projects consist of a
participation grade, an effort grade and the actual project grade. I don't
have a problem with this except when I feel that a student takes the easy way
out or chooses something "below" their skill level. I was thinking about the
way they score a dive or figure skating by using a "degree of difficulty" in
the scoring process. I want to be able to encompass a degree of difficulty.
I have a mix of students grades 9-12 in most of my classes. Do any of you
utilize this system or have I completely lost my mind?
