RE:[teacherartexchange] Weighing grades in art class?

My campus has a required grade weight system. It is: six weeks test is 14%, summative assessments (major projects for us) are 50%, and formative assessments (daily work, homework, etc) are 36%.

We are not allowed to grade on work ethic, participation, or bringing supplies - we can only give grades for a product that meets one or more of our TEKS (Texas curriculum standards).
