Late Work Policy

I accept all late work for full credit.

Late work should be turned in 2 weeks prior to the end of the semester so we have time to critique, and grade the finished artwork.


Grading Policy

--The Lincoln High School Art Department uses a 4. proficiency grading scale.  4 = excellent  3 = good  2 = in progress/incomplete/major construction issues  1 = incomplete/lack of effort

--If all graded work is a 3 or above in the gradebook students will receive an A at the end of the term.

--If a student is actively working on a project but it was not turned in on time, they will receive a 2 as a placeholder until their work is complete.

--If a student has not started a project that should have already been turned in they will receive a 0 until the project is turned in.

All projects will be graded in several stages, once a stage is complete a grade will be entered for that stage in synergy.

Examples of project stages:

stage 1-idea sketches/worksheets

stage 2-prototype

stage 3-materials cut and prepped

stage 4-project assembled/complete

stage 5-project photographed and added to digital portfolio

stage 6-self-reflection/critique complete
