Grading Policy

Largo High School Art Department views assessment not as a means for merely retrieving information but as a means for charting students’ intellectual pathways, including their thinking and understanding. We approach art as a series of teachable skills, allowing each student an opportunity to achieve success. Both process and product will be utilized to determine the students’ grades. Students will be evaluated using the following factors:

  • Process (Skill Development) Class Participation - Daily progress grades & studio - 25% Time on task Attendance Co-operation Care of supplies and equipment Proper materials for classwork
  • Notebook/Sketchbook/Journal/Practice/Homework - 25%
  • Product (Skill Measurement) - 50% Major Projects/Critiques/Research Papers/Tests/Quizzes

Evaluation Methods or Assessments
