Art Class Grading Policy

On report cards/progress reports, you will receive a Pass/Fail grade (P or F), PLUS effort and conduct ratings, and teacher's comments.

Your Art Class grade is based on class participation (50%) and art class assignments and projects (50%).

Parents: All grades will be posted on the Apsen Parent Portal. Please share and dicuss these with your child.

Students: I will always grade you based on your own personal abilities and the artistic growth you make with time and effort. (Growth Mindset)
Keep a positive attitude, do your best, and I guarantee you will have success in my class!

Class Participation
