Grading Studio Design Work

I mentioned these articles in class and post them here for your reference. Grading Art, College The Easy Way

The issues that stand out for me and that I'm considering are:

1. skill to describe/articulate and form a design problem

2. participation in the studio/contribution to the studio culture

3. ability to transform concepts through development and refinement

4. mastery of materials and craft in completing project (to the level required)

5. synergy and aesthetics - ability to create forms and relationships - to put things together - in a complete and 'appropriate' manner
