Mrs. Apostolides Classroom
Our 2013 Parent School Climate survey indicates that many parents were unsure how their child's work was evaluated. With art being so subjective, and differing opinions of what constitutes as "creative," I thought I would clear up any confusion and explain how I evaluate your child's work.
For most projects, the method of scoring I use is a rubric. The rubric contains specific information that is tailored to the individual projects, and includes a set of criteria that your child needs to include in his or her work. The following is an example of criteria that needs to be included on a fall landscape project I did with my second grade students. The students circle yes or no, based on what their own artwork looks like. The students are then given a chance to revise their work, and included any criteria that may be missing, before continuing on to the coloring portion of their drawing.
Art Concept & Idea Presented: Developing the element of space in a drawing
- Does your drawing include a horizon line? Yes/No
- Does your drawing have a foreground? Yes/No
- Does your drawing have a middleground? Yes/No
- Does your drawing have a background? Yes/No
- Did you overlap in your drawing? Yes/No
The following is an example of a scoring method I use for how well a student applies their markers to their art work.
Not meeting objectives = 1
I did not color all the white areas in. My marker application is messy and I did not attempt to stay inside the lines.
Progressing to meet objectives=2
I can color neatly inside the lines, but many areas can be improved.
I was successful using my markers to color. All the white areas are covered, and I stayed inside the lines.
Things To Remember
Although most of the paint we use for projects is washable, some types of paints and media may be difficult to remove from clothing. I encourage students to dress down on art days. Even though I do provide smocks for the students to wear, accidents are still unavoidable.
