• ART GRADES: What Do They Mean?!
    (2nd through 6th grade)

     

    1

    U

    Unsatisfactory:  You refused to participate and/or belligerently broke our art class rules.

    2

    N

    Needs Improvement:  You wasted class time*, did not follow directions, or made an inappropriate choice.

    2.5

    S-

    (Almost) Satisfactory:  You completed the assignment, but your finished piece was messy or didn't demonstrate understanding of the concept.

    3

    S

    Satisfactory:  Congratulations!  You did everything you were supposed to do, in exactly the way you were supposed to do it!

    3.5

    S+

    (More Than) Satisfactory:  You had a great creative idea and/or your work was especially neat and pretty.  You worked extra-hard on this piece.

    4

    E

    Excellent:  WOW!  You amaze me!  Your work is remarkably beautiful and especially creative.  You went above and beyond the assignment and created a "masterpiece."  (This doesn't happen very often, even to the best of artists.  Be excited when it does, but don't worry if you don't get a "4" all the time.)

    * Students are not penalized for unfinished projects if they are using class time wisely.  Unfinished work will remain blank or might show as a “0” on Infinite Campus.  Blank assignments and 0’s are NOT an indicator of a problem in art class.

    Kindergarten and 1st grade have a different grading scale.  See the grading scale description on your child's report card for more information.
