      Because we do not have projects due each week, you will receive a weekly process and participation grade.

      In order for your skills to improve in this course, you must gain an understanding of the information provided and practice the techniques and processes introduced. Class time is provided to learn these skills and it is essential you use this time wisely.
      The weekly grade is meant to reflect the credit you have earned for the skills you demonstrate within your studio time.
    • Weekly Grade, 20 pts
      During class you have exceeded expectations and excelled in your effort. You complete your class assignments and begin research or preparations for upcoming projects, help your peers, thoroughly clean your area, etc. (19-20 pts)
      During class you have put forth your best effort. You complete the work assigned and clean your area fully, but do not go above and beyond what is required of you. (11-18 pts)
      During class time you socialize, play on the web, do your math homework… or anything that is not your class projects. You will receive an automatic 0 for skipping class. (0-10 pts)
