I developed this art grading rubric for middle and high school art projects. It allows student artwork to be evaluated in 5 areas - Elements of Art, Principals of Design, Creativity/Problem Solving, Craftsmanship, and Effort. The teacher can fill in specifically which Element(s) of Art, Principal(s) of Design, etc., that the project focuses on. The student can evaluate himself/herself and turn in this grading sheet with his/her project. Students self-evaluate in each of the 5 areas, and answer a question for each project. There is space for written comments (for teacher and student) at the bottom). Student performance is assessed in an objective way.
