This is a really simple rubric that works beautifully for weekly sketchbooks that I assign.
It's a "MINI" version of the other one found in my shop.
I photocopy two of these on one sheet, cut it in half, and have students use the small slip as a "bookmark" in the page they want me to mark....makes it easy to find!
It makes marking easy - You could either do it on the spot with students..just call them up one-by-one and go though it. If there's not enough time, you could always collect the sketchbooks and write in feedback on this sheet.
It has LOOK FOR's which include:
-elements and principles / composition
(these are all really easy for them to understand - so it's not vague, which is key to marking art)
On the left hand side of the expectations are two columns:
-one for positive
-one for "work on's"
I write one comment per section - to help them feel great about themselves / have one specific thing to improve for next time.
TIP - this is also great for a group critique - they can write one comment for another student on this sheet before you collect to mark.
It's also great for self-evaluation - have them do one comment per side before submitting.
The full-sized (matching) version of this rubric can be found here:
