How will my portfolio be graded?
- Score points from 6 (excellent) through 5 (strong), 4 (good), 3 (moderate), 2 (weak), and 1 (poor).
- Each score point is characterized by a variety of descriptors of work that would receive that score.
- Because there are only six different points on the scale, each score point represents a band or range of accomplishment.
- Some of the descriptors may seem to contradict each other because the range of possibilities for work at a given score point is so great.
- The descriptors are examples; it isn't expected that all the descriptors for a scale point will apply to any one particular portfolio.
- The descriptors discuss general aspects of artwork at each score point; there is no preferred (or unacceptable) content or style.
- The descriptors (taken as a whole) capture characteristics of work that merits each score.
- 2-D Design Issues may include, but are not limited to, the following: Unity, Variety, Balance, Emphasis, Contrast, Rhythm, Repetition, Proportion, Scale, and Figure/Ground Relationship.
