A Visual Journal Progress Rubric

IB Visual Arts: A Visual Journal Progress Rubric

Many teachers have expressed an interest in having some sort of rubric for marking students journals throughout the course. This is not a part of the final assessment but may be helpful in keeping students on track and up to date in their journals.

I just discovered this wonderful rubric which I think will be very helpful to me in providing a school grade for the course. I have a few questions if I may. First, in the first semester or two there may be things that we still won't cover until later such as screen shots and museum visits. Should I be working everything in the five categories into each semester or is this an all inclusive list that can easily be tailored based on our needs? Secondly, I'm assuming that as teachers we just need to think want a "4" looks like and write a description for 1-4 (12 is more complicated) or do you have a different suggestion? Thanks in advance.

Hi Chad, this is intended to be a loose rubric to help teachers come up with grades before assessed work is completed. You can chose a focus area for each semester, no need to cover it all! the division into points does NOT correspond to the PP criteria but rather to help you make a 1-7 grade during formative assessment of the journal and works in progress.
