Standards-Based Grading for the Arts

A Practical Guide for Arts Educators

IN THE CLASSROOM

Standards-Based Grading

How do you grade art? If you're an arts educator in a school that requires grading, you’ve been asked this question by both the skeptical and the curious. Art education has long struggled to fit within the confines of the traditional grading system. Assigning a single letter or number to represent an average of assignments, projects, and effort doesn’t quite represent student growth in the arts.

This guide tackles the arts-grading dilemma with standards-based grading (SBG). Learn what standards-based grading is, how to employ it, and why shifting to this practice has the potential to positively impact students, their families, your craft, and your school community.
