How is art assessed?

Students in all grades attach a rubric for art projects. 
These rubrics are given to students on the first day a project is assigned. 
We read over and explain each criteria, so that students are aware of the 
requirements of the project. Students will assess themselves first and at 
the completion of the project it is assessed by the teacher.
