Advanced Computer Art Rubric

Assessment Published 7/28/13 Last updated on 5/16/18

My advanced digital imaging students use this rubric for their artwork. Each student may be using Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, or some other combination or software. This is mean to generically capture the goals for each project while allowing students the freedom to choose their own artistic path. Each category receives a score out of 4. Think of like GPA on a 4-point scale. 4 is an A, 3 is a B, etc. I do give half points. This is a fairly standard format in our art department.

Because it is general, this could be adapted to other subject areas looking to explore arts integration. Social studies, english, whatever you want! Leave questions in the comments sections.

Very cool. Is it a digital form that a teacher could fill out on their tablet, desktop or smartphone? Or is it a paper rubric. It is a fantastic rubric, even if it is paper-only.

Thanks! I'm glad you like them. The 4 point system is something my art department had invented a year before I arrived (12 years ago). Parents love the thorough descriptions, students appreciate the "common mistakes" column. One is column is thorough, the other is quick and easy.
