EVALUATION AND GRADING
Final Grades will be determined in the following manner:
80% In-class Projects and Oral Critiques
20% Lab – Safety and In-Class Preparedness
Jewelrymaking is a hands-on, studio class. The instructor will be conducting on-going evaluation and
assessment during each class period as well as conducting demonstrations, which cannot easily be
repeated. Therefore, attendance (or lack thereof) will play a role in the determination of the final
grade. A student may miss class without penalty three (3) times. After that, the final grade will be
lowered by one third of a letter grade for each additional absence. Arriving late or leaving early will
result in ½ an absence and be factored into the final grade accordingly.
