Faculty: Please outline your grading policy here, including grading scale and specific participation requirements, as well as how and where you will communicate grades to students.

Sample Grading Breakdown:

Research, independent/ critical assessment, and presentation skills are an all-encompassing part of establishing a design solution. Therefore, grades will be determined as follows:

Process Books 25%
A chronological flow of thinking, research, notations, feedback, sketches, notes, writing, visual planning, and iteration. Must be placed in the book AND reviewed throughout the semester. 5 check-ins required, with a showcase of ample work in-between.  Failure to show process throughout the semester will results in “O” for that week’s check-in. 
Breakout Sessions 15%
In-class or HW related exercises to explore your research techniques, build your process book, and expand your category knowledge.
Midterm Research Summary Report10%
Senior Project Research Paper15%
Research, writing,and why the topic is important/impactful.
Final Concept Presentation20%
Discussion and Participation15%

In the above grading model, Project #1 = 85% and Project #2 = 15%
