    Students will be receiving two grades in art – one for content mastery and one for conduct.  The art grade is given four times a year at the end of each nine week marking period. The AISD rubric for determining content mastery grades follows this page.  The conduct grade will be determined based on the following scale:

    ·       0-1 conduct marks = O (Outstanding)
    ·       2    conduct marks = S (Satisfactory)
    ·       3 + conduct marks = N (Needs improvement)
