Rubric for Demonstration
Please note: This rubric is set up mathematically so that if you hand in the complete assignment on time and get a 1 (Meets Standard) on all other items, you will end up with a 1.6 out of 2. This translates into a score of 160/200 or a low B. A low A or above is achieved with an average score on each item of 1.5 or above.
