  • Mark allocation for elective projects is subject to change at the discretion of the teacher, taking into account the individual student’s level of skill. Part of the purpose of this course is to see growth in practical skill and theoretical knowledge. Students who demonstrate no growth in skill (or are not performing at the minimum capabilities for students of their age level) will be assessed differently than those who demonstrate growth and increasing positive change.


  • Students are expected to complete a variety of elective projects and may not choose one type more than once.


For Example: A student cannot accumulate 100 marks by completing 5 knitted scarves throughout the year.


  • Completed projects must meet a minimum standard of achievement (teacher’s discretion), some projects may be refused submission if they do not meet this standard.
