This project is unique in that it comes with 2 scoring rubrics, one for the written responses and one for the program itself. I’m curious to hear if others decided to use the rubric points as given (12 for program and 5 for the written responses). The weights the program portion much more heavily than the writing.
Also, I am thinking about adding an item to the programming rubric to incentivize creativity and effort. It occurred to me that a student could literally draw a scene containing something as minimal as a bunch of repeated line segments and still receive full credit. Perhaps that shouldn’t be punished and would be considered acceptable under the AP guidelines. Any thoughts on that?
