GRADING RUBRIC

Criteria Excellent Good Fair Poor
Pacing Minor errors -1

Project is very well paced—all edits fall on beats or other appropriate moments in the music; clip lengths feel just right; and the movements within the clips often match the rhythm of the music.

Errors -2

Pacing is good, but could be tweaked a bit. Some clips may run a little too long (or are too short), and/or cuts don’t quite fall on the beats, or match other appropriate points in the music.

Errors -3

Pacing is uneven. Several clips are too long and drag, or are short (or both), or there may be too few clips to create good pacing; many edits don’t sync well with the music, etc.

Errors -4 and more

Pacing is poor; there seems to be little relationship between the music and the timing of the visuals.

Media Clips Minor errors -1

The clips chosen are an excellent match to the rhythm and lyrics of the music. In addition, the sections of the clips selected were well chosen to maximize visual impact—the most interesting and visually dynamic moments.

Errors -2

There are a large variety of clips and they are used well for the most part—but some either don’t to fit the music or context created quite as well as others, or suffer from dull spots (not as visually interesting as a different clip would be, or even a different portion of the chosen clip).

Errors -3

The clips chosen lack something—perhaps they feature less interesting moments; perhaps they are a poor match to the lyrics; perhaps there is little variety in the clips chosen (too few footage sources). Look for a greater variety of interesting and appropriate visual moments.

Errors -4 and more

There is little obvious connection between clip choices and music; they seem to have been selected and put together completely at random.

Edits Minor errors -1

Edits are clean (no gaps, stray frames or other technical problems). Transitions (if used) are well chosen and very clean and well-paced.

Errors -2

A couple Minor technical glitches—perhaps there are gaps between edits, or there is a rough transition, or something similar.

Errors -3

There are numerous technical glitches (gaps, rough transitions, audio problems, etc.)

Errors -4 and more

60% is needed to pass
Serious technical flaws: many gaps and/or stray frames, or large gaps, or poorly executed transitions, etc.
