Social Issue Digital Image

Social Issue Digtal Image

Students will create artwork that addresses a relevant social issue within their school or community in a way that captures viewers’ attention and generates thought. This assessment asks students to combine a digital image with text in order to make a visual statement.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
