• Evaluation of Submitted Work

    Mentors, teachers and judges using standardized rubrics will do scoring of High School Project assignments.  No late submissions of the final draft of the research paper or the portfolio will be accepted or scored without approval by the Review Board.  It should be noted that no subsequent assignments would be accepted for submission until previous assignments are completed with a score of basic.
