# Carving Marking scheme

## Recommended Posts

Okay, my kaplan instructor was awesome and kind enough to provide us with a marking scheme example. Now the title reads Carving Marking Scheme for Carving #7. So this is only an example of one carving design, I don't know the exact design but from the marking you can get an idea what the design consists of. Sorry I'd scan it but I don't have a scanner. So here is the break down (the numbers to the right tell you what each is worth):

General

Broken soap 0 (means you get an automatic 0)

Wrongly interpreted 0 (means you get an automatic 0)

Incompletely carved -20 (negative markdown)

Severe chipping* -15 (negative markdown)

Symmetry (on the right plan) 0.5

Orientation (distances from each other) 0.5

Middle: 1 trough

1. Depth= 5 mm 2

2. Length= 30 mm 2

3. Line angles= 90 2

4. Smoothness of floor and walls 1

*Any minor chipping not accounted for before -4 (negative markdown)

Right end (flutes and square)

1. Square dimensions= 8mm 4

2. Dimensions of the flute=25 mm 4

3. is the square centered? 2

4. Smoothness of flutes and their inclines 4

*Any minor chipping not accounted for before -4 (negative markdown)

Left end (2 triangles)

1. Depths=5, 6, 5 mm 2

2. Distance between the wall and apex of the triangle= 14 mm 2

3. Line angles= 90 2

4. Smoothness of floor and walls 2

*Any minor chipping not accounted for before -4 (negative markdown)

Final mark: /30

I hope this gives you an idea of how they mark the soap.
