Task 6: Construction Documents 30% As a record of your progress and to develop your project management skills you will be
required to keep a field book. The field book is a bound notebook that contains to do lists,
work completed and project notes. The field book will be reviewed weekly during studio and
will account for 10% of your overall course grade. This reiterates the importance of managing
and planning your work.

Course work is designed to simulate the professional office environment. The project will
progress based on a schedule with milestone submittals. Submittals will be reviewed by a
supervisor or mentor, and returned, with comments, for revision.
Revisions will continue through the semester until the work demonstrates a suitable level of
proficiency. The milestone submittals and final submittal will contribute to your overall course
grade. You will also be responsible to keep track of and plan your work in a Work Log.
The individual break down of your cumulative semester grade is as follows:
1. Attendance and Participation

80% (100 pts)
3. Field Book
10% (10 pts)
Final letter grades will be assigned using the following scale:

B > 83%
C > 74%
D > 65%
F ≤ 65% The Department of Landscape Architecture uses the following guidelines for
