Education is a contiguous and consecutive process. Thereby learning skills and knowledge in any context, requires strong and powerful academic basis. To reach this target, evaluation as a means to recognize studentís learning level and making decisions for further educating steps seems essential. All the Educational systems have sort of official examination, assessment or grading policy to measure studentís learning stage. In the typical policy, students are told clearly about the proposed assessment program and the relative weightings of the various components and they are given timely and helpful feedback after each assessment stage. Internationally, in these decades, universities and educators have become increasingly committed to making assessment and grading more effective in promoting student learning. Appraisal methods and grading systems in studio based educating systems, such as architecture, more than other majors and fields needs attention and scrutiny. Because transmitting the success amount of solving ill-defined problems in design studios to grading symbols are more difficult than multiple choice tests and even open ended questions. The primary interest of this study is in grading methods that claim to be criteria-based. This study tries to hybrid the criteria based models to introduce a new appraisal method in evaluating architectural projects in universities, based on a review of the most common grading policies.
