Assessment requirements

When considering the learning outcomes for your course unit, it is important to know what you are being asked to submit. These are known as your assessment requirements. In summary, these will include: 

  1. A selection of entries from your learning log. These should evidence the connections between your coursework and the learning outcomes. It should illustrate an edited selection of the exercises done, and provide background information, research, sketches, workings-out and notes, showing how you arrived at the ideas represented in those exercises and the final assignments. You may also wish to include any additional personal research work done beyond that required by the course documents. 
  2. A selection of creative work. This should be a portfolio or other presentation of your final or strongest pieces. You may also want to include some work, from the exercises and tasks set, that show the ‘process’ of your designing, as well as that that shows the final design outcome. Remember that your most creative work may not always be the ‘final’ design outcome, and could be - for example - a progression of quick, iterative, sketch models.
  3. Any written elements such as critical reviews. This should include any required essay, review or report elements such as Contextual Studies and Close Reading exercises. You may also wish to include reference to any additional personal reading done, that relates to your course studies. In ID4ETE your Interior Design Manifesto may also be presented as a written document. 
  4. A reflective presentation or evaluation. This will be an opportunity to reflect on your learning experiences as a whole. It can take the form of a presentation, short video, or a written piece, and should be no longer than 6 minutes or 750 words. This is a useful opportunity to evidence how you can communicate the progress made on your own learning journey. Think about personal strengths and weaknesses explored through the exercises and tasks set on the course, and reflect on how you will challenge those in the next part of your studies.
