Overview of Assessment

Assessment is on-going throughout the course. Assessment tasks will require you demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills.
Assessment tasks in this course are:
4 practical projects

The RMIT assessment charter summarises your responsibilities as a student as well as those of your teachers. http://www.rmit.edu.au/about/studentcharter


Assessment Tasks

Assessments tasks and dates for Teams will vary for each group depending on the VMP installation dates.

Tasks in this course are formative and summative. Feedback throughout the course may be written, verbal or a combination of both.

Formative tasks. Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks and you should engage in all formative tasks.

Summative Tasks. Summative Tasks, all of which must be completed/submitted. You are required to demonstrate all learning outcomes to a satisfactory standard.

The tasks all require evidence of exploring and developing the 3D process and the creation of 3D elements to a high standard.

Duration

This course will be delivered for 32 weeks over two semesters.

Demonstrating Competency

To demonstrate competency in this course you need to complete each  assessment to a satisfactory standard.

Formative exercises

Formative assessment will be ongoing and observed duriing class time, when design and development of props and display elements are being developed and prototype.

Feedback guidance and direction will be given directly in class to help you develop your design skills so you can sucessfully complete design and construction of props for the summative assessments tasks.

Demonstrate safe use of tools and equipment .

Summative Assessment Tasks: Equally weighted.


Task A - Free choice elements for display

Assesment will be by observation of the development and construction of the prop in classtime in the Studio workshop along with the submission of development work including thumbnail sketches, scale drawing and final presentation sketch used to develop props and display elements, including photo of final display using prop.

Due: Final submission of all elements due after installation of display in VMP 2

Task B- Retail Branding props

Assesment will be by observation of the development and construction of the prop in classtime in the Studio workshop along with the submission of development work including thumbnail sketches, scale drawing and final presentation sketch used to develop props and display elements, including photo of final display using prop.

Due: Final submission of all elements due after installation of display in VMP 2

Task C - Front Window props

Assesment will be by observation of the development and construction of the prop in classtime in the Studio workshop, as well as the submission of development work including thumbnail sketches, scale drawing and final presentation sketch used to develop props and display elements, including photo of final display using prop.

Due: Final submission of all elements due after installation of display in VMP 2

Task D - Mannequin elements project &/or custom prop


Competency based assessment

You will receive feedback with verbal and/or written evaluation of your progress within class time.

The submitted projects will be assessed with written feedback as well as a quality indicator that relates to separate components of the project and the overall outcome.

Assessment Grading: Your final level of assessment for this course will be graded as follows.
CHD : Competent with High Distinction : 80 – 100
CDI : Competent with Distinction 70 – 79
CC - Competent with Credit : 60 – 69
CAG - Competency Achieved Graded : 50 – 59
