Overview of Assessment

Assessment is on-going throughout the course. Assessment will incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of knowledge and skills and will include:
EXAMPLES
- Practical tasks, a major project and a short test
- direct observation including exploration of and experimentation with techniques
- written and/or oral questioning and discussion to assess knowledge and understanding
- completion of an art journal and/or portfolio including personal reflection and feedback
- direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence…

Please note: All Assessment tasks need to be completed before competency is achieved. A number of tasks will be formative to show your progress and development of skills and knowledge throughout the semester. The final task will be summative to provide a level of performance in addition to your competency.


The RMIT assessment charter summarises your responsibilities as a student as well as those of your teachers. http://mams.rmit.edu.au/kh6a3ly2wi2h1.pdf
 


Assessment Tasks

Throughout the semester you will be required to complete the following:
Class exercises/activities based on basic drawing, editing and printing commands
Student interaction will be monitored to assess student’s ability to help others

Four assessable drawing tasks:
• Task 1 - Store Floor Plan Part 1
• Task 2 - SketchUp 3D Model Conversion and Documentation
• Task 3 - Store Floor Plan Part 2
• Task 4 - Flat Pack Glasses Design and Documentation

Further details of tasks as well as "what is expected from each task" will be available on the web based "Blackboard" portal. The "Assessment Rubric" will also be made available to delineate what constitutes a fail, competency, competency with high distinction, etc.
