Overview of Assessment

Evidence of the following is essential:
• production of a range of samples or concept realisations which show the creative application of the processes to 3-dimensional forms
• knowledge of the design process as it applies to 3-dimensional work.


Assessment Tasks

Assessment Tasks in this course are either formative or summative.  Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks.  Summative assessment tasks in this course are graded.

Feedback throughout the course may be written, verbal or a combination of both.

To demonstrate competency in this course you need to complete each one of the following pieces of assessment to a satisfactory standard.

Task 1 - Major Project - Warehouse Residence Renovation

Your major project is to design a renovation of a converted warehouse shell from concept through to final working drawings.  You will be required to research concept ideas, specify and implement furniture plans, complete joinery drawings and scale model of Kitchen and present all in mixed media presentation supported by an oral presentation.  There will be 4 separate components of this project that you will be graded on : 1. A4 project file 2. Warehouse Documentation, 3. Kitchen Documentation and Model, 4. Oral and Visual Presentation.  Submission Due Dates: A4 project file (formative) - Week 4 & 15, Warehouse Documentation (formative) - Week 4 and 15, All other documentation (summative) is due Week 15.
