Overview of Assessment

Your assessment tasks are a combination of practical and theoretical. Assessment will occur throughout the course, enabling you to receive ongoing feedback about your progress. Written feedback will be provided for each piece of work.

Authentication of Work

PLEASE NOTE: Tasks that work that has not been authenticated during class as your own work will not be considered for assessment. Regular attendance is necessary.

You will be given further information about the assessment tasks in class.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment is ongoing through observation and demonstration.

On completion of the Project, a portfolio of work is submitted. The portfolio contains several pieces of work:

1. Design Storyboards
2. Patterns on Card
3. A collection of garments representing the fashion range.
4. A Business Plan.
5. Supporting documentation in the format of a bound report.
You are assessed on technical skills and knowledge as well as a host of relevant employability skills such as communication, teamwork, negotiation and the ability to project manage.

Assessment Matrix

Other Information

Learners are expected to conduct relevant research outside of school hours. This includes visiting fashion enterprises and sourcing information online. Learners continue working on their project during non-teacher directed time.

Graded assessment
The Project is assessed holistically based upon the contents of the portfolio and observation/demonstration of employability skills
