Overview of Assessment

Students will undertake a fully integrated Textile Design project brief which will require them to undertake market research , develop a range of designs, present a folio and then put designs into production developing prototype concepts.

Workplans, diaries,production schedules and technical files can be  submitted as evidence of panning and organisation.

The project will require students to be actively involved in group discussions during sessions and to undertake project work in a professional manner.

They will also prepare and production plan and be expected to attend regular meeting with supervisors to establish work process and planning .

To achieve successful completion of this course students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.
Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.
Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt.
Units assessed as ‘not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ‘competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.

Assessment Tasks

Students will undertake a major design and production project. Details of the brief will be provided.

You will be required to manage your time effectively and plan the production processes.

Evidence in  the form of diaries,  order forms for supply of materials and resources, produciton schedules will be required.

A SWOT analysis of process will be submitted at the end of the project
