Assessment method

Achievement of learning outcomes is facilitated by systems of academic guidance and supervision designed to ensure that a common understanding of progress is achieved and strategies for improvement defined. Assessment is not seen as separate from the learning process, as throughout the professional life of the student and practitioner, continuous formative assessment through student/staff contact and peer contact, are integral with the creative process. Throughout all studio practice, there are the elements of trial and error, and continuous objective and subjective analysis through debate between individual students, student groups, and staff. Formative assessment and clear, developmental feedback are core to the teaching and learning experience. Student presentations, portfolio reviews, self and peer assessment, tutorials, seminar presentations and the critique (crit), together with a studio-based culture and environment, all allow the opportunity for formative feedback and assessment, both verbal and written, to take place on a regular basis. Individual and group tutorials, considering work in progress, are scheduled on a regular basis. Group critiques are a means of facilitating verbal peer group feedback as well as staff feedback. The curriculum is designed to encourage independence in learning and the accompanying assessment strategy ensures that students receive appropriate feedback to improve skills, capabilities and awareness of how successfully they have applied an increasingly sophisticated knowledge base to their studies. Students experience a variety of assessment methods through which knowledge and skills development are tested. The teaching, learning and assessment strategy aims to facilitate a learning process in which students can develop a range of creative, cognitive, technical and personal skills, knowledge and capabilities appropriate to the subject and future career paths.
