Assessment is carried out through coursework, both written and practical. There are no exams on this course. A variety of assessment methods are used throughout the course which include: Informal Tutorials. Held on a regular basis across all levels, wherein each student discusses their work with a member of staff during studio sessions. Formal Tutorials. These are held twice a term at the student’s desk with two members of staff. The work is discussed and we look at practical development, conceptual growth and future intentions. Group critiques. Held on a regular basis with the module lecturer. They’re about sharing ideas with peers with valuable input from staff. Formal presentations. These normally take place at the end of a module, exhibition or educational visit, in order to measure performance against assessment criteria. Exhibiting work. Again the nature of this varies within the context of the projects, the work to be assessed and the stage of the programme - it can range in formality from a public venue to the individual student’s desk space.
