Assessment method

Formative assessment and clear, developmental feedback and assessment 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. 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.
