Assessment

Assessment is carried out at key points during teaching. Formative assessment with either verbal and/or written feedback is offered during each module. Written feedback is provided following summative assessment. Assessment tasks are linked to the objectives of each module and are normally completed by the end of each module. Types of assessment evidence can include assignments, projects, case study, reflective and evaluative journals, blogging, portfolio development, peer to peer crits, viva interviews, reports, scale models, and presentations, exhibitions and tutorials.

Throughout the delivery of the course, regular formative feedback on progress will be provided particularly around the design process and to embed the pedagogy of the social process of design. Staff and (where appropriate and available) industry professionals will provide on-going formative feedback in regular tutorials as well as during the learning process. Group critique and presentation by teams will take place and will form an essential part of the creative learning process.
