Test the Product
I noticed on my test plan that all the posters were very well
done. They were all almost perfect how I wanted them to be.
My four experimented posters were handwritten (hand drawn).
They had all enough nice drawings without the X-Factor sign
because that would be copying. I didn’t copy any other poster
and I had fun putting trying some posters by hand. I put some
funny, nice pictures and at the end, one of the four rough drafts
came out very well.
All my four handwritten posters were very well done, but I
know I could of done even a better job on them. All of them had
a small disadvantage. One of them had too much writing, the
other one had too much colors, the other one had too many
images, and the other one had nothing that bad. The three that
had disadvantages weren’t that perfect for having a real
structured poster. They could of all been improved with not too
much info and not too colorful. Also, maybe with some pictures
more or some pictures less. Having appropriate pictures
advertising the X-Factor. I could of also used some more time
for the test plan to decide the best poster because it was a really
hard decision. They all like I said before just had some small
disadvantages. If I could have improved all these, I know
everything could have been very much better with great four
Evaluate your performance
I think I did a good job with the research because I took
my guiding questions, put it on a separate blog post and
then answered the questions. I took a lot of time doing this
and going into this poster. Thedetailed answers of my
guiding questions helped me a lot to design, make the
poster and have a good structure. I also think that it will be
eye-catching and good enough for the people to read it and
attract their attention to go to the X-Factor event. I used
some websites and some books to answer all my guiding
questions and at the end I did a bibliography about the
websites and books I used. I had fun doing this poster and
I hope this class will keep on being fun.
I think that my design is outstanding. I tried my best every
day and the poster turned out to be great with everydaywork. The fonts, the colors and all the effects helped me a
lot making such a difficult poster to advertise the X-Factor
event. The pictures and the writings matched to the
structure of my poster, which was my goal. Thanks to my
four rough draft designs by hand on A4 paper, I chose the
best one, and made it even better on the computer. After I
chose my rough draft I also started thinking of what I
could do better. I asked some friends and my parents and
got enough feedback. With this feedback I made it through
the poster on the computer with no difficulty.
My plan worked out very well because I started with an
introduction and some guiding questions. The guiding
questions had to be detailed and hard questions, and not
easy questions (e.g. What is a poster). I answered all the
questions with my great research with a lot of help on the
Internet. I took a lot of time into this, but at the end I am
happy that I took all this time because the research was the
most important exercise. I made the design brief;
specification and the test plan to help me again with my
poster. All these worked out very well, until I started with
my rough drafts. I drew four posters on A4 paper and put a
lot of work into that. After drawing and writing all these, I
chose the best one. Without the test plan I wouldn’t have
chosen. The test plan shows all four posters detailed and
described and so I looked at them and chose the best one.
After choosing that, I asked for some feedback and started
on Microsoft Publisher to do the great poster.
The creation of the poster showed some fun parts of the
unit. I started doing my poster that I chose from the four
rough drafts. I started working one day in class, and
always after one class I had to do a process journal
showing what I have done this class. Doing the process
journal helped me a lot to finish my poster. I worked one
day, and then the next time when I observed the screenshot
I figured out what could be joined to the poster. Now, I am
very disappointed to hear that the X-Factor was postponed
because I was so excited for this fun event with seeingall
the talents of the school.
Evaluate the Impact of the Product
I obviously learned how to make a successful poster. I
learned about the structure and how to properly advertise
an event. I now know how to attract people to read the
poster, make it eye-catching. I learned that all these steps to
making a poster are really important because without the
steps you want a full poster. I also discovered that I am
pretty good at making posters.
I now know that my whole poster is going to be open
for the whole audience. I hope that my poster has attracted
many adults and students it read the amazing poster and
then hopefully go to the show. My target is to attract some
people to the X-Factor event.
Interaction between the people is very useful, because
if one student has read the poster and wants to go to the
event he is going to tell all his friends by communication.
The friends are also going to know, and so they will also go
to the show. This is how important interaction is between
friends to go to the X-Factor event in the school.
