In groups of 4-5 students must write an answer down, this is then passed to the next person who amends/changes/edits that answer. Each person is encouraged to add a point based on AO’s . The final person in line creates the final answer and delivers that back. Lecturer writes this on the board. Think about it a bit like Chinese whispers
Students take notes and lecturer asks students to answer the questions randomly based on their work
Evaluations don’t have to be written documents like essays. They do have to contain formal language but can be laid out in a variety of ways. Students work in small groups to come up with a variety of appropriate methods making sure they take the above into account. Students feedback.
What to evaluate in Art & Design
Research & Development
• What was the theme for the project?
• How have you developed your ideas? How did your
work change through the project?
• How much reference material did you find? Do you
think you should have done more or less?
• What artists, art movements or contextual work have
you looked at to help and inspire you?
• What materials, tools and techniques did these artists
• How have your skills (be specific here) developed
during the project? How are they linked to research?
• Are there any aspects of your studies that you wish you
had explored further
• How have you used formal elements such as line, tone,
colour and shape?
• How have you used lighting? Use key terminology here.
• What materials did you use, and why? Did they work
• Do you images fit your intentions? (refer to the genre and
use specific examples)
• How well do you images work within your overall layout
• What meaning and messages did you want to convey and
were you successful?
• Are you happy with your final piece? Are there any
elements you like in particular?
• Is there anything you would change? Why?

evaluations, what you should
include and how you can do this.
You have one minute to prepare and
one minute to present
• The rest of the session is an open
workshop. You must set a target which is
achievable within the time left. This could
be drafting the first part of your evaluation,
finalising research or planning one more
shoot… It is up to you but it must be achieved.
• Remember – achieved targets win
