Project Assessment

Your final project for this year isn’t so much about the product itself, but about your process through it. Sure, we want it to look nice, but understanding documentation is more important right now.

You will need four total pieces of documentation- each one related to one of the four parts of the design cycle. Keep in mind, you need this documentation per group, not per person.

Part one:
Criterion A:
Old Name: Investigate
New Name: Inquiring & Analyzing

– Explain & justify the need for a solution to a problem for a specified client/audience
– Identify and prioritize primary & secondary research needed to develop a solution
– Analyze existing products that inspire a solution to the problem
– Develop a design brief, which includes a summary of the analysis of relevant research

 

Achievement Levels for Criterion A:

Previously, each criterion in Design/Tech went up to 6, but in the new MYP Criterions, all criterion in every subject is 8. It may be frustrating getting used to 8 in Design/Tech; however previously some subject had 6, some 8, some 10, and some it differed between their criterion. Overall, with every criterion in every subject being 8, it will end up being easier.

Achievement level 0:
The student:
– does not achieve at any level stated below.

Achievement level 1-2:
The student:
– states the need for a solution to a problem for a specified client/target audience.
– develops a basic design brief, which states the finding of relevant research.

Achievement level 3-4:
The student:
– outlines the need for a solution to a problem for a specified client/target audience.
– outlines a research plan, which identifies primary and secondary research needed to develop a solution to the problem, with some guidance.
– analyzes one existing product that inspires a solution to the problem.
– develops a basic design brief, which outlines the analysis of relevant research.

Achievement level 5-6:
The student:
– explains the need for a solution to a problem for a specified client/target audience.
– constructs a research plan, which identifies and prioritizes primary and secondary research needed to develop a solution to the problem, with some guidance.
– analyzes a range of existing products that inspires a solution to the problem.
– develops a design brief, which explains the analysis of relevant research.

Achievement level 7-8:
The student:
– explains and justifies the need for a solution to a problem for a specified client/target audience.
– constructs a detailed research plan, which identifies and prioritizes primary and secondary research needed to develop a solution to the problem, with some guidance.
– analyzes a range of existing products that inspires a solution to the problem.
– develops a detailed design brief, which summarizes the analysis of relevant research.
