Project Assessment, Criterion B

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 B:
Old Name: Plan + Design
New Name: Developing Ideas

– Develop a Design Specification, clearly stating the success criteria for the design of the solution
– Develop a range of feasible ideas, which can be correctly interpreted by others
– Present the chosen design and justify its selection
– Develop accurate and detailed planning drawings/diagrams and outline the requirements for the creation of the chosen solution

 

Achievement Levels for Criterion B:

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 one basic success criterion for a solution
– presents one design idea, which can be interpreted by others
– creates an incomplete planning drawing/diagram

Achievement level 3-4:
The student:
– states a few success criteria for the solution.
– presents more than one design idea, using an appropriate medium or labels key features, which can be interpreted by others.
– states the key features of the chosen design.
– creates a planning drawing/diagram or lists the requirements for the creation of the chosen solution.

Achievement level 5-6:
The student:
– develops a few success criteria for the solution.
– presents more than one design idea, using an appropriate medium(s) or labels key features, which can be interpreted by others.
– states the key features of the chosen design.
– creates a planning drawing/diagram or lists requirements for the creation of the chosen solution.

Achievement level 7-8:
The student:
– develops a list of success criteria for the solution.
– presents feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and outlines the key features, which can be correctly interpreted by others.
– presents the chosen design describing the key features.
– creates a planning drawing/diagram, which outlines the main details for making the chosen solution.
