Assessment Matrix

The purpose of the Assessment Matrix is to clearly show where each assessment for a unit or unit cluster is being assessed.  This is to be used by the teacher only and should be completed in the assessment planning phase.  This document needs to be kept for audit purposes and submitted to your Education Manager along with your other curriculum documentation.

Element 1. Research concept ideas

 

 

 

 

 

1.1. Identify and source references which may inform concept development

1.2. Critically analyse sources and references in the context of current work

1.3. Collect, collate and analyse references to inform concept development

Element 2. Generate concept

 

 

 

 

 

2.1. Develop a range of different, innovative and creative approaches for the concept based on the nature of own artistic practice

2.2. Reflect on and integrate ideas generated from research

2.3. Consider possible constraints for the concept, based on nature and purpose of work

2.4. Continuously reflect on and appraise ideas for the concept

2.5. Synthesise and refine concept based on research, reflection and relevant constraints

Element 3. Conduct critical discourse          

3.1. Identify relevant individuals to participate in critical discourse about work concepts

3.2. Identify potential ways in which discourse may be undertaken, and select the most appropriate

3.3. Provide key information on work concepts and concept development including influences, evaluation of options and problem-solving strategies

3.4. Use effective communication techniques to generate discussion, debate and critical analysis of the concept

Element 4. Adjust and refine concept          

4.1. Undertake own analysis of concept and challenge ideas and approaches taken

4.2. Seek input and comments from others about the concept

4.3. Re-evaluate and refine options for the concept based on own analysis and critical discourse with others

 

Critical Aspect of Evidence 

The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:

  • development of the concept through a process of selecting and critically analysing source material, then synthesising and refining the concept for own work
  • effective participation in a critical discourse about the concept for own work which shows a command of relevant references, terminologies and ideas

Required Skills & Knowledge

  • a wide range of sources of information pertaining to the development of the concept
  • in-depth appropriate communication methods to encourage critical discourse about the concept for own work
  • the theoretical and philosophical context for concept development
  • other artists/designers/curators/arts administrators and their development of concepts for their own work
  • thorough knowledge of the elements and principles of design and how they may be used in the development of the concept for own work
  • copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation which assist the development and
    critical discourse of the concept for own work
  • literacy skills sufficient to research and evaluate a wide range of source materials for the development of
    the concept for own work
  • literacy skills sufficient to conduct a critical discourse about the concept for own work

Element 1. Interpret the brief

 

 

   

 

1.1 Analyse the brief to determine overall exhibition concepts

1.2 Participate in preliminary concept meetings with appropriate personnel to discuss exhibition requirements

1.3 Identify all relevant factors which may determine and affect the design

1.4 Discuss and agree upon the role of the designer in the overall exhibition development

Element 2. Conduct and evaluate research

 

 

   

 

2.1 Assess the material to be exhibited in relation to the development of the design

2.2 Identify and source references which may inform the design process

2.3 Critically analyse sources and references in the context of the current design project

2.4 Consider the impacts and potential of new and emerging technologies to inform the design

2.5 Collect, collate and adapt materials to develop initial design concepts

Element 3. Generate and assess ideas          

3.1 Generate a range of ideas for the design which respond sympathetically to the brief and provide creative solutions to technical issues

3.2 Discuss ideas and collaborate with relevant personnel to ensure contribution of ideas to the initial concept

3.3 Continuously reflect on and appraise ideas for implications on cost and time, technical feasibility, and suitability to meet the brief

Element 4. Develop and document the
design
         

4.1 Hold ongoing discussions with relevant personnel so that additional or changed requirements and new ideas are considered and incorporated during the development of the design

4.2 Ensure that agreement is reached with relevant personnel in relation to consistent artistic interpretation
