Grading Studio Work

October 25, 2012

Bruce Mau Design for Canada in the 21st century. 

How do you evaluate—grade?— art and design work?

Here are two articles for your reference.

Grading Art, College The Easy Way

The criteria and issues that stand out for me are:

1. skill to describe/articulate and frame a design question or problem verbally, visually or via some other form

2. participation in the studio and contribution to the studio culture

3. ability to transform ideas and rough concepts; to develop, refine, and communicate

4. curiosity and willingness to experiment/explore/discover and to synthesize knowledge from this process

5. mastery of materials and craft in completing project (to the level required)

6. synergy and aesthetics – create forms and relationships – to put things together with a level of completeness and in an engaging manner appropriate to the project

7.  production of a body of work that demonstrates your design  process and communicates what is interesting about the work by embedding your vision (argument, interests, questions) in the work itself.
