Evaluation - the 3-step process:

 

The key to deeper thinking is evaluation, with the 3 step process all students can achieve this.

 

The application and textbook both teach students a simple process for evaluation. The clear colour-coded icons reinforce the process and enable students to easily evaluate the art and designs of others, and then ultimately to their own work using subject specific vocabulary.

 

Evaluation is a skill required across all Art and Design curriculums and the 3-step system can be applied in many situations and across a range of different curriculums and examination systems allowing students to easily write about design in depth.

 

Students follow 3 simple steps to evaluate:

Step 1: Describe.
What is the feature of the design?

Step 2: Explain.
How has the feature been used or added?

Step 3: Justify.

Why has the feature been used or added?
