Although many of the assessment objectives overlap, the outline may help you understand the marking procedure more effectively. Please use this whilst conducting your peer assessment.
AO1 looks at how well you carry out your initial research - the areas and sources you use as part of your research strategies
AO2 looks at extending your research - your personal interpretation - how you have developed your own response to research in the form of drawings, sketches, media experimentation and fabric samples
AO3 looks at developing your ideas - sampling, external work and extended fabric sampling
AO4 Looks at your Outcomes - how well you have personally responded to the project as a whole. You may not be able to fully respond to this Assesment objective in your Peer Assesment task at this stage.
General Assessment objectives
Grid of Assessment of objectives with marking breakdown - This is how you will be marked for Unit 2.
A reminder of what we were looking at during the last session of the term - Have you / Are you going to cover all these areas in your Unit of work.
Remember, in order to achieve a worthy grade, you should be.
If you have not, how will you ensure you can? ------------------------------------------------------------ Skills and Techniques
Candidates will be expected to demonstrate skills, as defined in Section 3.5 of this specification, in the context of their chosen area(s) of Textile Design. Candidates will be required to demonstrate skills in all of the following: • awareness of the elements of Textile Design, such as shape, colour, texture, pattern, harmony, contrast and/or repetition • appreciation of the relationship of form and function and, where applicable, the constraints of working to a brief • understanding of a variety of textile methods, such as fabric printing (mono-printing, relief printing and/or screen printing), tie-dye, batik, spraying, transfer and fabric construction and stitching (appliqué, patchwork, padding, quilting and/or embroidery).
Knowledge and Understanding
Candidates must show knowledge and understanding of: • how ideas, feelings and meanings can be conveyed and interpreted in images and artefacts created in the chosen area(s) of Textile Design • historical and contemporary developments and different styles and genres • how images and artefacts relate to social, environmental, cultural and/or ethical contexts, and to the time and place in which they were created • continuity and change in different styles, genres and traditions relevant to Textile Design • the working vocabulary and specialist terminology which is relevant to their chosen area(s) of Textile Design.
In Miss Dodd's absence, can you please ensure that you are progressing with Textile sampling in lesson and sketchbook development and refinement independently for homework. You should have a good body of textiles samples for peer reflection tomorrow in my lesson - remember I said approximately 20, but these should be considered of quality, rather than quantity, you have had 10 hours to develop these and your work should reflect this time allocation.
Having looked at your recorded information on your blog, some of you still need to update blogspots. Well done those of you who have recently updated successfully. Those of you who need to update fully, please do so before Friday 19th March as requested.
