08 Design Assessment Criteria

MYP Year 2 Design: Assessment Criteria

Criterion A

3A Needs identification Research planning Inspiration analysed Design brief
1-2 states the need for a solution to a problem states some of the main findings of relevant research
3-4 outlines the need for a solution to a problem states the research needed to develop a solution to the problem, with some guidance outlines one existing product that inspires a solution to the problem develops a basic design brief, which outlines some of relevant research
5-6 explains the need for a solution to a problem constructs a research plan, which states and prioritizes the primary and secondary research needed to develop a solution to the problem, with some guidance describes a group of similar products that inspire a solution to the problem develops a design brief, which outlines the findings of relevant research
7-8 explains and justifies the need for a solution to a problem constructs a research plan, which states and prioritizes the primary and secondary research needed to develop a solution to the problem independently analysis a group of similar products that inspire a solution to the problem develops a design brief, which presents the analysis of relevant research.

Criterion B

3B Design specification Design options presented Design selection rationale Design elaboration
1-2 lists a few basic success criteria for the design of a solution presents one design idea, which can be interpreted by others creates incomplete planning drawings/diagrams.
3-4 constructs a list of the success criteria for the design of a solution presents a few feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) or explains describes key features, which can be interpreted by others outlines the main reasons for choosing the design with reference to the design specification creates planning drawings/diagrams or lists requirements for the chosen solution.
5-6 develops design specifications, which identify explains the success criteria for the design of a solution presents a range of feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and explains key features, which can be interpreted by others presents the chosen design and outlines the main reasons for its selection with reference to the design specification develops accurate planning drawings/diagrams and lists requirements for the creation of the chosen solution.
7-8 develops a design specification which outlines justifies the success criteria for the design of a solution based on the data collected presents a range of feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and annotation, which can be correctly interpreted by others presents the chosen design and outlines the reasons for its selection with reference to the design specification develops accurate planning drawings/diagrams and outlines requirements for the creation of the chosen solution.

Criterion C

3C Time and resource planning Technical skills Functionality and presentation Changes justified
1-2 demonstrates minimal technical skills when making the solution creates the solution, which functions poorly and is presented in an incomplete form
3-4 outlines each step in a plan that contains some details, resulting in peers having difficulty following the plan to create the solution demonstrates satisfactory technical skills when making the solution creates the solution, which partially functions and is adequately presented outlines changes made to the chosen design or plan when making the solution.
5-6 constructs a plan, which considers time and resources, sufficient for peers to be able to follow to create the solution demonstrates competent technical skills when making the solution creates the solution, which functions as intended and is presented appropriately outlines describes changes made to the chosen design and plan when making the solution.
7-8 constructs a logical plan, which outlines the efficient use of time and resources, sufficient for peers to be able to follow to create the solution demonstrates excellent technical skills when making the solution follows the plan to create the solution, which functions as intended and is presented appropriately explains changes made to the chosen design and plan when making the solution.

Criterion D

3D Testing methods Success of the solution Improvements possible Impact
1-2 describes a testing method, which is used to measure the success of the solution states the success of the solution.
3-4 describes a relevant testing method, which generates data, to measure the success of the solution outlines the success of the solution against the design specification based on relevant product testing lists the ways in which the solution could be improved outlines the impact of the solution on the client/target audience.
5-6 describes relevant testing methods, which generate data, to measure the success of the solution describes the success of the solution against the design specification based on relevant product testing outlines how the solution could be improved describes the impact of the solution on the client/target audience, with guidance.
7-8 describes detailed and relevant testing methods, which generate accurate data, to measure the success of the solution explains the success of the solution against the design specification based on authentic product testing describes how the solution could be improved describes explains the impact of the solution on the client/target audience.
