Assessment Criteria

Assessment for Units 1-3 / Assignments / Major Work

  • The class activities within the units of work are completed throughout the duration of the course this allows the student to maintain standards following the Visual Art course prescriptions guidelines of the Board of Studies core syllabus with Artmaking and Art History/Criticisms. 
  • Three Assignments will allow students to perform and to fulfill internal assessments set within the description of the each assignment. 
  • The Major work allows the student to exercise their strengths in performing their best artistic skill in a range of art forms. Students will chose to make comments on critical conceptual ideas that will challenge the audience intellectually making the viewer to think on many levels rather than one linear thought.
