Design Cycle

In our Product and Digital Design subject we follow the Design Cycle to work on our projects. This cycle allows us to research, investigate, analyse, sketch, develop ideas, create a plan, create a solution to any challenges, test our products, evaluate our work, get and give feedback.

To further know about how the grading system works with the Design Cycle, here is a simple list:

For this criterion the student will be:

  • analysing the problem at hand 
  • explaining and justifying a need for a solution for it
  • developing a research

  • Developing a plan for the project

B- Developing ideas.

For this criterion the student will be:

  • Developing a sketch/s for the product

  • Present the final sketch in a drawing

C- Creating a solution.

For this criterion the student will be:

  • Follow the plan made
  • Justify any changes made
  • Demonstrate great self and time management skills
  • Demonstrate great technical skills

D- Evaluating.

For this criterion the student will be:
