Evaluating Your Work
1 Badge it
- Return to your previous evaluation on bournetolearn.com and take a screenshot of your progress ladders from your last evaluation (this may be the project from the previous year). Add this to your new document.
- Now, use the snipping tool and take a screenshot of your progress ladders as they are currently.
- Discuss your progress against the progress ladders when comparing them from this project to the last one (Comparing the 2 progress ladders):
- Have you made the progress you would like to have made?
- What curriculum area have you made the most progress since the last project in and why (from the previous progress ladder to this one)?
- Now explain why you think you have made the most progress in for this outcome.
- What curriculum area have you made the least progress since the last project in and why (from the previous progress ladder to this one)?
- Explain why you think you have made the least progress in this outcome?
- Now, explain how do you intend to improve on the outcome with the lowest points in your next project.
- For independent design project, identify and explain 2 badge tasks - silver gold or platinum, that you feel went very well (these can be any specific tasks in researching, designing, making or evaluating) e.g, Adding the dimensions to the housing in SolidWorks?
- Now identify 2 badge tasks - silver, gold or platinum, that you feel did not go well and why (these can be any specific tasks in researching, designing, making or evaluating) e.g, getting the multicore wires to go through the hole in the PCB?
- How would you improve on the above 2 badge tasks if you were to build the project again?
- Ask the person next to you to identify 2 badge tasks you could improve in the next project, this is known as stakeholder feedback.
- Reference to contextual challenge and specification.
- At the start of the project, we identified the contextual challenge (the problem that needs solving) and a specification (the list of criteria needed to solve the problem).
- Refer back to the contextual challenge at the start and discuss how well your product solves the problem.
- Refer back to the specification at the start and discuss each point, does your product fulfil all of the criteria? This is the evidence to prove that you have solved the contextual challenge.
