Nate and I plan to keep in mind the following guidelines when rethinking the evaluation system:
- Design Studio is still a class - which means the new system must be able to assign a reasonable grade to each student.
- We need to focus on improvement - If a student is learning and applying course material, then they will show improvement.
- Students should work on their projects as much as possible, so there needs to be low overhead in an improved evaluation system.
Later tonight, we will post a review of the current evaluation system and the road map for the rest of the week. Please leave comments - we want to hear as many different viewpoints as possible.
