Hydrominder

Chanelle Hosken

Annotation

“Chanelle has identified a genuine problem, (dehydration by failing to sip fluids on a regular basis) through her own experiences whilst participating in sport. She has then linked the identification to other users who may also experience a similar problem, through a detailed exploration of the problem.

The need was validated by secondary research where she utilised government statistics; and primary research that included surveys and interviews. Evidence of research is communicated concisely with results presented as charts and graphs that confirm the need. Chanelle then drew a conclusion focusing her future design development upon appropriate target groups.”

Examination Criteria

Project Proposal & Project Management: Identification and exploration of the need

Marking Guideline

Identifies and provides a detailed exploration of genuine needs and opportunities, justifying final selection for the development of the MDP

Stormwater Sentry

Oliver Dixon

Annotation

“Oliver justifies the selection of a range of evaluation criteria that are appropriate and relevant to his design project. For each criterion he analyses how he will determine its success, via testing, and also the impact if the criteria is not achieved. Oliver succinctly communicates these effectively via the use a table format.”

Examination Criteria

Minder

Austin Marandos

Annotation

“Austin has demonstrated creativity in the development of his ideas as well as his final design. He has explored a range of possible solutions that have been clearly communicated via annotated rough sketches/CAD diagrams and flow charts of how each idea will function, or perform its function. Each concept is evaluated and leads to further action and design development.

Further to this, Austin has explored existing designs and has utilised cognitive organisers to determine the positive and negative aspects of each. Austin concludes this section by analysing existing designs and indicating how his final design solution will differ from those currently available.”

Examination Criteria

Project Development and Realisation: Evidence of creativity – ideas generation, degree of difference and exploration of existing ideas

Marking Guideline

Demonstrates the substantial application of creativity in the development of the MDP

Stormwater Sentry

Oliver Dixon

Annotation

“Oliver has demonstrated throughout his design project and via the final solution, substantial creativity and innovation. He has explored a range of existing design solutions and considered both the positive and negative aspects for each. Oliver has successfully utilised cognitive organisers, such as a PMI, to help him to clarify his design ideas and strengthen his design development. Oliver has incorporated a range of annotated rough sketches which demonstrate clearly and succinctly the design development undertaken and the degree of difference from alternative solutions. His design ideas have been explored further via the use of design modelling, incorporating CAD drawings and experimentation.”

Industria – The Solar Bag

Sarah Hassett

Annotation

Design Brief: to design a bag that incorporates solar energy, batteries and wireless charging to power mobile devices whilst ‘on the go’

“Sarah has undertaken a comprehensive range of appropriate research, experimentation and testing of design solutions which clearly relates to her identification of a need. This included materials, for example, solar panel testing for suitability and strength; appropriate tools including laser cutter and graphic tools; and techniques such as embossing of logo and brand name. All research and testing was justified in relation to the design brief and provided direction for further action. Sarah communicated the aim, method and results of her research and experimentation clearly, and then applied the conclusions drawn, to the next step or final design solution. Evidence of testing has been provided via samples of results or photographic detail.”

Examination Criteria

Project Development and Realisation: Appropriate Research and Experimentation of materials, tools, techniques and testing of design solutions

Marking Guideline

Undertakes, evaluates and applies a range of appropriate research, experimentation and design solution testing to the MDP

Safety nesting box installation system

Matilda Trebilcock

Annotation

“Matilda has undertaken a range of evaluation processes throughout the proposal, development and realisation of her MDP. As the design process evolved Matilda used evaluation to validate decisions and provide direction for further action. She utilised colour coding to emphasise when evaluation was undertaken and conclusions drawn.”

Examination Criteria

Project Evaluation: Recording and application of evaluation procedures throughout the design project

Marking Guideline

Critically evaluates aspects of the PSE throughout its entire development

Retractable Skateboard Helmet

Nasim Ponrahmary-Dominguez

Annotation

“Nasim has undertaken a detailed evaluation of the functional and aesthetic aspects of her Major Design Project, clearing linking these to the Criteria to Evaluate Success identified in the Project Proposal. Nasim has utilised a ranking system to analyse each criteria, indicating whether it has been achieved, partly achieved or not achieved.

The evaluation has been supported by evidence, with reference to government regulations and the results of research, experimentation and testing. Both positive and negative features of the design solution have been considered with improvements suggested that could be incorporated if produced commercially in the future.”

Examination Criteria

Project Evaluation: Analysis and evaluation of functional and aesthetic aspects of the design

Marking Guideline

Analyses and critically evaluates the functional and aesthetic aspects of the PSE
