*5.2.3 Integrated Summative Assessment: Graduate Project/Thesis (Trimester 6)
The fourth and final integrated assessment is held at the end of trimester 6. At this juncture students are expected to prepare and deliver a formal presentation of their finished Graduation Project and related graduation thesis. Passing this integrated formative assessment allows the ECTS for fifth and sixth terms to be awarded.
The Graduation Project should demonstrate the insights and experiences gained throughout the program and to translate their implications into individual work and working methods. In this process, students are expected to be able to not only produce new work, but also to develop a strong sense of the criteria that are crucial for the evaluation and development of their own creative work.
**Assessment Criteria for a Graduation Project
The graduation project should result in a presentation of new work, that combined with the thesis demonstrates the student’s attainment of the agreed learning outcomes (as laid out in the Course hand book Section 3.2 ). In this way the programmes’ agreed Final Competencies from the basis of the Assessment Criteria for a Graduation Project at a Master level.
*Creative ability: They have developed the independent learning ability required to create innovative, challenging, significant, and coherent projects that are based on clearly articulated approaches and intention.
*Capacity to conduct self-directed research: They can identify relevant subject matter, questions, and formulate distinct areas of research.
*Research methodologies: They can harness skills of research, analysis and synthesis to the development of creative projects.
*Technical fluency: They can demonstrate an analytical grasp of the underlying technical and conceptual principles of practices relevant to their field and work.
*Organisational skills: They have the capacity to design, manage and execute effectively, complex and creative projects on their own or in collaboration with others, which bring together original combinations of media forms. Capacity for innovation: They have developed flexible work practices that can be employed in a wide variety of production contexts and have the technical conceptual skills for dealing with new forms and unforeseen challenges.
*Critical reflection and awareness of context: They can critically reflect on relevant issues related to a larger social context and make informed decisions about the positioning of their work and methods of production. This critical reflection should be expressed through both practice, and verbal analysis of intention: reflections on process and creative output.
*Communication skills: They can communicate their intention, context, process and perceived results– with clear written and oral descriptions to both experts and general audiences.
**Assessment Procedure Integrated Assessments:
*As described above, all the integrated assessments, both formative and summative, involve a formal presentation to a
panel of tutors across both the specialisations of the course and chaired by the Course Director. This allows a check that there is a consensus across the department as to the level of achievement of each student and acts as a check on the individual tutors marking the module summative assessments.
Prior to the assessment process you must archive documentation and elements of the work and research you wish to submit for examination. We will not pass people who have not delivered appropriate documentation of their work on time. See http://pzwiki.wdka.nl/mediadesign/Archive_Protocol for archiving instructions.
**6.2 Internal and external checks on the assessment procedure that ensure that the quality of the system of is effectively monitored:
The level, clarity and fairness of assessments are gauged through a matrix of checks and balances that occur on multiple levels from students, to staff, externals and the Exam Board. These mechanisms can be seen as an ecology of monitoring devices where if one system fails, another should catch the problem and plans made for rectification. The department utilises the following types of internal and external checks on the assessment procedure.
