Assessment Presentation format:
- 20 minutes: initial student presentation. ZOOM allows you to share your desktop. So any format that works on your desktop can be shared with the panel.
- 5 minutes: the panel can ask questions regarding the material presented both orally and in advance.
- 5 Minutes: we ask the student to leave, so the panel can discuss their research and presentation
- 10 minutes: the panel will discuss with the student their research and give feedback.
- The External Examiner will be present throughout the panel hearings and discussions via video chat.
- please upload your graduation project documentation and thesis if having had to re-submit here by 10:00 Thursday 25: https://hrnl.sharepoint.com/sites/WdKA-XPub/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?csf=1&e=y5gqRO&cid=c12ee761%2Da3e9%2D43c0%2D93ed%2Dcabf54422490&FolderCTID=0x012000AC5464400751B44F88C88D1B1D3AE042&viewid=e14ca528%2D7cdc%2D46e3%2Dbabb%2Dc8a8797f2268&id=%2Fsites%2FWdKA%2DXPub%2FShared%20Documents%2FLB%2DXPUB%2DArchive%2FMFAD%5Ftrim1%2D6%5FStudent%5FWork%5FArchive%5F2018%2D2020%2FLB%2FWDK12M%2DMAM%2DV4%5F49114%5F99%2DMMDV%5FLB%5Ftrim6%5F2018%2D2020

Assessment adaptations in relation to COVID- 19; the formal description of how the range of work presented has been modified for this year’s online exam.
As usual, it is expected students will have an overall presentation of the work and research throughout the two years in the programme, namely:
- 1. Individually researched and created lens-based works across the 2 years program
- 2. the development of the students reading/writing practice,
- 3. the development of the students prototyping practice,
- 4. Students thesis (for the thesis we only expect a brief overview for context, as this is assessed separately in more depth), and
- 5. Final work and research across the second year.
However, due to the current situation that has significantly impaired the material means to produce a definitive final work and possibly affected its associated research, we offer three options to present and discuss point 5.
These options will significantly determine the final form and content of each students second-year graduation work:
- Option 1: FULL EXECUTION. The work and research were unaffected, or barely affected by the situation, it is therefore presented and made available in the same conditions as originally planned.
- Option 2: PARTIALLY COMPLETE EXECUTION: The work and research were partly affected by the situation; it was therefore necessary to adapt it into a more suitable format and possibly change plans to replace some components with more suitable ones. For instance: a part of the work involved access making images in specific locations that are now closed, or for which the “1.5m rules” makes it impossible to follow the original plan. However other aspects of the work have been less affected.
- Option 3: EXECUTION DELAYED BY COVID 19 The work and research were fully affected by the situation; simply put it’s not possible to finalize the work and research in any way. As a result, what is presented are: the original concept, the process so far, the thorough documentation of sketches and prototypes, and possible future developments.
During the Assessment students will be asked to explain which strategy of combination of strategies they have chosen. The range of work they show must meet the standard assessment criteria as described in the handbook.

- 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.
