Hello Joy, I am no expert so take my comments as someone who is still new to the game and still working it out myself. As for the exam, visual stimulus looks fine. I think you might have to rework your design criteria around what I call AIUSA or ‘Australia Invades the United States of America’. It’s an easy way to remember Aesthetic, Innovative, Useful, Sustainable, Accessible. They are the attributes the criteria need to address.
As for the project, words and terms like connectedness and school climate might bring you unstuck at endorsement under the Accessibility criteria regarding language. Could those words be regarded as specialist language that the average punter would not really understand? For example I am not overly familiar with the term ‘school climate’ and what that specifically means, so would students get it?
Same goes for a generic comment like connectedness. What does that specifically mean? (sorry, Im am just being the devil’s advocate here)
I will upload a checklist for you to run through. Print out your exam and project after you have entered it on the endorsement portal and then check it off on the list I sent. (which I copied off the portal)
Hope this helps Regards Mark:)
PS if you want to look at my average attempt at a submission then let me know
