Using SOLO to structure Final Evaluation Questions

My NCEA Design and Visual Communication are up to evaluating their final poster designs. I looked at the support I had included on the class site for this and decided it was not good enough. The students are nearly there with their project and I didn't want them to fall at the final hurdle for want of an evaluation that was lacking depth.
I decided to structure the questions in the evaluation around SOLO so that when they write it, they have a gradually increasing level of depth.
