Achievement Objective: Outcome development and evaluation
Critically analyse their own and others’ outcomes and evaluative practices to inform the development of ideas for feasible outcomes. Undertake a critical evaluation that is informed by ongoing experimentation and functional modelling, stakeholder feedback, and trialling in the physical and social environments. Use the information gained to select, justify, and develop an outcome. Evaluate this outcome’s fitness for purpose against the brief. Justify the evaluation, using feedback from stakeholders and demonstrating a critical understanding of the issue.
Achievement Standard: AS91342
The students have been drawing their design developments for their Product Design project.
We have been doing analysis exercises together on the class Google Plus Communities.

The students now need to start analysing their own design work.
They can use this feedback from others to start them off if they want to.
Reflection and Analysis
What went well?
The students were really respectful of each other’s work and provided some useful feedback.
They used the same format as the exercise that we did as it was the next day so it was fresh in their mind.
Some scanning of the vocabulary links was done and helped the students who did do it.
They are getting better at giving suggestions when we sit together as a whole group at the start of the lesson - no answer is a wrong answer!
What needs work?
They seem to still be a bit shy at writing their thoughts in the comment section under the pictures. I told them to just do word lists or bullet points. Focus on the analysis not the sentences. Again it is the English structure that is holding them back in confidence.
I need to provide sentence starters in future to give them the confidence to just put their thoughts down and not worry about anything else.
