Introduction

This exemplar demonstrates the application of the Assessment Criteria to a portfolio of work. The exemplar
includes a set of photographs, followed by a commentary. The commentary explains how the marks have
been awarded for each Assessment Objective by referring to qualities evidenced in the candidate’s work.
Suggestions as to how the work could be improved are also included.

Guidance on applying the Unit Assessment Criteria

General Guidance on applying the Assessment Criteria for each unit is given in Section 23.2 of the
specification. This is repeated below and explains how teachers should use the Assessment Criteria grids
when assessing candidates’ work.

When assessing candidates’ work, teachers/assessors should consider the level of attainment demonstrated in
four broad areas within the demands and context of the specific unit being assessed:
• the depth and breadth of understanding;
• the level of skills;
• the level of synthesis, analysis and evaluation;
• the level of independence and originality.
In the Assessment Criteria for each unit, mark ranges are specified for each Assessment Objective. When
assessing a candidate’s portfolio of work, teachers/assessors should use their professional judgement to
identify, for each Assessment Objective, the mark band description within which that work falls and then the
mark within that range that best describes the depth and quality of the work.

To achieve the higher mark bands, candidates should show greater depth and breadth of understanding,
higher level skills, higher level of synthesis, analysis and evaluation and higher levels of independence and
originality as required in the Assessment Criteria, to achieve the higher mark band descriptions.

Work that clearly meets all the requirements of the mark band description should be awarded the maximum
mark identified. Aspects of the work that might fall short of meeting, in full, the description but which do
not, in the judgement of the teacher/assessor sufficiently influence the overall level of achievement to merit
the work being assigned to a lower mark band, will reduce the mark awarded within the identified range
available.

This can be expressed as identifying the ‘best fit’ approach, where the areas of strength in the work
submitted by the candidate can be allowed to compensate for weaknesses in other areas.

Further information and guidance on the application of the Assessment Criteria will be provided at annual
Standardising Meetings and in the Teachers’ Guide to accompany this specification.

Unit 2: Investigation of 3D Visual Language


You need to produce a portfolio of selected work which must include:
• studies in each of the disciplines of art, craft and design that demonstrate a breadth of experimentation and
development with materials, techniques and processes; (AO2 (a), AO2 (b))
• how others apply 3D media and techniques; (AO1)
• an understanding of the inter-related use of formal elements; (AO2 (a), AO2 (b), AO3)
• vocationally considered work related to one of the disciplines of art, craft or design that shows your ability to
experiment with 3D making techniques and processes; (AO2 (a), AO2 (b), AO3)
• research and development work that demonstrates the depth of your knowledge and understanding; (AO2 (a))
