Criterion D

Criterion D

For the next step, you need to evaluate your prototype.  How are you doing with getting it built?

Criterion D involves evaluating your prototype against your specifications from Criterion A.  If you haven't yet revised your criterion A, this would be a good time to do that, so you have a clear and accurate set of specifications.  Then use testing to determine the success of your prototype against each specification, note areas of weakness, and suggest further development that could be done on the design.

When you've finished your initial Criterion D, you're ready to click through.


Before you send Number 1 your Criterion you'll want to take another good hard look at the revised rubric & guideline sheet.

One of the revisions is a new column on the rubric, which allows you to record where, in your document, you've met the associated requirements.  When you turn in a draft section or Criterion, you'll be expected to turn in a copy of this form, too, with page numbers filled in.  For example, you'll need to turn in a copy of the "D: Evaluation" tab along with your Criterion D draft (a pdf copy of the page is fine).  In the pg# column, write down next to the checklist item where in your document that can be most clearly found.  (Hint: one page number per Pg# column isn't a top effort here, you need to indicate page numbers for each item in the checklist.)

Once you have those collected, go ahead and send them over to Number 1.

Ok, Visitor.  That's off for review.  Now it's time to get started on Criterion E: Commercial Production (if you're working at HL; if you're SL, it's time to start revising for your final draft).  Now that you have evaluated your prototype, you can build a good case for your ultimate design choices for the final production design.  I expect you to have this Criterion ready by February 16th, so get started now!
