Course Assessment.

Your work will be assessed on an ongoing basis throughout the course to support learning and evaluate progress.

Items of work might include:

  • practical work – such as producing 2D sketches or 3D models by hand or computer
  • project work – such as creating single page displays or layouts
  • written work – such as producing reports or written evaluations.

The course assessment for this course consists of two components:

  • question paper (80 marks)
  • assignment (40 marks).

For the assignment component, you will be asked to create a set of preliminary, production and promotional graphics in answer to a brief and produce evidence of how you planned and evaluated your work. The assignment component and question paper will be set by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and externally marked by them.

The course assessment is graded A-D.
