Bii Design MYP Criterion B Strand II

How to get a score of 8

Assessment Criterion B

ii. develops a range of feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and detailed annotation, which can be correctly interpreted by others

  • Designs are developed over time in an iterative fashion. Students should record their iterative development through design sketching, modelling, refining and testing. This is all part of design development.

  • Start with loads of initial ideas - brainstorm ideas of potential solutions.

  • Choose a medium and produce several visuals that communicate a range of design ideas - here are some mediums to choose from:

    • Text - explain your ideas in bullet points or paragraphs

    • Two-point perspective sketch

    • Isometric &/or orthographic projection

    • Sectional views &/or exploded drawings

    • Part and assembly drawings

    • Prototypes

    • Three-dimensional CAD models

    • Storyboards

    • Flow-chart

  • Annotate each design idea to communicate your thinking with detailed annotation - (i.e. use your design specification list to guide you):

    • ​size and shape of components and overall

    • materials

    • how the components fit together to create the whole

    • tools and equipment

    • aesthetics (colour, texture, shape, form, line, balance, finish)

    • how the user will interact with the solution (ergonome)

  • Detailed Annotations - identify a key component then use the word "because" or "like" or “for example”

  • Each idea should be understood easily by a 3rd party and be a feasible solution to the initial problem (get a friend to look at your work.. to see if they understand your ideas and check if your ideas are feasible solutions)

Differentiation & Assessment


Criterion B Strand ii

0 >> The student does not reach a standard described by any of the descriptors

1-2 >> The student presents one design, which can be interpreted by others

3-4 >> The student presents a few feasible designs, using an appropriate medium(s) or annotation, which can be interpreted by others

5-6 >> The student develops a range of feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and annotation, which can be interpreted by others

7-8 >> The student develops a range of feasible design ideas, using an appropriate medium(s) and detailed annotation, which can be correctly interpreted by others

Criterion B Differentiation

ii. The student presents (one --> a few feasible --> a range of feasible) design(s) using an appropriate medium(s) (or --> and) annotation, which can be interpreted by others
