Abstract

This paper examines the Assessment and Feedback aspects of Studio Teaching as Creative Arts pedagogy. Prompted by USQ’s newly offered Bachelor of Creative Arts (BCA), the author has developed an Assessment Matrix specifically designed to satisfy a number of imperatives, including:

• ‘objectifying’ the subjective aspects of creative practice as assessable coursework/research
• providing the means by which accurate, detailed, personalised and confidential feedback may be provided to students individually
• providing consistent, accurate, meaningful assessment records for student, lecturer, and institution
• ensuring consistency, continuity, and transparency of assessment processes and records to satisfy quality audits
• minimising marking and assessment time, whilst maximising assessment integrity and depth
• requiring only basic level skills and knowledge of a computer application already in common use (Microsoft Excel)
• adaptability to a range of creative courses - across disciplines.
