List of comments:
- Through its combination of text, drawings and images, this poster represents both visual and textual research about a single material. In this way, the student has demonstrated their depth of understanding by clearly and accurately outlining the material's properties, experiential qualities, applications and construction details.
- Overall, the poster provides a clear visual design. There is a good balance of text, sources, examples and illustrations. The images are in line with the overall grid-lines of poster and text blocks. However, the text blocks should have a consistent width and are at times too wide, which makes reading difficult.
- This comprehensive list of the material's properties demonstrates the student's understanding and synthesis of relevant information. Dot points are acceptable within a poster format. As an alternative to full sentences, dot points provide a simple and visually accessible way of structuring information.
- These evocative descriptions illustrate the experiential qualities of the material and the effects they have on one’s interpretation of space.
- This section features long quotations. If you decide to incorporate a lengthy quote, ensure that you interpret it and discuss its meaning and/or significance. By doing this, you will be able to achieve a balance between the words of others and your own voice. You'll also be able to demonstrate your analytical and critical thinking skills.
- An effective use of footnotes, but Chicago referencing conventions are not followed correctly here.
- Usually the term Bibliography is used. However, within a poster format, it may be acceptable to use Sources. It is a good idea to clarify this with your tutor.
The list demonstrates good research drawn from a range of sources, including books, journals and websites. However, not all the Chicago referencing conventions are followed correctly. See how to reference with Chicago in the Citing and referencing Library guide.
- Hand drawings and images provide effective illustrative examples.
- The 'Experiential qualities' and 'Innovative applications' sections demonstrate evidence of research.
- Captions should appear below the images and provide relevant details about the work.
- The writing here is clear and succinct, avoiding excess wording. The visual analysis describes how the material's properties are being brought out in a way that is profound and unconventional.
- The table format provides a clear overview of relevant information about the material. Within the table, the student has effectively summarised and prioritised key points based on the appropriate selection and evaluation of information.
