Abstract

After a decade of professional practice within animation for film and TV I entered teaching, with no prior experience. At that point I considered myself to be a ‘visual’ learner. Thus I approached my first assessment procedure with some trepidation. In retrospect, I felt that a structure in the form of a diagram or visual aid would be beneficial to enable both students and novice teachers within art, media and design (ADM), essentially visual practices, to understand and design assessment procedures that accommodate creative input. This paper presents such a resource - the Creative Spiral - devised by the author, and the rationale behind it.
