- Clear presentations outlining the rational and context of the project – including references to appropriate literature and/or statistics to back up the need for the project
- Explanation of the methods used, why they were chosen, how they worked and the insights gained.
- A range of prototypes produced in appropriate fidelity.
- Excellent project management (which also correlated with well written up tutorial notes with clear objectives set by the student)
- Presentations done unapologetically and without notes, demonstrating that the presented fully understood their research question and the strengths
- Regularly maintained blog.
- Confidence with material.
What didn’t work:
- Assuming prior knowledge of project
- Using specialist or particular terms without defining them
- Text heavy slides
- Reading verbatim from notes (indicates lack of confidence in material)
- Describing what you did without explaining what you discovered
- lack of clarity about future direction
