Self-Assessment Sheet by Christine Zoller
Associate Professor and Textile Area Coordinator for
East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.
In looking at your work, whether in progress or completed, take the time to ask yourself the following questions in order to look at the work with a critical eye:
- What are the objectives I have set up for myself in completing this work?
- Look at the major elements within the piece and ascertain whether they are playing a critical role within the work and if the message they are saying is being heard.
- Set yourself outside the piece if possible; what are the emotional responses you are having?
- What is the best part of the work? What could be changed?
- How does this work affect future pieces? Is this piece the first of many or was all that was to be said accomplished in this work?
- Look at all the elements of design in this piece and critique it using each one: Line, Shape, Space, Form, Texture, Value and Color
- Look at all the principles of design in this piece and critique it using each one: Repetition, Variety, Rhythm/Movement, Balance, Emphasis, and Dominance
- Do the methods being used work for the concept?
In conclusion, does the work successfully complete all the objectives set forth in the beginning? Did the concept change along the way and was this a good thing?
