How to assess

The NC has been developed to facilitate flexible delivery and integrate learning and assessment. A holistic approach to the delivery and assessment of the award is recommended, where possible.

Assessment is intended to be practical in nature, reflecting the nature of the interior design and architectural professions.

Peer assessment is an important feature of the assessment strategy as architecture is a career within the public domain and the use of critique both informs and develops an architect’s style.

There are opportunities for theory-based topics to be assessed by multiple-choice online assessments with the use of multimedia technologies (eg video capture and interactive learning).
