Assignment 08.02: Client Driven Design Project


The goal of this project is to the stu­den­t’s per­for­mance on a client dri­ven project as assigned by the course instructor.


The objec­tive of this assign­ment is to pro­vide an assess­ment of the stu­den­t’s efforts on an assigned client dri­ven project. This assign­ment cor­re­lates with the WPA-AGRD-Client Dri­ven Design Project.

Background Reading


The assign­ment is sim­ple in prin­ci­ple, but com­plex in appli­ca­tion. To com­plete the assign­ment, you must par­tic­i­pate in the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of all assigned projects. As the projects become com­plex and over­lap with other projects, the abil­ity to orga­nize one’s time and efforts is chal­leng­ing. To that end, proper use of the course project man­age­ment site, cal­en­dars and stor­age space is essen­tial. Assess­ment for this assign­ment is based on instruc­tor’s obser­va­tions and peer eval­u­a­tions when needed, with appro­pri­ate dis­tinc­tions for project com­pli­ca­tions and circumstances.

Part One

The class is orga­nized into groups. Project man­agers are also assigned based on pre­vi­ous per­for­mance, strengths and inter­ests. New stu­dents are orga­nized into project based groups as appro­pri­ate to the class makeup.

Part Two

The course instruc­tor will meet with project man­agers to dis­cuss details, dead­lines and arti­facts related to each project. Project man­agers are respon­si­ble for keep­ing a time record of all projects, col­lect­ing nec­es­sary mate­ri­als and proofs for archiv­ing, meet­ing dead­lines and proper com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the client, the instruc­tor and other students.

Stu­dents are required to log time spent work­ing on projects, pro­duce assigned mate­ri­als as requested, fol­low archival pro­ce­dures, meet dead­lines and com­mu­ni­cate with the instruc­tor and project managers.

The course web­site is acces­si­ble after com­ple­tion of Exer­cise 01.01: Stu­dent Con­tact Infor­ma­tion. Stu­dents are to use the tem­plates and instruc­tions pro­vided to pro­duce, label, orga­nize and store the var­i­ous pro­duc­tion design solu­tions and work­ing documents.

Part Three

A project eval­u­a­tion is made upon the com­ple­tion of each assigned project. Eval­u­a­tions are made in con­sul­ta­tion with stu­dents, both appren­tice and project man­ager, but based pri­mar­ily on the instruc­tor’s per­spec­tive. A final review of the semes­ter’s work will serve to form the final assess­ment score.
