Project Grading Criteria (project is worth 40%):
All 5 criteria have equal weight.
- This is about the ambition and scope of your project, aside from how
well it was executed.
- Have you done something novel? Something we didn't expect?
- Is it a creative idea or a creative solution to a problem?
- Does it work?
- Is it well-crafted?
- Do the mappings make sense?
- Is it easy to learn or does it allow performers to develop virtuosity?
- Did you achieve your own goals?
- Is it beautiful in some way? Could be the sounds, physical form,
performance, or all of the above.
- Is it elegant or just functional?
Brief write-up/self evaulation
Each student *must* send
firstname.lastname@example.org a write-up for
your project by
Saturday, December 8. The submission can be common
among your group and are compatible with submissions to the NIME demonstrations: In addition, each student should
send us the following:
- Once it is complete and assembled, have you considered what it can do?
- Have you effectively demonstrated your project's capabilities?
NOTE: We are *not* looking for flashy or lengthy
powerpoint slides. Your project should ideally speak for itself. You
may want to tell a story, put on a show or involve the audience, and
some visual aids may be appropriate, but figure out a way for the
project to be the star of the show.
Note: No file attachments to the email

description and evaulation of your own contribution (e.g. effort, ideas,
teamwork) to the project.
- An evaluation of your group's dynamics
and effort. We're not looking for whistle-blowing, airing dirty laundry,
or finger-pointing. But we want to know how well you worked as a team, how
everyone contributed, and what, if anything, could have been done to make
your project better.
