FROM THE ARCHIVE - Making marks: assessment in art and design

Making marks: assessment in art and design
Susan Orr, York St John University

This article offers a brief overview of key points emerging from Susan Orr’s research into art and design lecturers’ assessment practices. She has worked in this area for some years and has carried out a range of interview-based and observation-based studies across more than eight universities. In this article she discusses the ways lecturers assess identities, artistic practices and artwork holistically. Her key point is that art and design assessment is best understood as an artful practice - indeed it might be likened to a form of connoisseurship.
