Grading and Evaluation

Grading process

During Bio Academy, you will learn how to envision, prototype and document your ideas through many hours of hands-on experience. You will work weekly in short term assignments and complete the course with a Final Project mixing and blending all the acquired knowledge. You will be evaluated mainly based on your website, where you will document your work through out the cycle. So it is important that you incorporate from the beginning the habit of documenting your processes, both success and failure.
The evaluation process is constantly ongoing and has many layers. You will be evaluated for:

  • the assignments (what you’ll do)
  • what we want you to learn each week (why you’re doing it)
  • the base-line evidence/proof/things you need to show what you’ve learned each week (what you did and how you did it).
