10 9-8 7 6 or less Design Brief states the problem and lists the
specifications for design. Constraints are the
limits that often relate to resources, such as what
kind of materials the designer can use, the cost of
the final product and the time required. Other
limitations often relate to the number and skill
requirements of workers and the effects on the
10 9-8 7 6 or less Generate possible solutions- Sketch and Label. Most problems have more than one solution. You should always develop many design ideas even though you may want to grab onto the first idea that comes into your head. 10 9-8 7 6 or less Select & Justify your best solution. Fits within the desgn constraints and has the least number of negative characteristics . Good design solutions are those that work well, are cost efficient, and cause minimal or no harm to the envirornment or to people. They meet ALL of the design requirements and are within all constraints. 10 9-8 7 6 or less Impliment the Solution Build (Describe this process in paragraph form) During the design process, drawing and modeling of the proposed solution are made in order to work out any design problems before the product is put into production. 10 9-8 7 6 or less Total: 50 points

Student used research, problem solving and critical thinking to generate many original and innovative ideas. Several preliminary sketches were used to produce a final set of working drawings. Student did some research, attempted to problem solve and use critical thinking to generate original thought. A preliminary sketch was used to generate a final working drawing. Student relied on other students' research, lacked original ideas and relied on other students' sketches and plans to produce a final working drawing. Student did not do any research, used ready-to-use plans from instructor or other source and required step-by-step instruction. Student showed showed no evidence of having done any planning. Process
