DESIGN SOLUTION

The design solution is not generated by previous ideas, testing theories, creating artifacts or solving problems.

The design solution attempts to solve a problem, but the problem is vague and/or broad.

The design solution is developed from to solve a problem, previous ideas, testing theories, creating artifacts or solving problems. The design solution is broad.

The design solution is developed to solve a problem, represent ideas, test theories, or create artifacts. The design solution is poignant to the problem. The design solution is focused and feasible.

GLOBAL COLLABORATOR

Jump to the problem and solution without researching, interviewing or collaborating.

Come to broad problem and solutions with limited amount of research, interviews and collaboration.

Come to multiple solutions with research, interviews and collaboration.

Able to narrow down broad topics to a single problem and a potential solution through research, interviews and collaboration.

RE-INNOVATION

Develops a single prototype/models as part of a design process but does not test or reflect on refinements.

Develops a  prototype/ models as part of a design process, has ideas for redevelopment based on reflection, but does not know how to adjust the refinements to be workable under the confinements of time and resources.

Develops a  prototype/ models as part of a design process, tests and trials prototype and redevelopments prototype based on results. Able to clearly articulate a thoughtful plan with refinements based on results of testing, but does not have the resources or time to reconstruct prototype.

Develops a prototype/ models as part of a design process, tests and trials prototype and redevelopments prototype based on results. Successfully adjusts the refinements to be workable under the confinements of time and resources.
