Design-Based Learning (DBL) as method of teaching is broadly
accepted. However, there is much debate about the method used to assess the
outcome and the design process. Reflection on the process as well as on the
contents is extremely important in DBL. Since reflection has to be learnt as part
of learning how to design too, an evaluation method has been developed that is
suitable for evoking abundant feedback to students. The method, called Evaluation
Assessment Carousel, is used for individuals as well as design teams and allows
(many) guest critics to be involved. The Evaluation Assessment Carousel may
be used for informal mid-term evaluations, but also for formal final presentations
that are meant for formative marks of design assessments. This document
describes briefly the method and explains how this is used in different set ups.
