Assessment criteria

The course is evaluated on a scale excellent (5), very good (4), good (3), satisfactory (2), fair (1), fail (0). The assessment criteria is presented on a scale 1 – 3 – 5.

Assessment criteria – grade 1

  • The student has limited understanding of 3D and Blender. Meshes created are very simple and texturing is rudimentary.
  • The student has satisfactory skills to produce small, textured meshes and rendered scenes in Blender.
  • The student shows satisfactory activity and initiative in learning process.

Assessment criteria – grade 3

  • The student knows partly the Blender application. Meshes created are more complex and have good texturing.
  • The student has good skills to produce intermediately complex meshes and scenes.
  • The student shows activity and initiative in learning process. He/she is willing to develop his/her 3D skills further.

Assessment criteria – grade 5

  • The student understands the Blender system to a large extent and can produce complex and well textured meshes.
  • The student shows activity and initiative in learning process. He/she is willing to develop his/her 3D skills further.
  • The student shows excellent activity and initiative in the learning process. He/she is independently taking his/her skills further using other online tutorials than those in the course.
