The Criteria:
SL and HL Checklist:

Criterion A 
– You have descirbed a design situation and a problem that you intend to solve. 
– You have provided a summary of your research that supports and validates your design problem 
– You have included photographic evidence that helps to explain your design problem further. 
– Which of the following examples of research have you included in your work (you do not have to include all of them but you should be aiming for a broad range of research methods

Primary research 
-Self-taken photographs, annotated with key features/constraints
-Interviews with those experiencing the problem or working with the problem, including users and clients, in order to identify their needs
-Interviews with those who have expertise related to the problem
-Surveys and questionnaires focused on user experience with the problem and establishing the user needs
-Observation of those experiencing the problem (user observation)
-Measured testing
-Self-appraisal of the problem
-Development of personae, including primary, secondary and anti-personae
-“A day in the life”—seeing the situation from the user’s/client’s point of view by acting as them to engage with the problem
-“A day in the life”—seeing the situation from the user’s/client’s point of view by acting as them to engage with the problem
-Generative sessions
-Shadowing a user/client to observe their interaction with the problem/problem process
-Analyzing existing products that act as a (part) solution to the problem
-Mapping the user journey (analysis) as they interact with the problem using a “comic strip” or flow chart

Secondary Sources 
-Photographs from media sources, annotated with key features/constraints
-Analysis and summary of literature related to the problem, including interviews with those experiencing the problem
-Analysis and summary of content of magazines, websites and newspapers related to the problem
-Step-by-step analysis of the problem
-Analysis of existing solutions to the problem and the weaknesses of those solutions
-Investigation of relevant anthropometric and ergonomic aspects related to the problem
 
– A table of specification points which includes:
Criteria, reference back to the design, Possible ways of testing the method
Rows of table should use the following subheadings to ensure that the specification covers as much detail as possible. 
Aesthetics
Target audience
Function
Production constraints
Material selection
Size
Quantity
Must, Should, Could statements clearly prioritise the specification points.


Criterion B 
– A good range of design ideas with annotations that supports the inclusion of specific features based up the specification. 
– Development of design ideas using detailed sketching, physical modelling to test aspects of the design. 
– The use of feedback from clients? experts in the decision-making process when discussing design ideas. 
– A comparison of all ideas against the specification and a clear choice being made for ready for criterion C 


Criterion C 
-A short list of feasable materials with an explanation of why they are suitable, A final choice of material and its suitablity over the others explained.
-A short list of feasable manufacturing techniques with an explanation of why they are suitable, A final choice of manufacturing technique and its suitablity over the others explained.
-An exploded isometric assembly drawing with a list of all parts required to make the product. and page references for detailed drawings. 
-A detailed orthographic working drawing of every part that needs to be made.  that needs to be manufactured from the assembly drawing. Notes reference the material and manufacturing tehnique choices. 
-A step by step plan that makes reference to Materials and manufacturing technques pages and individual working drawings. 
-Risk assessment of each activity is detailed makes reference to good manufacturing practice and sets out clear ways of mitigating the risk. 
-Quality control steps and equipment are put in place along with tolerenaces and possible options to fix errors. e.g too big sand it down To small remake the the part.
