Assessment Type 2: Creative Explorations
For a 10-credit subject, students present at least one creative work in the form of a performance or a composition.
For a 20-credit subject, students present at least two creative works. At least one of these should be a performance and at least one should be a composition.
Students explore and apply their dance understanding, skills, and techniques to develop, refine, and present their creative work.
A dance performance may be as a soloist or as part of a duo, trio, small group, or larger group. The creative works may be in different genres. A performance of one or more pieces should total a maximum of 5 minutes for each student.
A student may work collaboratively or individually to create a composition and may use one or more performers in the composition to communicate their choreographic intent. Each student should provide choreographic evidence of between 1 and 2 minutes. The student is not required to participate in the performance.
Students present their work as a live performance, film, artistic installation, or multimedia presentation.
For this assessment type, students provide evidence of their learning primarily in relation to the following assessment design criteria:
- understanding dance
- creating dance.
