The next two pages are the starting point for your evaluations. It is important that you see evaluation as a reflection of how well you have designed and made your product, so that if you were to do a similar project in the future you can perform to a higher level.

You are to test how you can prevent your tickets from being counterfeited. You need to develop a test to see how easily they could be copied and then design a new version which has these changes on it.

There are three evaluations to complete at different points throughout the project. Attach any extra evaluation work to the booklet for your assessment. Evaluation is not just an end of project activity. Evaluation writing which you do after completing your product is known as Summative evaluation. In this evaluation you look at what went well about your product and suggests the things which could make it better. Evaluation writing throughout the designing of the product is known as Formative Evaluation. This type of evaluation contains all of your thinking at the different stages of the project. You are writing about all the decisions that you make as the project progresses.
