• Feedback individually to students, post-assessment
• Group/class feedback, post-assessment
• Peer review activities
The nature of collaborative performance rehearsal is such that feedback is consistently given in rehearsal. The Studio Examination piece will be presented once in Week 5 or 6 with no weighting (to enable formative assessment) and again in Week 9, 10 or 11 with a weighting of 20% (to allow for a summative approach).
