Re: assessment in Photoshop

A tutorial can be assessed as to the accurate completion of the exercise which is to learn how to create their own original work. I often grade higher for complexity, originality and of course the success of the composition and the intent of the artist being clear. An exercise or tutorial is practice, followed by new student work enabled by the practice. Some Photoshop skills are technology based and some are drawing skills of the user, both are important.

Hello all,
When teaching Photoshop, how do you evaluate skills?
For instance- the text we use to teach the software
has exercises at the end of each section- we have the
students do those and then we move on to more complex
assignments we have designed. Does anyone else find
that the students rush through the exercises then
don't know how to do the applications? I know
Photoshop is a complex program- I don't have a problem
with them using their books for reference once they
start on the complex assignments. I guess- to make a
rambling post short- I am wondering what strategies
other people use when teaching Photoshop.
