I like the simplicity of the descriptions in Build and Test! #yay

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

For test, can the gold badge actually be about defining appropriate next steps from critique and defining a timeline for completing those tasks? #test

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Valid

For build, instead of the bronze goal being 10%, 60%, 90% could you push them to parallel prototyping and ask them to build out 3-5 different ideas. #build

Could the brainstorm activity page connect to the DFA activity page. #ideate https://loft.io/guide/dfa/ideate/brainstorming/

Robert Calvey — General

Overall, for the Gold criteria, by completing the gold section, the team should have a clear next step to follow that will push their projects forward, I could see a lot of teams thinking that completing the gold criteria is just busy work and not feel motivated to move on. #overall

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

For the bronze criteria in brainstorming, they also need to narrow down to 4+ different types of ideas. #ideate

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

The creativity criteria in ideate is hard to judge by just looking at the ideas. #ideate

4 years ago

Robert Calvey - Similar to the Empathy criteria, it could be something like "how do the ideas take the user and other stakeholders into account?" #ideate

Robert Calvey — General

In the brainstorming description, the rules below aren't the exact d.school ones, you could site them by saying "adapted from the d.school and IDEO" #ideate

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

For the gold criteria on Reframe, the logical framework could be changed to "Revise changes and submit a slide or visual describing why your measures of success impact your problem space." #reframe

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

Can remove the 'logicality' criteria in reframe, its kind of covered in your ability to meet the other criteria and the general box can help. Ideally there wouldn't be more than 4 or 5 items in the criteria section. #reframe

Robert Calvey - For instance, i think I have used 2 of the tags in this critique so far because I don't remember what all the different things mean.

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

The reframe 'feasibility' test could be changed to 'testable' (since feasible means something specific in DFA projects don't want to confuse the term) #reframe

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

For the reframe critique questions, if we are asking about alignment to HCWs and Goals we need to make submitting those two things a part of the bronze checklist items. #reframe

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — General

Thanks for thinking through reframe for us a bit more, breaking down what we mean by measures of success and how to get to them is really important. #yay #nice #reframe

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — General

For the end of the reframe description: "Try to start with 1 or 2 big changes that you want your user to make - like "drivers drive less", then come up with smaller and more tangible changes like "drivers use alternative transit 2 days a week"." #reframe

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — General

For the reframe short description under the title, 'framework' is a little vague and jargony for novices, maybe something like: "Come up with tangible metrics that can describe the end-goals of a solution as well as why those measures are important for your problem." #reframe

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

For the gold level badge in Immerse, I don't think its really resubmitting insights, that might not make sense in many situations. I think it is more about submitting a list of appropriate next steps for your project based on the insights and critique you received. #immerse

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — General

Could the language of the badge descriptions be a bit more active?

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — General

Could you align the checklist items for each level of badge with the short descriptions next to each level badge type on the top of the page so you quickly understand what the criteria of each badge are.

Robert Calvey — General

For reading clarity, the "More activities can be found on the activity page" can move to the last sentence of each badges description, include a double line break so it shows up as a new paragraph.

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — General

The wording for the description under "Synthesize Insights" can be "Uncover good insights based on in depth research of a your problem space and create visual representations to share insights." #immerse

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Specific

For the Identify, the 'Silver badge' should suggest who to get to critique (Studio lead, studio mentor, community partner) #identify

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Appropriate

For Identify, you can probably remove the 'testable' part of the criteria given the types of HCWs that come out before Immerse. #identify

4 years ago

Robert Calvey — Assessments: Appropriate

For the 2nd Clarity criteria on the Identify badge: I would change this to "Measures of Success: Are there measures of success in the statement that are appropriate for the current scale of project?" #identify
