Creator’s Edge cancelation.

Posted on 09 May 2011 by Duncan

Due to unforeseen circumstances Creator’s Edge Editor-in-Chief, Chuck Messinger, has had to cancel. He sends his apologizes to all students. If this is a student’s second review, all attempts will be made to find you a different review, as spaces open. There are no guarantees that you will receive a second review, as all spaces are currently filled. If you already have at least two reviews, no additional reviews will be scheduled for you at this time.

Editor’s Day Scheduled Assignments

Posted on 03 May 2011 by Duncan

Editors’ Day is the end of next week. Check out the portfolio review schedule!

In PDF form: Editors Day 2011 Assignments.

Assignments have been posted. Three factors went into assigning students to editors this year:

1. Level: Alumni, Grads and seniors had priority.

2. Skill level: This year students submitted samples of their portfolios, and each was evaluated on their skills and rated.There were four tiers to the levels: Excellent/Individuals currently engaged in professional practice; Great, Good, and Developmental

3. Application date: Those that got their applications in early (first-come, First-served)

Top students meeting all the criteria above received individual reviews. Some lower level students received individual reviews, because there were open spaces. All others were assigned group reviews. However, the group reviews were cut into smaller groups of 5-6 students, as opposed to 10-15 students.

You may here comments from students about what they received for assignments. Almost all students received two spots, and everyone got at least one, including freshman.
