Questions – Creation Projects

Applications include questions related to the program assessment criteria. Many questions include writing tips specific to each program.

Remember, assessors only know what you tell them. You cannot assume that they will know your work, your community or your cultural context. In answering the questions, be sure to provide all the information they need to understand and assess your project.

See the Evaluation Rubric – Creation Projects for more information on how assessors rate applications.

These are the questions for this program.
