We created a skillsets matrix for instructors in design courses to measure how their students value specific design skillsets and how their competencies in these design skillsets have changed throughout the course. The X-axis of the matrix describes Skills I Have vs. Skills that I am Limited In, while the Y-axis describes Skills I Want to Hone vs. Skills I Don’t Want to Hone. Students place 32 design skills (as explained in the table below) onto the matrix.
