The paper shows how the various combinations of creative thinking processes are directly relevant to all design, then goes on to show how these creative thinking processes can be assessed transparently and can make innovative and significant contributions to increasing design ability in students and graduates, and to meeting educational objectives of best practice, and institutional objectives of accountability and efficiency.
