Abstract: 
The very stuff of art, the ambiguity, the invention, the challenge to meaning and the biological need to make something 'special', is a constant topic for debate. Methods of evaluating artworks are equally debatable, and these may change as the 'stuff of art' is redefined depending on the cultural climate at the time. The implicit intention of political policies within Australia at the moment is to make society more productive. Outcomes must be able to be categorised, contained and calculated, and workers be assessed as competent. In applying this concept to evaluating the worth of student artworks, the notion of establishing 'profiles' and ' performance standards' is explored in this paper.
