Learning Resources

Prescribed Texts


References


Other Resources

 

Students are asked to provide the following:

- Portable Hard-drive or USB drive
- folio with plastic sleeves for presentation of hard copy printouts of digital design work
- A4 folder & notebook to be used as a Technical Workbook
- Ruled Notebook & pen for recording notes during class exercises.


Overview of Assessment

Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.

Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including recording all technical documentation in a workbook, exercises completed in class, exercises completed outside class times, producing of a folio of digital designs and observational checklists completed by the class teacher during class exercises.

Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt.

Units assessed as ‘not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ‘competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading.

Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
All work must be submitted by the due date. Late submission will not be graded higher than a PASS.


Assessment Tasks

 

Assessment Tasks

Portfolio of Digital Designs - students develop a range of digital designs, these are presented as
an online digital portfolio or  printed for presentation in a folio/workbook.  graded assessment

Technical Workbook - students record all documentation processes and technical specifications in
a workbook. This workbook is submitted at the end of semester.  graded assessment
