Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 1: Technological Processes and Skills

The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies.

Assessment Standard

We know this when the learner:

1.1 finds out, with assistance, about the background context (e.g. people, environment) when given a problem, need or opportunity;

1.2 finds out about existing products relevant to a problem, need or opportunity, and identifies the main design aspect (e.g. who it is for, what is it for, what it looks like) that make them suitable as a solution;

1.3 performs, where appropriate, scientific investigations about concepts relevant to a problem, need or opportunity using science process skills;

1.4 writes or communicates, with assistance, a short and clear statement (design brief) for the development of a product for a given purpose;

1.5 suggests and records at least two possible solutions to the problem or need that link to the design brief and to given specifications or constraints (e.g. people, purpose, environment);

1.6 chooses one of these solutions, giving reasons for the choice.

1.7 briefly outlines a plan for making, listing the main steps;

1.8 uses suitable tools and materials to make products by measuring, marking out, cutting simple forms in a variety of materials, and joining them, using a range of techniques;

1.9 works neatly and safely.

LEARNING OUTCOME 2: Technological Knowledge and Understanding

The learner will be able to understand and apply relevant technological knowledge ethically and responsibly.

Assessment Standard

We know this when the learner:

2.1 demonstrates knowledge and understanding of how to strengthen the structure of products by folding, tubing, and using triangular webs or strong joints.
