Assessment of Generic Computing levels 1 to 4
Resources have been written to assist assessors of Generic Computing unit standards to develop their own quality assessment material, whether they work in a school, tertiary or industry context.
These resources are not teaching plans. The material is intended to:
- be relevant in a range of contexts and environments, including the workplace, an educational setting, or in the community
- assist assessors to develop resources that promote quality assessment of Generic Computing unit standards
- make it easier for assessors to assess effectively and efficiently.
Planning aspects of some computing standards
Many of the Generic Computing unit standards include processing elements and performance criteria that relate to planning, designing and evaluating tasks and projects that meet the requirements of a brief. These components impact on both assessment activity design and the carrying out of assessment.
See The computing process for guidelines and specific examples for unit standards 2786, 2787, 2788, 2792, 18742, 25657, 25658.
