91072: Demonstrate understanding of basic concepts of digital media

Updated May 2014. This document has been updated in its entirety to address new issues that have arisen from moderation.

Digital media outcomes 

Explanatory Note 3 gives examples of digital media types and outcomes. If learners are researching print media it should be multi-page. The outcome must represent an integration of digital media types that are produced in different applications.

The assessor should provide opportunities for learners to explore a range of digital media outcomes in order to discuss the software resources, tools, techniques, design elements and ethical considerations used in their development.

Depth of evidence

Learners can achieve this standard by researching one Digital media outcome.

Learners need to produce evidence in the report of more than one of each of the following: 

  • software resources
  • techniques
  • design elements
  • ethical considerations.

Evidence in this standard should include screenshots or scans of the original media, with the learner making clear reference back to the media being researched.

Selection of suitable digital media objects

Assessors need to ensure that the digital media outcomes investigated have good examples of the requirements of the standard. 

Some activities are basing the evidence collection around learners planning their own outcomes. To achieve at Excellence level (comprehensive understanding), a learner should look at more than their own practice. That is, learners would need to demonstrate the knowledge of existing outcomes from the wider community that influenced their decision-making to produce their digital outcome.
