91903: Use complex techniques to develop a digital media outcome

Updated December 2019. As a result of trialling and verification, the following information is available to assist in the assessment of Level 3 Digital Technologies standards. Clarification documents will be further developed when sufficient material has been submitted through the external moderation process. Further assessment support can also be found on TKI.

Examples of complex techniques are given in Explanatory Note 4. These provide guidance about the expectations at level 3, and are not an exhaustive list. Assessors may need to determine other techniques that are complex. Students need to demonstrate at least two complex techniques in one media type.

Appropriate user experience principles will depend on the digital media outcome being developed. These should generally follow normal practice for that media type at a level suitable for level 3.

Students need to show how they have addressed the relevant implications. (There is no dedicated clarification for relevant implications at level 3. Guidance and definitions are provided in the level 2 clarification.)

Appropriate data integrity and testing procedures should show that the media outcome functions as intended, and that the information presented is relevant for the purpose and end users.

For Merit, students will need to provide evidence of how the media outcome was improved using testing procedures and applying the user experience principles. For example, this could be shown with annotated screenshots.

For Excellence, iterative improvement is required throughout the design, development and testing process. Iterative improvement will involve cycles of improvements. A working outcome is required for Achieved. For Excellence, students will use a cyclic process to develop improved outcomes. A design for the media outcome may be required. Students need to use efficient tools and techniques. There is a dedicated clarification that expands on what is meant by iterative improvement.
