Design and Visual Communication (Graphics) - annotated exemplars

Show: Design and Visual Communication (Graphics) Homepage

An annotated exemplar is an extract of student evidence, with a commentary, to explain key aspects of the standard. It assists teachers to make assessment judgements at the grade boundaries.

The material in these exemplars cannot be used (either in part or in full) for internal or external assessments submitted for any form of grading.
