Level 3 Laser Design Studio
Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Green
Students are able to make a product of thri choice depending on the capabilites of the Laser and Engraving machine. Light fixtures and Bluetooth speakers has been a common theme throughout 2019. Students can approach the teacher with an idea to see if this can be produced in this course. There is no external component to the Level 3 course unless a student needs it for endorsement. An IEP will be set up for the student to develop a program that supports their needs for their future.
What will I learn and how will I learn?
This course focuses on building upon the skills students have learned in Level 2 Laser Design Studio and further develops practical and theory skills to prepare them for NCEA assessment. They will learn how to design ideas that are informed by research and critical analysis of existing outcomes, how to develop a conceptual design for an outcome that optimises resources, maintenance and disposal implications, and how to undertake functional modelling of their conceptual design to provide evidence for the outcome to be fit for purpose. They will also learn how to evaluate suitable materials and components based on their performance, to justify any decisions in order to refine, modify or accept the final outcome, how to use stakeholder feedback to support and evaluate the outcome as fit for purpose and how to use applied design techniques to enhance their ideas.
Conditions of Assessment
All work must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Any work not submitted for assessment by the deadline will receive a ‘Not Achieved’ grade. If students are sick on the day their work is due, they must get a doctor's certificate. Read over the student handbook for full assessment details.
Submitting Internal Assessment
Course endorsement is available for Textiles and design. This provides recognition for students who have performed exceptionally well in an individual course. Students will gain an endorsement for a course if, in a single school year, they achieve fourteen or more credits at merit or excellence (at least three credits from an external assessment and three credits from an internal assessment).
Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in their work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
Term 4 is a chance for students to complete work that has not been finished in term 3 before students leave for assessments
