Level 2 Digital Technologies

L2DIT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Green

What will I learn and how will I learn?
The main course will offer four achievement standards worth 19 credits (internal and external) and be eligible for course endorsement. It will mirror the Level 1 Digital Technologies course where possible and be run as a year long project following normal business practice of a proposal, a media campaign, a programming product (e.g. a game design) and a final summary for the external component of the course. The achievement standards on offer are listed below, together with the unit standard options for students requiring an Individualised Education Program (IEP). 

Authenticity
All students are expected to follow the policy outlined in the Kaitaia College NZQA Student Handbook.  Failure to comply will result in a "Not Achieved" grade for the affected assessment.

Conditions of Assessment
Most assessments will be completed with a mixture of in class and out of class time. However, some standards require work only to be completed in class time. This is to ensure authenticity - that all work that students submit is their own. Discussions during assessment events will negate Merit and Excellence grades. There are no external examinations for unit standards.

Submitting Internal Assessments
It is important that students take note of the due dates for the internal assessments. All internal assessments must be submitted on or prior to the due date, unless prior approval has been granted for special circumstances (refer to your NCEA guidelines or talk to your teacher about this). Assessments that are submitted after the due date, without prior approval, will receive a Not Achieved.

Resubmissions and Reassessments
Apart from the CAT External which cannot be resubmitted all achievement standards will be decided on a case by case basis. Criteria such as regular attendance and on task classroom behaviour will be required before any resubmissions or reassessments will be offered.
