Other Work Samples for:

Darcy has demonstrated sound knowledge and understanding of how to design and make a model of a shelter. The purpose of a shelter has been identified and some interesting points have been made. An adequate level of competence is evident in the recording of the procedure but not all of the steps have been followed. Darcy has provided a list of appropriate materials but sticky tape has not been mentioned. Some appropriate tools, materials and joining techniques have been selected and used, and the model has been adequately drawn and constructed. The suitability of the shelter has been tested and some evaluation has been made. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 2.
