Other Work Samples for:

Shannon has demonstrated basic knowledge and understanding of how to design and make a model of a shelter. The purpose of a shelter has been identified but a limited level of competence is evident in the recording of the procedure. Shannon has provided a detailed drawing of the model but the design features have not been clearly labelled and the drawing does not resemble the completed model. Some appropriate materials have been selected and used but unnecessary materials have also been included and the list of materials is not accurate. The suitability of the shelter has been tested but the design process has not been effectively evaluated. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of Stage 2.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Designing and Making
    Students develop and evaluate design ideas recognising the needs of users or audiences. They implement the design process and evaluate solutions using functional and aesthetic criteria. Students select and safely use equipment, computer-based technology and other resources throughout the processes of design and production.
  • The Made Environment
    Students identify the ways built environments, products and services are constructed or produced. They use a range of techniques, media and information and communication technologies to communicate design ideas to specific audiences. Students explore the properties and uses of both natural and made materials and components.
