Other Work Samples for:

Alex has demonstrated extensive knowledge and understanding of electric circuits and a very high level of competence in designing and making a device that uses an electric circuit. Appropriate tools and materials have been selected and used. Alex has used technical language and provided a clear and detailed explanation of how the device works. The safety elements have been evaluated based on observations of the device. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade A standard at the end of Stage 3.

Grade A

The student has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the content and can readily apply this knowledge. In addition, the student has achieved a very high level of competence in the processes and skills and can apply these skills to new situations.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Designing and Making
    Students independently plan, implement and manage the design process and evaluate the results using design criteria. They consider the implications of design and production in relation to environmental, aesthetic, cultural, ethical, safety and functional factors. Students select, safely use and evaluate equipment, computer-based technology and other resources to meet the requirements and constraints of design tasks.
  • The Natural Environment
    Students identify, describe and evaluate interdependent relationships between living things and the environment within ecosystems. They identify and describe various sources, forms, uses, transfers and changes in forms of energy. Students explore how natural forces and human interaction cause changes to the Earth over time. They recognise that the Earth is the source of most materials, and resources must be managed for sustainability.
