What will I learn


Implement basic procedures to produce a specified digital information outcome


Creation and interrogation of a database in Access. Learning about different data types an how to be efficiend with space. You will sort and search using and complex criteria. You will learn to create a user friendly form and report/ The advanced deatures of MS Word will allow you to presend a letter in a professional way. Mail merge is used to create many personalised letters from one skeleton.


Assessment information


91071 - "Implement basic procedure a specified digital information outcome"


This assessment is project based and requires the development of a merged documetn and a journal



Implement advance Undertake developement to make a prototype to adress a brief


Implement basic procedures to produce a specified digital information ourcome.
This unit is split into two. You will firstly investigate other website to understand implications for your design. You will then design your website and create a prototype, then use this prototype to create a finished website. For your design you will present your client with design ideas e.g. font style and colour and create your own brief. Creation of the prototype website and final website and final website will allow you to learn HTML and CSS. Advanced features such as JavaScript may also be used to enhance your design.


Assessment information


91047 - "Undertake developement to make a prototype to adress a brief"

91043 - "Implement basic procedures to produce a specified digital media outcome"


This assessment requires the evaluation of existing websites, design and production of a website. Students must demonstrate programming skills in HTML and CSS.

Recognising Best Achievement

For internal standards, your teacher may use some of these methods to help you get the best grade you can:



Your teacher will record your grade for each practice assessment for external achievement standards. These grades will be important if you need to apply for compassionate consideration. Your attendance in class and at assessments will help to ensure that your work is authentic and that there are enough results to refer to if you need to apply for compassionate consideration for an external standard.


See your copy of the Sancta Maria College Student Handbook for policies and procedures to do with absence, lateness and extensions, misconduct, compassionate consideration, special assessment conditions and grade appeals and for how to prepare and present a bibliography.
