11. Achievement Standards

11.1. Primary

11.1.1. Foundation to Year 2 Digital Technologies By the end of Year 2, students identify how common digital systems (hardware and software) are used to meet specific purposes. They use digital systems to represent simple patterns in data in different ways. Design & Technolgies By the end of Year 2, students describe the purpose of familiar products, services and environments and how they meet the needs of users and affect others and environments.

11.1.2. Year 3 to Year 4 Digital Technologies By the end of Year 4, students describe how a range of digital systems (hardware and software) and their peripheral devices can be used for different purposes. Design & Techologies By the end of Year 4 students explain how products, services and environments are designed to best meet needs of communities and their environments.

11.1.3. Year 5 to Year 6 Digital Technologies By the end of Year 6, students explain the fundamentals of digital system components (hardware, software and networks) and how digital systems are connected to form networks. Design & Technologies By the end of Year 6 students describe some competing considerations in the design of products, services and environments taking into account sustainability. They describe how design and technologies contribute to meeting present and future needs

11.2. Secondary

11.2.1. Year 7 to Year 8 Digital Technologies By the end of Year 8, students distinguish between different types of networks and defined purposes. They explain how text, image and audio data can be represented, secured and presented in digital systems. Design & Technologies By the end of Year 8 students explain factors that influence the design of products, services and environments to meet present and future needs.

11.2.2. Year 9 to Year 10 Digital Technologies By the end of Year 10, students explain the control and management of networked digital systems and the security implications of the interaction between hardware, software and users. Design & Technologies By the end of Year 10 students explain how people working in design and technologies occupations consider factors that impact on design decisions and the technologies used to produce products, services and environments.
