Learning Outcomes, Assessment Criteria and Indicative Content

Learning Outcomes – The learner will:

Assessment Criteria – The learner can:

Indicative contents

1.  Understand the purpose and types of coding.

1.1  Identify popular programming languages that are used within computer systems.

1.2  Differentiate between High level and Low-level programming languages.

1.3  Explain how principles of computer programming are applied in different languages to produce software applications.

  • The uses and applications of different types of high and low-level programming languages, developed to assist in the solution of particular problems, such as:
    • procedural, e.g. C, Perl®, PythonTM
    • object-orientated, e.g. C++, C#®, Java®
    • event-driven, e.g. Visual Basic®
    • machine, e.g. Assembler
    • mark-up, e.g. HTML.
  • Factors to compare and contrast in programming languages, including:
    • hardware and software needed for running and developing a program
  • special devices required
  • performance
  • preferred application areas
  • development time
  • ease of development.

2.  Understand web architecture and components.

   2.1 Explain the web architecture and components which enable internet and web functionality

   2.2 Discuss the security risks and protection mechanisms involved in website performance.

  • Web architecture: Internet Service Providers (ISP); web hosting services; domain structure; domain name registrars; worldwide web
  • Components: hardware eg web, mail and proxy servers; routers; software eg browser, email
  • Protocols: transport and addressing eg TCP/IP; application layer eg HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP
  • Web functionality: Web 1.0, Web 2.0; blogs; online applications; cloud computing
  • Security: risks eg hacking, viruses, identity theft Security protection mechanisms: firewalls;
  • Secure Socket Layers (SSL); adherence to standards eg strong passwords

3.  Be able to create interactive websites.

  3.1        Be able to create or modify components of websites to meet business needs.

  3.2        Demonstrate that a created website meets the defined requirements and achieves the defined purpose.

Design:

  • select appropriate software e.g. standard and non-standard
  • use formatting and editing techniques, e.g.:
    • common web functions (e.g. text, graphics, fonts, text formatting, colour schemes, images)
    • simple HTML (e.g. editor programs, file extensions)
    • HTML tags and conventions (e.g., closing tags)
  • introduce interactive elements (e.g. rollover images, submit button to email a form)
  • apply optimisation (e.g. image, video, animation, sound, file, size, format, dimensions, compression)
  • apply good practice, i.e.:
    • consistent file and folder management
    • appropriate naming conventions
    • documentation of developments
    • ensure accessibility, i.e.users with disabilities (e.g. accessibility aids, readability, colour scheme, subtitles)
    • format of presentation
    • content of presentation
    • target audience
    • obtain feedback from audience
    • appropriateness
    • clarity
    • content
    • speed
    • navigation
    • aesthetics
    • comparison of updated website against business needs
    • demonstration of functionality
    • demonstration of interactivity
    • present the solution to the stakeholders
  • Plan and present the solution:
  • Recommend changes to website components:
  • Comparison of website components against business needs:
  • Review website components:
    • feedback, e.g.
    • questionnaires
    • verbal discussion
    • identify criteria for feedback e.g. appropriateness, clarity, content, speeds, navigation, font choice, colour combinations)analysis improvements (e.g. design, clarity, interactive response, function)
