Develop a design for a digital outcome

This involves you:You can show this by:
defining the purpose and end users for the digital outcome[6]researching and identifying who will use your digital outcome and what it will be used for
Make a list of requirements for the digital outcome (these will be used to judge how successful the design is)
Work out what the digital outcome must have and what are optional features
researching and generating a range[7] of design ideas[2]create at least three different (complete) initial designs/concepts for your digital outcome
selecting a chosen design evaluate your designs/concepts and choose the best one (or combine components from different concepts) to
describing the appropriateness of that chosen designexplain[3] who you have selected one of your designs/concepts
describing relevant implicationsdefine[8] a range of relevant implications in terms of how they are generally applied to creating a digital outcome of the type you have chosen.
You need[9] to be generic at this point and not relate to your specific design at this stage.
You can find more information on relevant implications here.
You must choose implications that are relevant to the outcome you are designing.

Achievement with Merit

develop an informed design for a digital outcome

This involves you:You can show this by:
using feedback[4] to improve the designGetting feedback from a range of people. The wider the range of people the better. Don’t just use your friends. Get feedback from people who will use your digital outcome.
You could create a survey or questionnaire to gather feedback or carry out observations.
explaining how the design meets relevant implicationsExplain[3] how your design addresses / takes into account the different implications by either minimising any negative impacts, addressing legal[10] or ethical issues or maximising positive impacts of the implications.

Achievement with Excellence

Develop an effective design for a digital outcome

This involves you:You can show this by:
justifying, with evidence, that the chosen design is suitable for the purpose and end users.Identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your design in all areas.
Compare your design to the initial purpose and requirements that the end users set out.
Evaluate how well your design meets these requirements
Draw a conclusion

Terms definitions
1. digital outcome. Digital Products and systems developed through Technological Practice for a specific purpose. A technological outcome is evaluated in terms of its fitness for purpose, and can be described by their physical and functional nature.
2. design ideas. Ideas specifically around design, and may be informed by research, what other people have done and what you have done in the past. It should meet the specifications of your brief.
3. explain. “Explain” requires students to describe in detail the “what” and the “why”, in order to clarify information. This means to provide reasons for, to account for, to provide a clear answer, to clarify. Logical reasons are provided.
4. feedback. Responses from people who have a specific interest or investment (time, financial, emotional) in a project. Feedback can be positive or negative. For example, your teacher may be a stakeholder in one of your in-class projects. When your teacher is discussing with you what they think about it, they are giving you feedback. When a […]
5. design. Creating a plan or mock up of the new system or digital outcome based on all of the requirements and specifications that have been identified.
