In this module, students begin to expand their word-processing skills, so that they are able to add images to documents, change the style, size or colour of text, and begin to understand how to arrange items on the page. They can use the software to refine their work, and they start to understand how they can alter the look of a document to make it appropriate for a particular audience. They know how to save and retrieve their work. They understand how to use the software to improve the accuracy and quality of their work.
Students should be able to input a few paragraphs of text, and use the software confidently to make amendments to words or phrases (the work may contain a small number of errors). Students can save and print their document.
Students should be able to change the look of the text, including font style, size and colour, to make it suit a specific audience. The changes they should make can be specified in the assessment.
Students should be able to insert an image (or other object, e.g. a chart) into an appropriate place within a document. They do not need to be able to control how the text wraps around the image, but they should be in control of where the image is placed.
In addition to the pass criteria, students can work on the whole document and reorganise the contents and/or change the formatting, so that it is more suitable for its target audience. The changes they make should not be specified in the assessment, but the content they receive should lend itself to reorganisation and refinement. Students should be able to spot and correct errors.
Students should be able to evaluate their own work and judge its suitability for a specific audience, e.g. whether the layout is clear, or why they have chosen certain options within the document.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Next Steps Stage 1 Module 1 : Exploring Documents.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
