Workshop Technology

Year 12

Materials Technology

Prerequisites Completion of a Diploma Prep course in either wood or metal, reaching the minimum level of Stage 3 is strongly recommended for study of Materials Technology at NCEA. Students must also have a proven track record of being safe in the workshops. Students not meeting these requirements should speak to the HoD Workshop Technologies to discuss suitability of enrolment in this course. Description This course offers a mix of internal and external Achievement standards that are assessed against project-based learning. This practical course uses literacy-based assessments that will require students to analyse a design context and explain their decision-making based on research, stakeholder feedback, conceptual design development and implementation of workshop machinery and process. Students will use a range of digital and traditional machinery and tools. The breakdown of time allocation for this course equates to about 60% in a workshop environment, and 40% in a design and theory classroom.

Assessment This course contributes towards NCEA Level 2, with 4 of the 22 credits externally assessed by portfolio submission, and the remaining 18 credits internally assessed. The following Achievement Standards will be assessed: • AS 91344 (6 credits – internal) Implement advanced procedures. • AS 91356 (6 credits – internal) Develop a conceptual design for an outcome. • AS 91357 (6 credits – internal) Undertake effective development to make and trial a prototype. • AS91363 (4 credits – external) Demonstrate understanding of sustainability in design.
