Digital Media Standard Level 3

The following are parts of the Digital media standard

Implement complex procedures to produce a specified digital media outcome involves:
  • selecting software based on the features of the program(s) that enables the student to effectively demonstrate skills in creating, editing and integrating media types 
  • applying a set of complex tools and techniques to present content in a media type 
  • applying data integrity and testing procedures to ensure the outcome meets the specifications 
  • following legal, ethical and/or moral requirements appropriate to the outcome. 
Skilfully implement complex procedures to produce a specified digital media outcome involves:
  • showing accuracy in the application of complex tools, techniques and procedures 
  • showing independence with regard to decision making in the selection of software and application of complex tools, techniques and testing procedures. 
Efficiently implement complex procedures to produce a specified digital media outcome involves:
  • applying complex tools and techniques, and producing the outcome in a manner that economises the use of resources (eg optimised tool selection, batch processing images, use of master pages, use of libraries, timely production). 
3  Specified digital media outcome refers to a digital media outcome and its relevant specifications.  The specifications must be of sufficient rigour to allow the student to meet the standard.  The specifications need to be agreed prior to the outcome being made.  They may be teacher-given or developed in negotiation with the student.

4 Complex tools and techniques may include:
• Web page design: HyperText Markup Language / Cascading Style Sheets (HTML/CSS), scripting (manipulating content), dynamic data handling, interaction between user and content, multiple device outputs
• Print design: interactivity, form elements, chapters and sections, clipping paths, Extensible Markup Language (XML) content, pre-press, resolutions
• Audio: multiple tracks, manipulating multiple tracks, overlays, equalising
• Motion graphics: complex transitions, multiple tracks, post processing, compression and exporting, onion skinning, rendering
• Image manipulation: colour histograms and adjustments, non destructive editing, pen tools and paths, filter effects, graphic optimisations, colour management and printing, automation scripts.

5 Media types include: text, web languages, audio, video, graphics, animation or still images.

6 Data integrity procedures include checking for the relevance, accuracy, and reliability to ensure the outcome functions as intended.
