1 welcome to te3000 Welcome to the Level 3 Technology (TE3000) course offered by Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu.

overview of te3000

In this course, students develop a product by identifying an opportunity or need. They are given a setting to research and guided towards finding an issue of real interest or that inspires them. The course enables students to follow a technological process to design and develop a solution to fulfil an opportunity or answer a problem. Students are encouraged to use authentic technological practice to set themselves on a pathway that explores design, creativity and problem solving. The two major outcomes for most students are a conceptual design and a prototype. Other topics can be negotiated with the teacher along with the specific examples students choose to use for externals. This course can be endorsed with Merit or Excellence if in a single year you gain 14 or more credits at Merit and/or Excellence within Level 3 Technology. At least three of these credits must be from externally assessed standards and three from internally assessed standards. This is an online course, supported by paper-based materials. Students who prefer a primarily paper-based course should contact their teacher now.

organising your study

Plan a regular time to study. Some people learn best from frequent short sessions while others do better with fewer, longer sessions. It is important to have a plan or a timetable and to keep to it. There is a suggested course plan in the course outline to help you plan your programme of study. You may wish to consult with your subject teacher to help you decide on your plan. Getting your study underway is very important. Your first return of work should be two to three weeks after you received your initial work. If you have any issues returning your work within this time, please contact your subject teacher. For more information on how to study successfully, refer to the Student Guide to Years 11–13 (www.tekura.school.nz).

resources you need to get going

All students will need access to a computer and contacts in their own community. They will need to either have or be willing to learn skills in: •• time management •• design and creativity •• working with stakeholders •• using experts and examples of other technologist’s work to inform their own practice •• decision making •• materials and/or software for design and construction •• using online learning •• independence •• reflective thinking.

choosing topics and standards

NZQA advises that a one-year course should lead to 18–20 credits. You may only wish to study some topics. For example, you may want to do only internal standards for this course. You should look carefully at the course outline and make your choices. It is important to consider how well this will meet your learning goals (such as gaining enough credits to achieve your NCEA Level 3, or whether you are working towards course endorsement, or meeting the entry requirements for your tertiary course or any future study). To be awarded University Entrance you must have: •• NCEA Level 3 •• Three subjects – at Level 3 or above, made up of: –– 14 credits each, in three approved subjects •• Literacy – 10 credits at Level 2 or above, made up of: –– 5 credits in reading –– 5 credits in writing •• Numeracy – 10 credits at Level 1 or above made up of: –– achievement standards – specified achievement standards available through a range of subjects, or –– unit standards – package of three numeracy unit standards (26623, 26626, 26627 – all three required). To see the list of approved subjects refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/university-entrance/approved-subjects/ To see the list of standards which count towards University Entrance literacy refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/university-entrance/literacy-requirementsfor-university-entrance-from-2014/ To see the list of standards which count towards University Entrance numeracy refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/qualifications/ncea/subjects/literacy-andnumeracy/level-1-requirements/lit-num-subjects/ You should discuss your options with your learning advisor and/or your teacher.

self-assessment

Many activities are self-assessed. Students are provided with opportunities to reflect on their work during the course of their topic. They are also encouraged to use creative ways of showing their development and understanding. For example they could ‘describe’ an idea through drawing, writing, CAD, toiles, mock up, modelling or any other tool which clearly communicates the student’s idea to the teacher or stakeholder.

assessment

Students are required to send in their self-assessed and teacher-assessed work. Teachers return student work with feedback and advice in preparation for NCEA internal and external assessments. •• a portfolio of research, planning, concept design and design development •• a record of the preparation for the construction of a prototype •• a range of other report-based activities in preparation for the external assessments and oneoff internal assessments to be negotiated with the teacher. The detailed criteria for Achievement Standards will be given in the relevant resources. They can also be found by searching the subject and level in the NCEA part of the NZQA website (www.nzqa.govt.nz) and then finding the relevant standard(s). External assessment is: •• a negotiated research topic which includes teacher, student and community.

time commitment

There are up to 12 tasks for student use in this course. Each task indicates how many study hours it is likely to require. For example, a task may take approximately 12 hours of work to complete at the normal pace, representing about two weeks of work at six hours per week. If you are to achieve at Excellence level, it is likely that you will have to study substantially more than the suggested guideline. Before deciding on the pace of learning, read through this Course and assessment guide and ask yourself the following: •• How much time can I set aside for study each week? •• Will I be attempting both externally and internally assessed standards? •• Will I be able to keep a steady pace of six hours of study each week? •• Do I intend to sit the external examination at the end of the year? •• Do I need specific external or internal credits for next year’s study or work?

normal pace of learning

As a guide, expect to do at least six hours work per week in this subject. This means completing three to four tasks each term so that you complete the course before the external reports at the end of the school year.

flexible pace of learning

If you have less than a year because you start later or need to finish earlier, you can decide the pace at which you work. You could still complete the whole course by devoting more time and effort to it. Your teacher can ensure that you receive the resources you need in time to do this.

cover sheets

There are cover sheets posted on OTLE. Fill one in, sign it and send it with your work to Te Kura. Signing a cover sheet digitally (using a computer) is considered as having the same meaning as a hand signature. It is an authentic confirmation from you that the work is your own. Before you present your work for final submission, your supervisor also signs the cover sheet as part of our authenticity requirements. All students are encouraged to submit as much as possible of their work online via the OTLE Dropbox. When work requires authentication, students will follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

te kura codes

Your course code is: TE3000. ‘TE’ is the code for NCEA Level 3 Technology and 3 refers to Level 3. ‘TE3011’ refers to a Task that covers a particular learning topic in the TE3000 course. ‘TE3011Y1’ refers to the first assessment for an Achievement Standard (91610) for conceptual design development. ‘AS’ is the code for Achievement Standard.

queries about your work

It is important to contact your teacher if you have any queries about your work. It helps to have your ID number, task code (for example, TE3011) and the activity or question number when you contact your teacher, but it is not essential.

online work

Using OTLE as part of your learning is an exciting opportunity. It can also be challenging. As well as contacting your teachers for help, you can also post questions online for teachers and other students to comment on. Occasionally there are opportunities for live presentations and classes.

6 assessment information standards

TE3000 offers credits from Achievement Standards which count towards NCEA Level 3. Please refer to our Student Guide to National Certificates or Te Kura and New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) websites for more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement and assessment: •• www.nzqa.govt.nz •• www.tekura.school.nz

internal assessment

TE3000 offers 14 Achievement Standards that are internally assessed. This means that your teacher sets and marks all assessments that count towards credits gained for these standards. The assessment opportunity for an Achievement Standard is coded ‘Y1’. For example, TE3012Y1 is the assessment for AS91608. There are no second assessment opportunities available in this course. As you work through your project, your teacher will give you feedback and guidance towards achieving the standard.

external assessment

External assessment means that an external examiner marks your assessment work. This may be through the NZQA examinations at the end of the year. In the case of Technology, it is through the production of a report.

te kura practice examinations

You should complete the technological process in detail. It is important that you complete all relevant activities to submit the report for external assessment. If for some reason, such as illness, you are unable to complete the report at the end of the year you will only be eligible for consideration for a derived grade (compassionate consideration) if you have completed on-going analysis of a range of technologists’ work.

resubmissions for internal assessments

If you have made mistakes in your standard assessment activity, your teacher may offer you one resubmission opportunity. This means you have made errors that you are capable of discovering and correcting by yourself. A resubmission allows you to correct your errors and improve your result.

further assessment opportunities for internal assessments For some standards, you may be able to complete a second assessment called a ‘further assessment opportunity’ to improve your results. These standards are indicated in the assessment summary. You should take this opportunity where it is available. There are no further assessment opportunities available for TE3000.

assessment information

authenticity

Authenticity means that students complete and submit work that is their own. When you submit work to Te Kura, you sign an authentication declaration that the work you are submitting is your own work and was done under the required assessment conditions. Where applicable, your supervisor signs to confirm this declaration. When submitting work online via the OTLE Dropbox, if it requires authentication, students must follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

derived grades (compassionate consideration)

If for any unexpected reason you are not able to sit your end of year examination or to submit final work towards an external standard (portfolios or projects), you may be eligible for a derived grade. Please refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates and contact your teacher or learning advisor as soon as possible to find out more should you feel this is necessary.

appeals

You have the right to query an assessment result if you want further clarification or disagree with the result. If you are still not satisfied, you may appeal. Refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates for more information. You can also appeal any other decisions, procedures or policies about assessments. Contact your teacher or learning advisor if you wish to appeal. Further information and a form that students can use to appeal is available on the Te Kura website in the Student toolkit area (www.tekura.school.nz and go to Student toolkit).

new zealand scholarship

New Zealand Scholarship examinations are designed to extend very high achieving Level 3 NCEA students. Students who wish to enter for the NZ Scholarship examinations must discuss this option with their Te Kura subject teacher.
