Technology & Design Raymond Moffatt WELB. Principal Moderator CCEA. Technology Education Centre: Omagh The following presentation includes three exemplars portfolios or Research / reference materials consisting of:- ( 3 x A4 pages) and Design work (4 x A3 sheets) for Task 4 of the GCSE Revised specification. This work was presented on Launch Day II and has been carried out by three students on behalf of CCEA. Please feel free to use this as a guide or reference for your students in this controlled assessment task.
Revised GCSE Technology & Design Unit 4 & Unit 5 (Coursework 60%) GCSE: Technology & Design.Principal Moderator CCEA.
Controlled Assessment Tasks: I Unit 4 Year 11 Assignment set by CCEA supervised by teacher/s Brief issued to schools in September Research supervised by teacher/s Research Time (8) hours Teacher supervisedDesign Task Unit 4: (5) hours Time Allocation: 2 weeks to complete the design task. Teacher marked assignment & sample Tasks forwarded to CCEA by 1 st May Unit 4: Task Taking:
Research & Preparation (8hrs) Time to complete the Assignment (5hrs) Collaboration….but an individual response Research 3 x A4 pages only Maximum of 4 x A3 pages one-side only Candidates must submit research / reference materials (Year 11) More time to develop research and design skills relevant to the design brief. Unit 4 Task Taking: Design Assignment Appendix 1 (page 46) 20% Weighting.
Design sheet 1: Suggestions for Layout Appropriateness and quality of the reference/research materials; Students should demonstrate skills and knowledge to show:- Understanding of the design context - reference to the clients needs, analysis of the problem; relevant research / reference materials in context; comments / annotation relating to the designs, materials or reference to the fabrication of the product/s collated; how these materials have inspired, influenced or stimulated their thinking? how their research connects with suggested solutions? clear annotation to help clarify design outcomes
Students should demonstrate their skills and knowledge to show.. a range of ideas / concepts at least 2/3; concepts showing design for creativity and fabrication; clarity of their idea/s showing detail/s by including annotation; a range of sketching techniques pictorial, exploded, sectional, 2D, orthographic, etc. Design sheets 2/3: Suggestions for Layout
Design sheets 3/4: Suggestions for Layout Students should demonstrate their skills and knowledge to show:- the selection of their best idea / concept; the development the design for creativity where necessary and including fabrication details for all parts; support the clarity of the idea and details by including annotation where appropriate; the suggested materials stating reasons for choice.
In an effort to reduce the annual death toll on the roads of about 100 cyclists and the injury rate, which is about 20,000 you have been asked to carryout research and design on: Bicycle Mirrors Design Brief / Opportunity: Design a bicycle mirror that will help make the cyclist more aware of rear view traffic and assist in safe cycling for all. Consider the following factors: Function, materials, compactness, assembly, attachment, aesthetics, manufacturing processes, safety. Unit 4: Assignment Safe Cycling
Electrical power interruption does happen occasionally. Extreme weather, falling branches, accidents and vandalism can cause lines to be damaged and supply to be lost in the home. Design Brief / Opportunity: Design an emergency LED light to be used in a domestic situation. Consider the following factors: Function, materials, compactness, assembly, attachment, aesthetics, manufacturing processes, safety. Unit 4: Emergency LED Light
Unit 4: Laptop support for a wheelchair user Many able bodied people use laptops on their knee whilst working. Considering the wheelchair user research a support that will ease the use of a laptop. Design Brief / Opportunity: Design a portable, compact and lightweight laptop support for a wheelchair user. Consider the following factors: Function, materials, compactness, collapsible, assembly, attachment, aesthetics, manufacturing processes, safety.
To help launch a new model of digital camera a manufacturer has decided to include a free support stand as part of the overall package deal. The stands main function is to keep the camera steady when shooting a still image. Design a stand that will hold a Camera steady when taking still photographs. The device should include the following features:- Aesthetically pleasing Stability Ease of use Compact Lightweight Portable Cost to manufacture Marketable product Safety Unit 4: A Digital Camera Support Stand: NB: Exemplar Brief
A Digital Camera Support: Use of reference materials? The student should include the source.

The student in this example refers to the bag shape as a stimulus but should comment further as to the pros and cons of this shape: the simplicity of the shape / ease of manufacture; time saving to manufacture; this basic shape could be developed; or this semi-circular shape lends itself to a box / casing design.
