In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is intended for individuals who need to create, test and gain user approval for multimedia/web-based computer applications with scripting from an outlined brief of the application.
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • plan the use of a multimedia/web-based authoring computer application with scripting;
  • design a multimedia/web-based application;
  • identify and save text, graphic elements and animation to be included in the multimedia/web-based application;
  • create multimedia/web-based application scripts; and
  • assemble a multimedia/web-based application including scripts.
    The performance of all elements is to a standard that allows further learning in this area 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Description of required skills, knowledge and understanding on:
  • Producing computer graphics using base functions
  • Automate computer processes in an application using a macro facility. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The level assigned to this unit standard is appropriate because the individual needs to critically review, consolidate and extend systematic and coherent body of knowledge, utilising specialised skills across an area of study, critically evaluate new concepts and evidence from a range of sources, transfer and apply diagnostic and creative skills and exercise judgment in a range of situations.

    The credit value assigned to this unit standard is appropriate and reflects the average length of time for an average qualifying learner to become competent.

    Recommended contact time and individual learning 40 h
    Recommended time spent in structured learning in the workplace and
    assessment 20h
    Total notional hours 60h
