Business and Communication Systems Unit 9 exam

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by 2112kat, Mar 14, 2012.


  1. Hi all,


    I am new to teaching this topic. I have received the Unit 9 exam
    that my year 10 pupils will be sitting in June. I have been wondering (before
    the exam came out) about the creating a website aspect of the course. I have
    been doing a bit in Dreamweaver but now looking at the exam it seems that they
    will not even have to touch Dreamweaver and it will all be in word.


    I am looking at it and I am very confused as to what they could
    possibly ask. Making a webpage in word doesn’t make any sense to me at all!


    If anyone could give me any advice on this it would be a massive
    help.


    Thanks

  3. This seems to be a puzzle for everyone I have contacted through email. Why on earth you would be tested on designing a webpage using boxes in MSWord is beyond me! Especially when web page design forms part of Unit 10 this year. The spreadsheet also is difficult to guess although I guess charts and graphs will be required for the report. I expect students will need to use filters and perhaps the MAX and MIN formula?
    I have pointed out to students how useful MSAcess is to set up a form for Unit 9 (Hotels) although not all my pupils have done so and some have used MSPublisher.
    Hope this helps - any other ideas?
