In this module, students use spreadsheet software to create a working spreadsheet with a clear purpose. Students work methodically through a design and development process, being able to test, correct and modify the spreadsheet as they progress. They are able to create a final spreadsheet which suits its purpose and is presented in an appropriate way for its audience. They begin to understand how to evaluate their work, and can assess how well their spreadsheet meets its objectives.
Students are able to design a spreadsheet to model a real-life scenario, e.g. researching which bicycle to purchase. They are able to talk or write about what the objective of the spreadsheet is, and how their spreadsheet will help them to meet that objective. They understand enough about the data and formulas they need to include in the spreadsheet to make a start on it.
Students enter data, text and formulas to create their spreadsheet. They are able to make modifications to their design to make it work.
Students are able to test their spreadsheet to check for errors and to see that formulas are correct. They make any corrections required to create an accurate spreadsheet with very few errors.
In addition to the pass criteria, depending on the purpose of the spreadsheet, students should be able to make the spreadsheet user friendly, e.g., good use of titles and formatting, OR presenting the results of the spreadsheet in a way that is easy to understand by using appropriate graphs or charts.
Students can evaluate how well their spreadsheet manages to suit its purpose. They are able to make suggestions for improvements, or give reasons for modifications they have already made.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of On Track Stage 1 Module 3 : Spreadsheets for a Purpose.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
