Heroes and Villains
Before tackling the Summative Project Brief (SPB), students should have
acquired the appropriate ICT skills, knowledge and understanding as specified in
the ‘What You Need To Learn’ sections of the DA203 specification. Students must
have access to a range of appropriate graphics software.
The DA203 SPB 0913 is valid for moderation in June 2014, December 2014,
June 2015 and December 2015.
Teachers and students should remember that the emphasis of the new CiDA
specification is ‘creative computing’. It is therefore vital that students take the
chosen or specified audience and purpose into account when designing and
In order to encourage an independent approach to the SPB, the template
documents that were present on DiDA SPBs are no longer provided. Students
will therefore need to be taught how to create and use appropriate types of
documentation to support and record the planning, design, production and
evaluation of their work.
Unit 3 as a whole is a 90 Guided Learning Hours (GLH) unit. Centres must allow
30 hours for students to complete their Summative Project. As a guide, it is
recommended that this time is divided up as follows:
Proposal – 5 hours
Design, building and development – 22 hours
Review – 3 hours.
Section 1: Using the SPB
Access and Navigation
The SPB is intended to be accessed on-screen.
Although the links in the navigation bar are roughly in sequence, students
should be reminded that one task often depends on one or more other tasks and
they should make use of the interactive nature of the brief.
Where more than one page relates to a main task (such as the eportfolio), they
appear as a submenu from the main link.
at the top of each page allows students to print the page.
