General Capabilities

ICT capability is one of seven general capabilities embedded throughout all Learning Areas. Like literacy and numeracy, it needs to be effectively assessed to ensure that students will progress in their capabilities.

The assessment of ICT capability is vital as it will allow you to track progress and to plan appropriately for students to achieve their capabilities. Proper assessment will provide you with real evidence and knowledge of where the students are up to. Without it any planning conducted would be worthless. 

Online Course Objectives 

You will learn how to assess ICT capability as a requirement of the National Curriculum by applying current instructional principles, research and appropriate assessment practices to the uses of ICT in your classroom.
