Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1.2 Implement dynamic data structures, including double-linked lists and binary trees for coding

1.3 Code using hashing techniques according to programming requirements

1.4 Code sorting algorithm using programming techniques

1.5 Code advanced searching techniques for use with complex data structures

2. Write application and use third-party libraries

2.1 Use features of enable inter-process language communication through one mechanism

2.2 Use features of language for operating system ‘signals’ to be captured and responded to

2.3 Use third-party library in construction of an application according to programming techniques

2.4 Write application to work within graphical user interface (GUI) computer environment

3. Debug and test code

3.1 Use integrated development environment (IDE) debugging facilities to debug according to software requirements

3.2 Detect and resolve errors of syntactical, logical and design origin

3.3 Design and document required tests

3.4 Undertake limited testing of produced code and confirm that it complies with technical requirements

3.5 Document the test results

4. Create application

4.1 Develop and document solution according to debugging test results

4.2 Design and document algorithm and construct, and test application according to techniques

4.3 Submit documents to required personnel and seek and respond to feedback according to organisational policies and procedures

DESCRIPTION 

Learning

  • Monitors outcomes of decisions and results and identifies key concepts and principles that may be adaptable in the future

Oral communication

  • Articulates information and requirements, using effective communication techniques and industry standard technical language intended for audience and environment

Reading

  • Interprets, and critically analyses, complex texts and applies the required strategies to construct meaning from complex texts

Writing

  • Prepares complex workplace documentation detailing processes and outcomes using required structure, layout and technical programming language
  • Writes and edits code and technical data in a logical manner using required syntax

Planning and organising

  • Accepts responsibility for planning and sequencing complex tasks and workload, negotiating key aspects with others, including required capabilities, efficiencies and effectiveness

Problem solving

  • Uses systematic, analytical processes in complex, non-routine situations, setting goals, gathering relevant information, and identifying, and evaluating, options against the agreed criteria
  • Uses analytical processes to decide on a course of action, establishing the criteria for deciding between options

Self-management

  • Uses systematic processes, setting goals, gathering required information and identifying and evaluating options against agreed criteria

Technology

  • Understands the key principles and concepts, underpinning the design and operation of digital systems and tools

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 6.0.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including evidence of the ability to:

  • design and build at least one advanced application program according to a design document
  • code at least one sorting algorithm
  • apply at least two different techniques to optimise code.

In the course of the above, the candidate must:

  • design and write code using dynamic data structures
  • write code using hashing techniques, sorting algorithms and advanced searching techniques
  • use language features that enable inter-process communication and responses to operating system signals
  • use third-party libraries in the construction of an application, including referencing third-party documentation
  • evaluate and document debugging test processes and outcomes
  • test and debug code and resolve errors of a syntactical, logical and design origin.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including knowledge of:

  • programming languages applicable to applying advanced programming skills in another language
  • languages required for a GUI environment
  • developing large-scale applications applicable to applying advanced programming skills in another language
  • procedures for programming with complex data structures
  • procedures for using a third-party supplied library for standard programming features.

Assessment Conditions

Skills in this unit must be demonstrated in a workplace or simulated environment where the conditions are typical of those in a working environment in this industry.

This includes access to:

  • software development environment required to apply advanced programming skills in another language
  • technical and design documentation
  • organisational deliverables
  • integrated development environment (IDE).

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
