Digital Solutions enables students to learn
about algorithms, computer languages and
user interfaces through generating digital
solutions to problems. Students engage with
data, information and applications to create
digital solutions that filter and present data in
timely and efficient ways while
understanding the need to encrypt and
protect data. They understand computing’s
personal, local and global impact, and the
issues associated with the ethical integration
of technology into our daily lives.
Students use problem-based learning to
write computer programs to create digital
solutions that: use data; require interactions
with users and within systems; and affect
people, the economy and environments.
They develop solutions using combinations
of readily available hardware and software
development environments, code libraries or
specific instructions provided through
Students create, construct and repurpose
solutions that are relevant in a world where
data and digital realms are transforming
entertainment, education, business,
manufacturing and many other industries.

Schools devise assessments in Units 1 and 2 to suit their local context.
In Units 3 and 4 students complete four summative assessments. The results from each of the
assessments are added together to provide a subject score out of 100. Students will also receive
an overall subject result (A–E).
