Setting up the System
For P5, learners must install at least one hardware and one software component in a stand-alone system. This is best evidenced with a witness statement or observation record and screenshots. Learners must use suitable safety equipment/tools and pay due regard to health and safety issues.
For P6, learners must configure some basic system settings, such as left and right mouse buttons, power saving options, screen resolution, desktop theme, font size, default language setting, default folder locations etc. They may have needed considerable prompting to do so. This is best evidenced with a witness statement or observation record and screenshots.
To achieve M3, learners will have configured system and software settings in order to make the system more appropriate for the specified purpose.
For P7, evidence will be provided by a test plan and subsequent test results. Screenshots may be relevant. Any test failures should be explained, with reasons.
For P8, evidence will be provided by a short report with screengrabs.
M3 is an extension of P7. Learners should gauge system performance in their tests and evaluating the data.
For D2, learners should offer suggestions on how the system could be improved, considering costs involved and potential benefits gained.
