Levels 7 and 8 Achievement Standard

By the end of Level 8, students identify and analyse how representations of social values and viewpoints are portrayed in the media artworks they make, distribute and view.

Students use intent, structure, setting, characters and genre conventions to shape technical and symbolic elements for specific purposes and meanings. They evaluate how they and others use these genre conventions and elements to make meaning. They identify and analyse the social and ethical responsibilities of both makers and users of media artworks in social, cultural, historical and institutional contexts.

Students produce representations of social values and viewpoints in media artworks for particular audiences. They use production processes, equipment and technologies to achieve their intentions.
