Special notes

1   Range
    Candidates must select and demonstrate understanding of two different models used
    in software development, which may include but are not limited to – waterfall,
    prototype, spiral, iterative, rapid application development.

2   Definition
    Graphical representation means an annotated diagram showing the patterns, stages
    and processes of the selected models.

Elements and performance criteria

Element 1

Describe computer software development life cycles.

Performance criteria

1.1       The description distinguishes phases of the life cycles for each selected model
          in terms of the procedures involved.

1.2       The phases of the life cycles and their relative position are identified using a
          graphical representation.

1.3       The description identifies the documentation typically associated with each
          phase of the life cycle according to its purpose.

Element 2

Compare models of software development.

Performance criteria

2.1       The selected models are compared in terms of their advantages and
          disadvantages.

Please note

Providers must be accredited by NZQA, or an inter-institutional body with delegated
authority for quality assurance, before they can report credits from assessment against
unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.

Industry Training Organisations must be accredited by NZQA before they can register
credits from assessment against unit standards.

Accredited providers and Industry Training Organisations assessing against unit standards
must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.

Accreditation requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this
standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The
AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations
wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for
tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
