Assessing Animation

We’re all getting a bit confused as to what we have to do for all of the units involving animation.  Below is a list of the assessment evidence requirements for the units we have selected.  You can also download the handout and checklist if that’s helpful.

Also, as I’ve just realised that I’ve forgotten about the test plan in the Interactive Multimedia unit, this summary should be considered a handy summary only.  Please make sure you’ve consulted the SQA unit specification and ASP as well!

Meanwhile here’s is a badly photographed hand-written summary of some other animation units.

Animation Fundamentals (F1KB 11)

Draw, import and manipulate graphics:

  • Draw 10 images using line, rectangle, ellipse and fill tools
  • Import 5 images from legitimate sources and manipulate two of them

Create an animation using 10 keyframes of new and imported pictures using layers and timelines:

  • Frame by frame animation of 10 keyframes
  • Tweened animation with 3 keyframes
  • And a button control

 

Interactive Multimedia (F180 11)

Plan and create an animation with:

  • shape and motion tweening,
  • sound
  • play and stop controls
  • and upload your animation onto a website

Plan and create a digital narrative with:

  • text, audio and graphics (still images, video or animation),

Create a multimedia ‘video’ (in Flash or Powerpoint) lasting at least 30 seconds including:

  • 30 seconds of sound
  • An animation
  • A bitmapped graphic (eg a photo)
  • A vector graphic (eg a picture made up of shapes like circles)
