Cambridge ICT Certificate – Desktop Publishing
DESKTOP PUBLISHING FOR A PURPOSE
In this module, learners expand their word-processing skills and build on skills developed, so that they can create documents for many purposes. They are able to use the software to change the look of the text, add tables and amend the page layout, including the way images are displayed in the document. They also learn how to make changes to the document as a whole, including adjusting margins, adding page numbering, or adjusting whether the page appears in landscape or portrait layout. They understand how to use the word-processing software to edit a document to make it more suitable for its purpose.

At the end of each module, students will be assessed by way of a test to show that they can demonstrate each of the learning objectives with no additional help from their teacher or their peers.
• Cambridge provides question papers and resource files for Cambridge ICT Starters.
At the end of each assessment test, the teacher marks the question papers and completes a record of assessment (Learning Objectives Record Sheet) for each learner. Samples of learners’ work are sent to Cambridge for external moderation. The sample will include the question papers completed by the learners, the required evidence of learners’ work and the Learning Objectives Record Sheet.
Learners will receive a Pass or Merit grade in each assessment test. A learner’s overall grade will be a combination of the results of all modules.
To achieve a Pass in a module, learners must meet all the Pass criteria specified on the Learning Objectives Record Sheet. To achieve a Merit in a module, learners must achieve all the Pass and Merit criteria within that module.
Cambridge will award a Merit grade for each level of Cambridge ICT Starters where the learner has achieved Merit grades in the majority of modules taken at each stage or level.
