This achievement standard comprises of a three-part project on an opinion-based article. Part 1 is reading about an issue that interests you, Part 2 is looking at your opinion on the issue, and Part 3 is looking at how reliable your information is (we don't want 'fake news'). This counts towards literacy credits (and academic credits).

Unlike a ‘traditional’ exam, you won’t be sitting a test at the end of your learning. Instead, you will be able to work on the report over a period of time. It’s the digital equivalent of a research internal that you might do at school over 2-4 weeks; some is done in class and some is done at home. In the end, you submit the work you've created.
