The techniques to be studied will be defined as ‘advanced’ because:
- The range of data entry, manipulation and outputting techniques will be complex and non-routine; the process of selecting appropriate techniques may involve research, identification and application.
- Tools, formulas and functions needed to analyse and interpret the required information require complex and non-routine knowledge and understanding (for example, data restrictions, data validation using formula, pivot tables, data maps);
- The software tools and functions will be complex and at times require new learning, which will involve having the idea that there may be a tool or function to do something (eg improve efficiency or create an effect), exploring technical support, self-teaching and applying.
Typical examples may include cost benefit analysis, analysis of results from a questionnaire or survey, developing summary reports from a large data set, creating a personalised customer quotation from a standard price list.
Typical documents will require problem solving and creative thinking and may include – complex reports and content for publications such as web pages, journals, newsletters or other printed materials.
