Hardware & Processing – Purple Level

The Computing Progression Pathways suggests that at the purple level, on the theme of Hardware & Processing, a student should demonstrate that he/she:

  • Recognises and understands the function of the main internal parts of basic computer architecture. (Abstraction)
  • Understands the concepts behind the fetch-execute cycle. (Abstraction) (Algorithmic Thinking)
  • Knows that there is a range of operating systems and application software for the same hardware. (Abstraction)
