Credits are gained by complete two projects and knowledge assessments.  There are a range of class projects which can be made or the student can negotiate with the teacher to make a design of their own. These include a cape cod chair, folding stepladder or the students own design.

Unit Standards can be replaced or mixed with Achievement standards (allowing Achieved/Merit/Excellence and endorsements) if a different career pathway is required.
