Context of and specific resources for assessment

Assessment must ensure access to:

computer hardware, software and file storage

internet access for research purposes

copyright and intellectual property legislation

OHS legislation and enterprise policy

appropriate learning and assessment support when required

modified equipment for people with special needs.

Method of assessment

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

practical demonstration, where direct observation may need to occur on more than one occasion to establish consistency of performance

evaluation of projects, reports and logbooks

evaluation of portfolios of evidence that demonstrate the processes used in developing and realising the creative concept.

Guidance information for assessment

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, where appropriate.

Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally appropriate, and suitable to the communication skill level, language, literacy and numeracy capacity of the candidate and the work being performed.

Indigenous people and other people from a non-English speaking background may need additional support.

In cases where practical assessment is used it should be combined with targeted questioning to assess required knowledge.
