Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: November 2018


This unit requires the individual to produce either a flat-bed die cut or embossed product and then clean down equipment.

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to produce either a flat-bed die cut or embossed product.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)

Employability Skills

This unit contains employability skills.




Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Evidence of the following is essential:

correctly produce either a flat-bed die cut or embossed product with different types and sizes of substrate and design of finished patterns according to job specifications and within the production timeframe

demonstrate all safety devices on the machine

competency must be demonstrated on EITHER flat-bed die cutting OR embossing. For either process produce TWO jobs with different types and sizes of substrate and design of finished patterns according to manufacturer's and job specifications, enterprise procedures and the listed Performance Criteria

demonstrate use of computerised control, monitoring and data entry systems if available and appropriate

evidence for assessment may be gathered from assessment of the unit of competency alone or through an integrated assessment activity.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

Assessment must ensure:

assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these

off the job assessment must be undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment.

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:

direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate.

Guidance information for assessment

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, for example:

ICPSU201C Prepare, load and unload reels and cores on and off machine

ICPSU202C Prepare, load and unload product on and off machine

ICPSU208C Operate and monitor machines (basic)

ICPCF225C Set up machine for basic flat-bed die cutting or embossing.

Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

Required skills

OHS in relation to operating machinery

communication skills when reading and interpreting job specifications and completing workplace documentation

planning and organising by correctly organising the materials to be used

teamwork by maintaining operations with fellow workers

using technology by adjusting machine devices and transportation systems

problem solving by interpreting test results and adjusting the machine as required

Required knowledge

OHS factors that must be considered when setting up and/or operating machine transport systems

areas of the reel stand that should be monitored to ensure trouble-free operation

area of the web control system that should be adjusted to maintain correct web tension

OHS factors that must be considered when setting up and/or operating machine delivery systems

checks needed when substrate is removed from the machine

OHS factors that must be considered when maintaining the cutting process

indicators that demand the replacement of a knife

pressure adjustment

OHS factors that must be considered when problem solving on the machine maintaining the cutting process

checks needed when packing cutting devices

procedure for correcting common machine faults

OHS factors that must be considered when conducting machine shutdown procedures

checksneeded when waste is removed from the machine and surrounding area for disposal or recycling

checksneeded during machine shutdown procedures?

checks needed when the cutting devices or knives are cleaned or replaced ready for the next run

areas of the machine that require cleaning at the end of the run

production records that need to be kept or written up

machine manuals, safety and other documentation that are relevant to this task and where they are kept

information that is included in these documents

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

Substrate handling may include:

wide or narrow reel or large or small sheet handling systems.

Cutting process may include:

flat-bed die

forme cutting

embossing.

In-line processes may include:

minor processes that are integral to this competency can include basic in-line operations such as perforating, numbering, slitting that do not in themselves constitute another defined unit of competency. Where a major in-line process is defined as a separate competency (eg flat-bed cutting, folding) it should be assessed as such.

Flat-bed cutting units may include:

a range of machines with dies or cutting and manual, semi-automated fully automated or computerised process control.

Shapes may include:

simple or single shapes.

Substrate types may include:

range of substrates within the major categories of paper, pressure sensitive material, board, plastics and related films, or metal.

Copy and paste from the following performance criteria to create an observation checklist for each task. When you have finished writing your assessment tool every one of these must have been addressed, preferably several times in a variety of contexts. To ensure this occurs download the assessment matrix for the unit; enter each assessment task as a column header and place check marks against each performance criteria that task addresses.
