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, the Range Statement and the Assessment Guidelines for this Training Package.

Overview of assessment

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

Evidence of the following is essential:

compliance with relevant legislation, regulations, standards, codes of practice and established safe practices and organisation policies and procedures for use of sensors, signal transmitters and final control units

maintaining a working knowledge of current organisation inventory procedures

working and communicating effectively and positively with others involved in the work

applying, within authority, the requirements of the job or work role in relation to:

selecting the appropriate equipment

checking the currency of calibration

measuring in accordance with recognised procedures

achieving work quality goals

completing work area housekeeping requirements including the documentation of project activity and process outcomes

modify activities to cater for variations in organisation context and environment.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

assessment of the competency should take place in a safe working environment in a passenger motor vehicle manufacturing plant or simulated environment using tools/equipment/machinery required for the production process without undue disruption to the production process

assessment is to occur under standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

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:

assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance (over time and in a range of organisation relevant contexts) together with application of underpinning knowledge

assessment methods must be by direct observation of tasks and include questioning on underpinning knowledge to ensure its correct interpretation and application

assessment may be applied under project related conditions (real or simulated) and require evidence of process

assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competency is able not only to be satisfied under the particular circumstance, but is able to be transferred to other circumstances.

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.

This section describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level, required for this unit.

Required skills

speak clearly and directly in order to communicate with others the data required for development purposes

apply teamwork to a range of situations to achieve mutual goals and outcomes

solve problems particularly in teams in order to meet performance indicators

show initiative in adapting to changing work conditions or contexts particularly when working across a variety of work areas

access, interpret and apply information on relevant organisation policies, procedures and instructions, particularly to ...

manage time when planning, preparing and organising work priorities

take responsibility for organising own work priorities.

Required knowledge

relevant Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental legislation, regulations, standards and codes of practice and organisation policies and procedures needed to carry out work in a manner which ensures the safety of people, equipment and the environment.

organisational supply/replenishment systems and processes for materials, equipment and tools

types of sensors, signal transmitters and final control elements and procedures for their safe use, operation and maintenance

evaluation techniques

established communication channels and protocols

problem identification and resolution

procedures for the recording, reporting and maintenance of organisation records and information.

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 in the Performance Criteria is detailed below. Add any 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.

Organisationrequirements may include:

access and equity principles and practices

environmental management (waste disposal, recycling and re-use guidelines)

emergency and evacuation procedures

equipment use procedures

ethical standards

legal obligations

maintenance and storage procedures

OHS requirements

organisational and site guidelines

policies and procedures relating to own role and responsibility

procedural manuals

quality assurance guidelines

quality and continuous improvement processes and standards

recording and reporting guidelines.

Sensors, signal transmitters and final control elements may include:

manometers

dead weight testers

vacuum systems

power supplies

control valve test beds

pneumatic

analogue

digital

test and calibration equipment

utilised for maintenance

calibration and testing of process signal converters

final control elements.

Instructions may include:

workplace procedures relating to the use and operation of tools and equipment

departmental requirements

organisation instructions, including job sheets, plans, specifications, drawings and designs

workplace procedures relating to reporting and communications

manufacturers' instructions for the use of equipment and materials.

Calibration may include:

refers to the tolerance accuracy of measurement. This is the degree of accuracy that the measuring equipment can achieve and when it was last checked against a recognised standard of accuracy. Users may maintain an internal standard of measure against which they periodically check the measuring equipment. In any event there are National and International standards which are maintained by independent agencies against which measuring equipment may be tested to ensure that it is within internationally agreed tolerances and so certified.

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.
