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:

In the range from planned shutdown to emergency response

Demonstrate an ability to find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources

Use EITHER fusion cooking OR reaction to manufacture TWO batches of varnish/resin, including in-process testing, according to manufacturer's and job specifications, OHS requirements, enterprise procedures and the listed Performance Criteria.

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.


Submission Requirements

List each assessment task's title, type (eg project, observation/demonstration, essay, assignment, checklist) and due date here

(add new lines for each of the assessment tasks)


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 such as safely switching off machinery before cleaning is started

communicating ideas and information by completing logs and checklists during manufacturing

collecting, analysing and organising information by sampling the mix to maintain quality standards

planning and organising activities by completing startup checks prior to manufacture

teamwork when completing the mix in association with fellow workers

mathematical ideas and techniques by correctly measuring materials required for the mix

problem-solving skills by anticipating production difficulties and taking preventive action

use of technology by using manufacturing and measuring equipment

Required knowledge

OHS concerns that are elated to the production of varnish/resin

manual handling issues that arise in the manufacture of varnish/resin

safety equipment that is required and what do you need to check when fitting and using

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.

Processes may include:

Fusion cooking or reaction.

Materials may include:

Range of raw materials/consumables, pigment, varnish, inks, chemicals used in cleaning.

Enterprise procedures may include:

Range of enterprise procedures within defined work area as documented in enterprise procedures (SOPs).

OHS may include:

Includes relevant legislation, regulations and enterprise policies/guidelines.

Machines/equipment may include:

Machines/equipment may include gel tanks, reactors, tanks, refrigeration units, air compressor, pan washer/scrubbers, pumps, valves, other vessels.

Shutdown may include:

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.
