Evidence Guide: CUVACD101A - Use basic drawing techniques
Tips for gathering evidence to demonstrate your skills
The important thing to remember when gathering evidence is that the
more evidence the better - that is, the more evidence you gather to
demonstrate your skills, the more confident an assessor can be that you
have learned the skills not just at one point in time, but are
continuing to apply and develop those skills (as opposed to just
learning for the test!). Furthermore, one piece of evidence that you
collect will not usualy demonstrate all the required criteria for a
unit of competency, whereas multiple overlapping pieces of evidence
will usually do the trick!

Instructions to Assessors
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 ability to:
produce more than one drawing that represents an object or idea
apply a range of basic drawing techniques.
Context of and specific resources for assessment
Assessment must ensure access to:
materials and tools used in drawing work.
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 observation of work in progress
review of drawings produced by the candidate
oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of drawing techniques and materials
review of portfolios of evidence
review of third-party reports from experienced practitioners.
Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands (e.g. literacy) and the needs of particular groups (e.g. people with disabilities and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties, such as speakers of languages other than English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).
Guidance information for assessment
Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended.
Required Skills and Knowledge
communication skills to:
clarify purpose of drawings
seek feedback to refine drawings
learning skills to respond to feedback from others to improve own drawing skills
literacy skills to read basic safety information
numeracy skills to deal with basic scaling and layout issues
materials and tools commonly used for drawing
different types of drawing
ways of minimising waste in drawing projects
OHS issues associated with tools and materials used in drawing work
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.
Appropriate people may include:
Techniques may include:
application of pigment
linear marks of differing character
linear marks to produce illusion of form in space
simple linear perspective
tonal ranges to produce illusion of form in space.
Tools and materials may include:
pastels and chalks
range of papers
wood or bark.
Objects or ideas may include:
artwork of any type, 2-D or 3-D
costume or wearable object
story or narrative
