Evidence Guide: CUVCOR08B - Produce drawings to represent and communicate the concept
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!
CUVCOR08B - Produce drawings to represent and communicate the concept
What evidence can you provide to prove your understanding of each of the following citeria?
Prepare to use a range of drawing techniques.
Identify suitable techniques to represent the concept. Select tools and materials required for the identified techniques. Consider presentation context for the drawings in selecting techniques, tools and materials.

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.
Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit
The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:
production of more than one drawing which demonstrate a command of the techniques and are appropriate for the presentation context.
Context of and specific resources for assessment
The assessment context must provide for:
practical demonstration of skills using a range of tools and materials to produce drawings which represent and communicate the concept.
Method of assessment
Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:
direct observation of work in progress
evaluation of drawings
questioning and discussion of candidate's intentions and work
verbal or written reports
review of portfolios of evidence
third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate.
Assessment of this unit requires access to the materials, resources and equipment needed to apply a number of drawing techniques.
Required Skills and Knowledge
literacy skills sufficient to read product labels and instructions
numeracy skills sufficient to deal with basic scaling and layout issues.
general knowledge of the physical properties and capabilities of a range of commonly used drawing tools and materials
general knowledge of different approaches to drawing and how other practitioners use drawing to represent the concept
awareness of copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation in relation to drawing
overview knowledge of the elements and principles of design
environmental and occupational health and safety issues associated with the tools and materials used for drawing.
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.
The concept may relate to an object or idea and may include:
paintings or prints
technical solutions for a design or work.
Techniques may include:
digital drawing techniques
integration of text and drawing
linear marks of differing intensity and character
linear marks to produce illusion of form in space
tonal range to produce illusion of form in space
use of positive/negative space.
Materials may include:
a range of graphite pencils
a range of papers
pastels and chalks
The presentation context may include:
proposal for product or work development
proposals in response to a brief
visualisation of a concept.
Equipment may include:
drawing and design applications
