Evidence Guide: MTMP2035C - Operate nose roller
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
The meat industry has specific and clear requirements for evidence. A minimum of three forms of evidence is required to demonstrate competency in the meat industry. This is specifically designed to provide evidence that covers the demonstration in the workplace of all aspects of competency over time.
These requirements are in addition to the requirements for valid, current, authentic and sufficient evidence.
Three forms of evidence means three different kinds of evidence - not three pieces of the same kind. In practice it will mean that most of the unit is covered twice. This increases the legitimacy of the evidence.
All assessment must be conducted against Australian meat industry standards and regulations.
Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit
Competency must be demonstrated at chain speed.
Context of, and specific resources for assessment
