Fabricate and assemble shopfront structures

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.


Undertake on-site measurements.


Job requirements are obtained, confirmed and applied to planning.


Site drawings are assessed and site is accessed according to client and workplace requirements.


Datums and gridlines or reference points are located and confirmed using site plans and levelling techniques.


Surrounding structures and surfaces are checked for plumb, level, line and square.


Measurements are taken of internal width and height, if applicable, and are recorded.


Inconsistencies in dimensions, layout or location of structure outside the specified tolerances are noted and reported to appropriate personnel.


Position of proposed frames and fittings are marked out on surrounding surfaces using non-permanent markers.


Glazier is notified of site measurements for glass.


Plan and prepare to produce shopfront structure.


Off-site work area is inspected, conditions and hazards are identified and reported as required, and health and safety requirements are confirmed with relevant personnel and applied to planning.


Detailed working drawings are prepared from design drawings according to workplace procedures.


Tools and equipment are selected to carry out tasks according to job requirements, checked for serviceability, and faults are rectified or reported before starting work.


Materials appropriate to the work application are identified, efficient cutting plan and list are prepared, and quantity requirements calculated according to job requirements.


Materials are obtained, prepared, safely handled and located ready for use.


Components are set out according to workplace procedures.


Fabricate components of shopfront structure.


Static machines are used to produce specified component parts according to job requirements.


CNC machine is programmed to produce specified component parts according to manufacturer specifications.


CNC machine program operations are tested in dry run simulation mode, and alarm settings and program are edited where required using the control station.


Specified work pieces are produced using CNC machine automatic mode according to manufacturer specifications.


Where required, straight or curved lines are cut in small sections of glass according to job specifications.


Components parts are checked for correct measurements and compliance with quality requirements according to workplace procedures.


Assemble components of shopfront structure.


Appropriate area is selected and material components are laid out for assembly.


Framework is assembled, with overall dimension checked for conformity to location and design, and using appropriate fixings and fasteners.


Frame is checked for square and adjusted where required.


Areas are laminated where required and fittings are fixed to components according to job requirements.


Prepare for transport to work site.


Shopfront components that are too large for transport to work site or too heavy for safe lifting are disassembled into smaller sections.


Packaging requirements for separate components and sections are identified and arranged.


Components and sections are labelled and placed in appropriate area of work site for collection.


Assembly diagram is numbered and located for inclusion in delivery instructions.


Clean up.


Waste and unwanted material are disposed of safely.


Unused materials are stored or stacked.


Tools and equipment are cleaned, maintained and stored according to workplace requirements.
