Experiment with ceramic surface treatments

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

Reference books for 'Experiment with ceramic surface treatments' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Develop ideas for ceramic surface treatments

1.1 Discuss, with key people, creative goals for own surface treatment work

1.2 Research, adapt and use relevant ideas and approaches from other practitioners and comply with intellectual property requirements

1.3 Use knowledge of different ceramic surface treatments to inform ideas

1.4 Consider how different surface treatment techniques and ideas can best work together

1.5 Assess the professional potential and presentation requirements for own ceramic work to inform ideas

1.6 Refine and confirm ideas based on experimentation, research and collaboration with others

2. Extend ceramic surface treatment skills

2.1 Evaluate potential for new approaches to surface treatments based on known capabilities of techniques already used

2.2 Adapt or introduce new equipment, tools and materials for to achieve different effects

2.3 Extend own capability with different treatments through experimentation on samples, practice pieces or work in progress

2.4 Assess safety and sustainability considerations for ceramic surface treatment work

3. Apply surface treatments

3.1 Coordinate required resources and set up according to safety requirements

3.2 Create surface treatments using techniques and media selected from research and experimentation, considering and applying elements and principles of design

3.3 Review and refine ideas and approaches based on ongoing experience with own work production

3.4 Modify applications according to required effect, and identify and resolve technical problems with surface treatments

3.5 Label ceramic surface treatment materials and store safely

3.6 Handle equipment, tools and materials safely; minimise and safely dispose of waste throughout production of ceramic work

3.7 Document development of own work and the research and ideas that informed it

4. Evaluate own work

4.1 Reflect on own conceptual development and technical execution of the work

4.2 Identify areas for future skill improvement and options to learn

4.3 Discuss completed work with others and consider all feedback
