Develop and refine illustrative work

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.

1. Interpret briefs for illustrative work

1.1 Interpret the specifications of illustration briefs

1.2 Discuss and clarify issues about specifications, parameters and constraints with relevant people as required

1.3 Evaluate client requirements to make decisions about style and content of illustrative work

1.4 Source and evaluate information pertinent to briefs

2. Organise resources

2.1 Calculate, select and organise equipment, tools and materials based on the requirements of the work

2.2 Set up a safe and efficient workspace

2.3 Prepare, maintain, store and dispose of all resources according to each item's needs and according to workplace procedures

3. Test design approaches for illustrative work

3.1 Produce preliminary visual representations that take account of intellectual property requirements

3.2 Identify possible illustrative approaches and establish criteria, in line with the brief, for selecting final approach

3.3 Experiment with different illustrative techniques to test a range of approaches that will best communicate ideas required by the brief

3.4 Evaluate testing processes against criteria and select approach that best meets requirements of briefs

3.5 Critique own work for conceptual success and technical execution and seek feedback, as required

3.6 Refine and accurately document the illustrative approach based on testing processes

4. Produce finished illustrative work

4.1 Create illustrations using techniques selected from experimentation and testing, considering and applying elements and principles of design

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

4.3 Seek and consider feedback from key people to refine illustrative work as required

4.4 Present finished work within agreed work parameters
