Adopt an innovative approach to creating production elements

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
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver CUAINN501, 'Adopt an innovative approach to creating production elements'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Reference books for 'Adopt an innovative approach to creating production elements' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria


Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria

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

1. Identify need for new techniques and media

1.1 Analyse design or production elements to determine areas where research and experimentation may be appropriate

1.2 Proactively assess the potential to use new techniques and media to maximise the effectiveness of production elements

1.3 Discuss ideas with relevant personnel and expand the range of ideas and options as a result of input from others

2. Conduct research

2.1 Undertake research to identify historical, cultural and other factors that might influence the use of techniques or media

2.2 Research, adapt and use relevant ideas and approaches from others giving due consideration to intellectual property, moral rights and copyright requirements

2.3 Identify specialists who may be able to contribute to the realisation of production elements

2.4 Maintain references in an accessible form to allow for use by other colleagues as required

2.5 Use research material to adapt styles for practical construction and performance needs

3. Experiment with new techniques and media

3.1 Coordinate trials to establish the best way to achieve desired effects under different lighting conditions

3.2 Follow safety procedures during experimentation according to organisational and legislative requirements

3.3 Assess results of experimentation, balancing the need for creative effectiveness and cost considerations

3.4 Take safety issues for production and performance personnel into account when developing new approaches

3.5 Select, adapt or introduce new materials, tools, equipment or technology for the achievement of innovative effects

3.6 Share information on the results of experimentation and make decisions about the use of techniques and media, taking into account problems encountered during trials

3.7 Use techniques arising from experimentation to create innovative production elements
