Implement lighting designs

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. Clarify design requirements

1.1 Discuss lighting designs and plans with relevant production personnel to determine overall production needs

1.2 Generate a range of creative ideas to resolve technical and production issues relating to lighting and effects

1.3 Seek feedback on ideas from relevant production personnel to maximise creative input into lighting effects

1.4 Confirm availability of lighting equipment and lighting accessories to implement different options for lighting effects

1.5 Use a range of criteria to decide which options are most feasible and obtain necessary equipment and accessories according to enterprise procedures

1.6 Select design options that provide a correct visual interpretation of the script and production

2. Set up and test lighting options

2.1 Set up lighting equipment and accessories to test different options for lighting effects using appropriate light and exposure meters

2.2 Interpret information readouts and make necessary adjustments to achieve desired light quality

2.3 Adjust lighting equipment and lighting accessories to take account of camera types and capture media to be used

2.4 Correct mixed light sources to achieve a uniform colour balance, using corrective filters to meet creative and technical requirements

2.5 Participate in production meetings and evaluation of work-in-progress on lighting effects

2.6 Consult with relevant production personnel to reach agreement on final lighting configuration to be used and inform others as required

3. Participate in technical rehearsals

3.1 Rehearse technical aspects of a production and make changes to the lighting set-up according to production requirements and within required timeframes

3.2 Modify cue sheets and update pre-programmed automated systems according to final shooting requirements

3.3 Amend lighting effects in consultation with relevant production personnel to take account of limitations imposed by the type of camera or other aspects of productions

3.4 Check required changes to lighting operations are implemented and relevant documentation is completed prior to actual production

3.5 Arrange appropriate supervision to maintain continuity of lighting throughout the production period

4. Monitor lighting operations during productions

4.1 Check operational aspects of lighting equipment and lighting set-up are correctly prepared for production within required timeframes

4.2 Confirm placement of lighting equipment and accessories is mapped and connections to correct power sources and consoles meet legislative and work health and safety (WHS) requirements are recorded

4.3 Maintain lighting conditions throughout production so image and light quality meet required stylistic effects and technical quality requirements for editing and post-production

4.4 Identify and rectify basic problems and faults using appropriate test equipment and according to enterprise and WHS procedures
