Develop 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

Reference books for 'Develop lighting designs' 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 describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Interpret creative brief

1.1 Analyse performance outlines and/or scripts to determine production concepts

1.2 Participate in preliminary concept meetings with relevant personnel to discuss lighting options and requirements

1.3 Identify factors that may determine and affect lighting design

1.4 Access and prepare relevant documentation and brief own lighting team on requirements

2. Research lighting design concepts and technologies

2.1 Identify and source references that may inform the design process

2.2 Analyse sources and references in context of design project

2.3 Evaluate impacts and potential of new and emerging technologies to inform the design

2.4 Collect, collate and adapt materials to develop initial design concepts

3. Generate and assess lighting design ideas

3.1 Generate a range of ideas for designs that respond sympathetically to the brief and different design elements, and provide creative solutions to technical lighting issues

3.2 Discuss ideas and collaborate with relevant personnel to maximise their contribution to initial concepts

3.3 Analyse ideas for implications on cost and time, technical feasibility, and their suitability for brief

3.4 Provide strategic lighting information that enhances production outcomes

4. Develop and document lighting designs

4.1 Consult with relevant personnel so additional or changed requirements and new ideas are considered and incorporated during the development of designs

4.2 Collaborate with relevant personnel to achieve consistent artistic interpretation

4.3 Evaluate initial concepts and select the most appropriate approach, in line with budget, research findings and ongoing reflection and discussion

4.4 Use initial concepts as the basis for developing lighting designs within the required timeframe that meet budget constraints, production schedules and relevant work health and safety (WHS) requirements, and other relevant factors

4.5 Complete documentation according to production requirements and enterprise procedures

5. Finalise lighting design

5.1 Present draft lighting plans and specifications to relevant personnel in an appropriate format and within required timeframes

5.2 Participate in initial and ongoing evaluation of draft designs

5.3 Negotiate and agree to modifications to designs and undertake necessary amendments

5.4 Agree to final designs and produce documentation to support implementation

5.5 Present final design, plans and specifications to relevant personnel and confirm all production requirements have been met
