Develop props construction plans to meet design requirements

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



1. Interpret set/props design from a construction perspective

1.1. Read and interpret the set/props design and other production documentation to determine the scope and nature of props requirements

1.2. Contemplate and consider props construction methods and techniques which will lead to the best realisation of the design concept while meeting production budgets

1.3. Identify potential practical construction problems and limitations with proposed designs and communicate these to relevant personnel

1.4. Assess potential solutions and develop creative approaches to minimise problems and limitations

1.5. Liaise with design and other relevant personnel to discuss and confirm construction requirements

2. Develop props construction plans and drawings

2.1. Translate the design into a practical plan for props construction in accordance with production requirements and relevant codes and regulations

2.2. Ensure that props construction meets the aesthetic requirements and provides the correct visual interpretation of the production requirements

2.3. Identify and consider any specific production or performance issues that will impact on the nature of props construction

2.4. Identify and consider any safety issues that will need to be integrated into the construction process and the way in which props will be used

2.5. Complete accurate specifications and drawings to a level of detail sufficient to guide the construction process

2.6. Correctly identify the materials, tools and equipment required for props construction, including budgetary estimates to meet production requirements

2.7. Communicate practical details for props construction to relevant personnel at the appropriate time to ensure deadlines can be met and workflow efficiency is maximised
