Develop and refine metal-working techniques

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 and refine metal-working techniques' 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

1. Evaluate metal-working options for work projects

1.1 Evaluate how metalwork may be used in art and design practice to achieve desired outcomes or effects

1.2 Explore the potential of different metals and the technologies and tools required for their use

1.3 Investigate specific safety requirements associated with metalwork, including appropriate licensing considerations

1.4 Make an assessment of capacity to safely use metalwork in own practice

2. Select and prepare metal-working materials, tools and equipment

2.1 Establish the needs and purposes of specific work projects in consultation with relevant people

2.2 Establish technical specifications and creative parameters for metalwork

2.3 Select and set up materials, tools and equipment following all safety requirements and instructions

2.4 Calculate correct quantities of materials, avoiding wastage where possible

3. Use metal-working techniques

3.1 Cut, bend and shape metal to specification using correct tools and following all required safety procedures

3.2 Apply soldering, brazing and welding techniques following all required safety procedures

3.3 Achieve different outcomes and effects through safe experimentation with various media and materials

3.4 Recognise and resolve metalwork technical and design problems

3.5 Achieve precision and accuracy in use of metal-working techniques
