Apply software applications to digital production

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. Select and assess software

1.1 Publication requirements of layout brief are determined to align with digital production processes and feasibility

1.2 Range of software applications is selected according to job specifications

1.3 Appropriate software applications are used to complete components of the job according to manufacturer's specifications and enterprise standards

2. Arrange elements on page

2.1 Client copy and images are assembled to conform to the design brief

2.2 Text is prepared and required fonts and font size are applied

2.3 Basic elements and images are created and arranged on the page to conform to the design brief

2.4 Image resolution and colour mode are determined according to job specifications, help function is accessed, if required, and solutions to queries found

2.5 Document set-up is completed to conform to the design brief and job specifications

3. Check quality

3.1 Text is reviewed for possible errors and omissions, and errors are discussed with client or supervisor

3.2 Basic elements are arranged to adhere with design principles

3.3 Copy is proofed and rechecked for errors, omissions and overall layout design

3.4 Necessary changes are made and reviewed and re-proofed as required

3.5 Job is saved according to enterprise procedures

4. Use RIP to output job
