Develop a basic design concept

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 Assess brief requirements

1.1 Printing requirements of layout brief are determined to align pre-press processes with printing feasibility

1.2 Brief is broken down into stages of production to determine a plan

1.3 A plan of action is designed to meet time requirements of each stage so deadlines are identified and adhered to

1.4 Correct industry-standard terms of design and typography are used to facilitate communication

2 Assemble layout

2.1 Client copy and images are assembled according to brief requirements

2.2 Library files are accessed for relevant data to conform to brief requirements

2.3 Appropriate equipment and materials to complete the layout are assembled so brief is undertaken efficiently

2.4 Design area is cleaned and prepared, ready for use

3 Render simple graphic design

3.1 Client requirements are checked to ensure design concept matches the brief

3.2 Preliminary graphic design ideas are constructed according to the brief

3.3 Simple graphic design concept is rendered electronically to conform to client brief

3.4 Rendered graphic design is checked for conformance with client brief

4 Produce finished artwork

4.1 Layout grid is created to meet client brief specifications

4.2 Type is selected for readability and style, and fitted into grid space allocated to conform to client brief

5.3 Layout is rendered ready to present to client

6 Tidy materials and store data

6.1 Equipment and materials are returned to storage according to enterprise procedures

6.2 Design data and materials are saved and/or filed ready for future retrieval according to enterprise procedures
