Design and create 3-D digital models

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
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver ICTGAM413, 'Design and create 3-D digital models'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Design and create 3-D digital models' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Clarify work requirements

1.1 Clarify the requirements and purpose for the design, and creation, of 3-D digital models, with reference to the production documentation

1.2 Clarify organisational guidelines and work flow sequences to ensure that the production schedule deadlines are met with the relevant personnel

1.3 Select the software that best suits the type of production and delivery platform for which 3-D digital models are being designed and created

1.4 Gather and analyse reference materials to help with the design and visualisation of 3-D models

2. Design 3-D digital models

2.1 Design, and sketch, the concept drafts of a 3-D model

2.2 Create the concept art for 3-D models

2.3 Create the prototypes of 3-D models

3. Create 3-D digital models

3.1 Use software features to block out models, to determine the correct proportions related to reference materials

3.2 Manipulate software features to apply basic lighting and shaders, as required

3.3 Ensure that models' topology allows appropriate deformation, as required

3.4 Progressively refine and check the integrity of models until they meet the design requirements

3.5 Submit the models to the relevant personnel for comment regarding whether the production requirements have been met, and make final adjustments as required

3.6 Render and output the models in the required format, and submit them to the relevant personnel by the agreed deadlines

3.7 Make backup copies of the files and complete the workplace documentation, according to enterprise procedures
