Originate and refine hair design concepts

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


Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the required skills and knowledge section and the range statement. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.

1. Evaluate and explore needs and opportunities.

1.1. Research and evaluate existing information that informs new hair design concept development.

1.2. Expand the potential of new ideas that are outside the boundaries of ordinary thinking.

1.3. Identify and analyse factors that could have an impact on ideas or concepts to be developed, including potential for commercialisation.

1.4. Research and evaluate relevant ideas and approaches from other hairdressing practitioners with consideration of intellectual property, moral rights and copyright requirements.

1.5. Develop preliminary ideas on innovative and different ways to address needs and opportunities.

3. Refine hair design concepts.

3.1. Ensure concept development process is open to ongoing refinement and testing.

3.2. Seek input and feedback on concepts from relevant stakeholders.

3.3. Seek specialist advice on creative and technical aspects of proposals as required.

3.4. Compare concepts with best practice examples of similar products, programs, processes or services.

3.5. Use a range of creative and practical criteria to determine the advantages and disadvantages of different concepts.

3.6. Evaluate constraints on the realisation of concepts or ideas.

3.7. Refine proposals based on analysis and feedback.
