Evidence Required

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the Performance Criteria Required Skills and Knowledge the Range Statement and the Assessment Guidelines for this Training Package

Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Evidence of the following is essential

compliance with relevant legislative regulations standards codes of practice and establish safe practices and enterprise policies and procedures for managing personal work priorities

maintaining a working knowledge of current work systems and practices

working and communicating effectively and positively with others involved in the work

applying within authority the requirements of the job or work role in relation to

achieving production goals

achieving work quality goals

responding positively to changing work requirements

read and interpret work drawingswork orders

establish job processes and material requirements

Context of and specific resources for assessment

assessment of the competency should take place in a safe working environment in a passenger motor vehicle manufacturing plant or simulated environment using toolsequipmentmachinery required for the production process without undue disruption to the production process

assessment is to occur under standard and authorised work practices safety requirements and environmental constraints

Method of assessment

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge The following examples are appropriate for this unit

assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance over time and in a range of workplace relevant contexts together with application of underpinning knowledge

assessment methods must be by direct observation of tasks and include questioning on underpinning knowledge to ensure its correct interpretation and application

assessment may be applied under project related conditions real or simulated and require evidence of process

assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competency is able not only to be satisfied under the particular circumstance but is able to be transferred to other circumstances
