Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment

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

It is essential that competence is fully observed and there is ability to transfer competence to changing circumstances and to respond to unusual situations in the critical aspects of:

communicating effectively with others involved in or affected by the work

identifying quality system procedures and needs

identifying performance indicators

conducting final quality checks on completed work orders

reporting on the quality of processes and work outcomes

monitoring and adjusting performance indicators to meet changing circumstances

processing and implementing recommendations for change.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

This unit may be assessed in conjunction with units which form part of the normal job role

Assessment of this unit must be completed on the job or in a simulated work environment which reflects a range of quality processes and procedures

The following should be made available:

a workplace or simulated workplace

situations requiring worksite quality systems maintenance

worksite quality policies and procedures

worksite quality documents system

personnel

materials, tooling and equipment

a qualified workplace assessor.

Method of assessment

It is preferable that assessment reflects a process rather than an event and occurs over a period of time to cover the varying circumstances. Evidence of performance may be provided by customers, team leaders/members or other persons subject to agreed authentication arrangements.

Quality procedures

Quality procedures may:

be contained in worksite quality system documentation, work instructions, safe work procedures, product specifications, equipment maintenance schedules, technical procedures and adopted or specifically prepared standards

Performance indicators

Performance indicators are to:

account for issues of time, quantity, quality and cost factors and may include establishing time targets for own work, identifying reasonable criteria for evaluating own work outcomes, identifying measures to avoid wastage, identifying reasonable criteria to judge internal and/or external customer satisfaction and identifying processes to ensure a 'right first time' approach

Quality problems

Quality problems may include:

misdiagnosed faults, jobs requiring rework, jobs which do not meet customer requirements and repairs which do not fix the problem within the allocated timeframe

Legislative requirements

Copy and paste from the following performance criteria to create an observation checklist for each task. When you have finished writing your assessment tool every one of these must have been addressed, preferably several times in a variety of contexts. To ensure this occurs download the assessment matrix for the unit; enter each assessment task as a column header and place check marks against each performance criteria that task addresses.
