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 SFLDEC302A, 'Design floristry products'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Design floristry products' 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
1. Determine the product style and construction components.
1.1. Generate some initial design ideas for the style of the product giving consideration to its function and the brief and budget to be followed.
1.2. Consider and apply the elements and principles of design when generating initial and ongoing design ideas for a range of key and frequently sold floristry products until the final product plans are achieved.
1.3. Itemise all proposed components of the product to be constructed.
1.4. Identify potential problems for constructing the product and discuss and resolve any issues with relevant personnel.
2. Assess ideas for the production of floristry products.
2.1. Develop a range of creative ideas for the construction of the floristry product.
2.2. Consider the merits of all ideas and discuss with relevant personnel so that new ideas can be considered.
2.3. Consider the implications of the design ideas on technical feasibility, cost, style and function of the floristry product.
2.4. Consider new ideas and make changes to the floral design.
2.5. Create notes or sketches of all design ideas to meet construction requirements.
3. Trial the floristry product.
3.1. Trial the use of different flower and plant materials considering and applying the elements of design.
3.2. Trial different styles considering and applying the principles of design.
3.3. Trial different construction materials, techniques and ancillary items considering and applying the elements and principles of design.
3.4. Trial varied wrapping and presentation materials to enhance the floristry product considering and applying the elements and principles of design.
3.5. Consider negative environmental impacts of all materials and techniques used and minimal impact practices to reduce these.
3.6. Keep accurate records of all designs produced during the trial process.
4. Evaluate and record the floral design.
4.1. Review the design options to ensure the product to be constructed is consistent with the creative and costing requirements.
4.2. Review the design options to ensure the product will incorporate all component elements required.
4.3. Consider the different approaches used and select the best product style and technique for construction.
4.4. Develop a job specification for use during the construction phase.
4.5. Evaluate own performance in designing the floristry product and note areas for future self-improvement.
