Evidence Guide

Underpinning skills and knowledge 

Assessment must include evidence of the following knowledge and skills:

broad understanding of artistic and technical elements of the production/event such as staging, lighting and sound elements, including roles and responsibilities of different cast and crew

the features and formats of source documents used to create production reference documents including scripts

the features of and formats used for different production reference documents, including production script, cue sheets and running sheets

documentation requirements for different types of production

documentation requirements of different cast and crew

communication techniques for the provision of prompts and cues.

Linkages to other units 

This unit has strong linkages to the following units, and combined training and/or assessment with those units may be appropriate:

CUESMT09A - Plot and rehearse cues

CUESMT08A - Call the production/event

Critical aspects of evidence 

The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:

correct interpretation of artistic and technical requirements of the production/event

ability to create accurate, clear and technically correct production reference documents

knowledge of the range of documentation used in different types of production.

Method and context of assessment 

The assessment context must provide for:

practical demonstration of skills through the creation and use of documents for at least two different productions

interaction with and involvement of a technical and performance team to reflect the collaborative nature of the process

presence of time pressures in the creation and updating of documents

Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess practical skills and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:

review of production reference documents prepared by the candidate

project activity which allows the candidate to create documents for different productions

written or oral questioning to assess knowledge of artistic and technical requirements of the production/event

review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the job performance by the candidate

Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands and the needs of particular groups (e.g. people with disabilities, and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties such as speakers of languages other than English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).

Resource requirements 

Assessment of this unit requires access to:

a production

source documentation on which production reference documentation can be based

a rehearsal venue.
