Unit Descriptor

Unit descriptor 

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop drawings which represent and communicate the concept. This is a core unit which complements all the specialisation units. It is different from the drawing specialisation units which focus on drawing as an art form. This unit goes beyond the scope of CUVCOR07B Use drawing techniques to represent the object or idea and CUVCOR08B Produce drawings to represent and communicate the concept in terms of the complexity of skill requirement, use of techniques and sophistication of representation. This work would usually be carried out under supervision.

This is a core unit which underpins many other specialisation units.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

Required Skills and Knowledge

REQUIRED SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE 

This section describes the skills and knowledge required for this unit.

Required skills :

  • literacy skills sufficient to read product safety labels and instructions and to prepare drawings for presentation
  • numeracy skills sufficient to determine layout issues and to deal with scaling.

Required knowledge :

  • physical properties and capabilities of a wide range of materials and tools used in drawing
  • general knowledge of the elements and principles of design and their specific application to drawing
  • general knowledge of different approaches to drawing and how other practitioners use drawing to represent the concept
  • awareness of copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation in relation to drawing

Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

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.

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

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

  • production of a series of drawings which demonstrate a command of the selected techniques and which successfully communicate the concept.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

The assessment context must provide for:

  • practical demonstration of skills using selected tools and materials to produce and present drawings which represent and communicate the concept.

Method of assessment 

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

  • direct observation of the production of drawings
  • evaluation of drawings
  • questioning and discussion about candidate's intentions and the work outcome
  • verbal or written reports
  • review of portfolios of evidence
  • third party workplace reports of performances by the candidate.

Assessment of this unit requires access to the materials, resources and equipment needed to apply drawing techniques to represent and communicate the concept.
