Release 1

This version first released with FSK Foundation Skills Training Package Version 2.0.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to select and interpret information in routine tables, graphs and charts. This includes using routine calculations to interpret and compare information and methods of display.

An individual performing these tasks works independently and uses familiar support resources as needed.

This unit applies to individuals who use, or are preparing to use, numeracy skills to complete workplace activities. This includes existing workers and individuals preparing for employment through vocational education and training. This unit should be integrated and contextualised with vocational training to support achievement of vocational competency.

This unit is aligned to, but does not fully address, the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) numeracy core skill indicators .09, .10 and .11 at level 3 in the workplace and employment domain of communication.

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

  • routine and familiar workplace table
  • routine and familiar workplace graph/chart
  • interpret information in table and graph or chart above, including:
  • comparing data
  • determining and describing data features and trends
  • identifying data anomalies or misleading data pieces
  • making conclusions or summaries of data.

In the course of the above the candidate must demonstrate use of relevant technology, such as graphing calculators or spreadsheets.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including knowledge of:

  • types of statistical information
  • different types, purposes and uses of routine graphs and charts
  • common features of routine tables, graphs and charts
  • methods to perform calculations with data and information
  • methods to use data and information to inform or persuade
  • methods to identify misleading data
  • methods to perform reasonableness check of processes and outcomes in relation to the workplace context
  • informal and some formal mathematical written and oral language and symbolism
  • relevant technology, such as graphic calculators or spreadsheets.

Assessment Conditions

Competency is to be assessed in the workplace, a workplace simulated environment or a vocational training context.

Assistive technologies can be utilised to assist with oral and written communication.

Skills must be demonstrated using routine texts and tasks that reflect those typically found in a workplace.

The following resources are to be made available:

  • a calculator
  • tables, graphs and charts utilised in the performance evidence
  • own familiar support resources.

Assessors must:

  • satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards, and
  • have sound knowledge of the ACSF and performance features of the ACSF level being assessed, and
  • have demonstrable expertise, knowledge and skills in the vocational contextualisation and assessment of the core skill, numeracy, and
  • have completed the following or equivalent: 
  • TAESS00009 Address Foundation Skills in Vocational Practice Skill Set; or 
  • a higher level education qualification, such as:
  • TAE80113 Graduate Diploma of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice (and its equivalent TAE70111); or
  • Bachelor of Education, Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma of Education, or higher. This may include qualifications relating to TESOL, adult education or vocational education.
