Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • estimate and measure familiar simple amounts
  • interpret measurement on simple measuring equipment
  • add, subtract and multiply simple measurements
  • record results using appropriate unit.

Note: Where a specific volume and/or frequency is not specified, evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence of the following knowledge must be demonstrated:

  • abbreviations of familiar units of measurement
  • which units of measurement to use for length, mass and capacity.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment texts and tasks reflect those typically found in the workplace.

Advice and support is available if requested.

A basic calculator can be used.

Culturally appropriate processes and techniques suited to the language, literacy and numeracy capacity of individuals and the work being performed must be used.

Reasonable adjustments can be made to ensure equity in assessment for people with disabilities.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements, have a sound knowledge of the ACSF and have demonstrable expertise in the vocational contextualisation and assessment of the core skill - numeracy.
