Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • perform routine measurements
  • convert between routine units of measurement
  • perform routine measurement calculations
  • 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:

  • metric unit prefixes meaning of milli, centi, kilo
  • use of appropriate routine equipment e.g. setting weight scales at zero before weighing.

Assessment Conditions

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

Individuals can access own familiar support resources.

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.
