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.

Overview of assessment 

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

Evidence of the following is essential:

  • correctly maintain substrate operation and complete relevant finishing process according to job specifications and within the production timeframe
  • demonstrate an ability to find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources
  • competency must be demonstrated on any converting or finishing equipment (whether involving one process or a sequence of processes)
  • demonstrate all safety devices on the machine
  • on the chosen equipment TWO different jobs must be demonstrated preferably involving different types, sizes and weights of substrate according to manufacturer's and job specifications, enterprise procedures and the listed Performance Criteria NOTE: in the case of stand alone minor flat-bed or rotary cutting processes (as in ICPCF231B Set up machine for basic flat-bed cutting and ICPCF235B Set up machine for basic rotary cutting) THREE processes must be demonstrated.
  • demonstrate use of computerised control, monitoring and data entry systems if available and appropriate.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment must ensure:

  • assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these
  • off the job assessment must be undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment.

Method of assessment 

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate.

Guidance information for assessment 

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, for example any converting, binding and finishing basic set up units.
