Evidence Guide

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the Performance Criteria, Required Knowledge and Skills, the Range Statement and the Assessment Guidelines for this Training Package.

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

Evidence of the following is essential:

Establish, monitor and evaluate a production cycle including the project management of all technical aspects of the project

Demonstrate an ability to find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources

Produce a portfolio covering a period of THREE months' information on the management of TWO multimedia projects that demonstrates establishing, monitoring and evaluating a production cycle including using attributes of specific multimedia interactivity. The portfolio should include material that covers defined components of a production cycle, concepts for multimedia integration, prototype sequences and attributes, product testing and quality considerations

Evidence for assessment may be gathered from assessment of the unit of competency alone or through an integrated assessment activity

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment must ensure:

evidence for assessment may be gathered from assessment of the unit of competency alone or through an integrated assessment activity

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.

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended.

Range Statement

The Range Statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Italicised wording in the Performance Criteria is detailed below.
