Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1 Evaluate artwork and separations

1.1 Job is evaluated to identify required process

1.2 Job is evaluated to identify special colours

2 Produce special colour proofs

2.1 Colours are formulated according to job specifications

2.2 Film separations are exposed to appropriate medium

2.3 Colours are checked against job specifications using densitometers, spectrophotometers or visual matching to a supplied sample or Pantone Matching System (PMS) book

2.4 Colours are proofed in correct sequence according to job specifications

Foundation Skills

This section describes language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills incorporated in the performance criteria that are required for competent performance.

Release 1

This version first released with ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • produce TWO sets of special colour proofs that match original artwork and meet client and industry requirements
  • find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources
  • transfer underlying skills of proofing across the design and pre-press sectors (it is important that the substrate for reproduction is identified and the quality of the image is suitable for the printing process).

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • name systems used for matching colours
  • identify lighting conditions that should be used when matching colours
  • list effects of humidity on special colour proofing
  • outline factors to be considered when producing special colour for proofing
  • explain what determines correct colour sequence
  • explain how a densitometer is used for proof evaluation
  • explain how colour evaluation charts are used
  • list criteria for evaluating a colour proof
  • explain the manuals, safety and other documentation relevant to this task and briefly outline the relevant information.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the Pre-Press field of work and include access to special purpose tools, equipment and industry software packages.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
