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. Identify devices and hardware components

1.1 Identify and categorise types of devices, including their components and characteristics that require installation and configuration

1.2 Identify and categorise peripheral hardware components that require installation and configuration

1.3 Define purpose, characteristics and suitability of device types and peripheral hardware components according to installation and configuration requirements

2. Plan and configure device components

2.1 Develop and document installation and configuration plan, with prioritised task and contingency arrangements, according to installation and configuration requirements

2.2 Obtain approval for plan from required personnel

2.3 Install and configure components according to plan, installation procedures and technical specifications

2.4 Test components and confirms error-free, enhanced performance

3. Evaluate modified system

3.1 Evaluate device connectivity according to vendor and technical specifications

3.2 Seek and respond to user feedback and update any identified performance issues

3.3 Evaluate and confirm device changes with client and required personnel

3.4 Document finalised process and outcomes and submit to required personnel

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

Skill 

Description 

Learning

  • Uses each experience to reflect on ways in which variables impact on outcomes and to gain insights into what constitute effective strategies and practices for future work

Numeracy

  • Identifies and interprets numerical data associated with device and component specifications

Reading

  • Interprets and analyses online and hard copy documentation containing complex Information Communications Technology (ICT) related terminology, acronyms and concepts

Writing

  • Uses spelling, grammar and plain English to articulate to audience
  • Uses ICT specific terminology, diagrams and syntax to convey explicit recommendations, requirements and information
