Overview of Assessment

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:
 equipment and materials required to produce technical drawings
 documented technical drawing requirements
 workplace documentation
 relevant people.
Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.


Assessment Tasks

Assessment will consist of thee technical drawings projects:Assessment tasks in this course are either formative or summative.
