Other Resources

Students will be able to access course information and learning materials through CANVAS. 

CANVAS is an online resource with the lesson plans for each unit. Within CANVAS are the session lessons plans, assessments, resources and other materials required for completion of each unit of competency. 

Additional materials maybe provided in class and lists of relevant reference books, resources in the library and accessible Internet sites will be provided where possible. During the course, you will be directed to websites to enhance your knowledge and understanding of difficult concepts.


Overview of Assessment

To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all aspects required of the competency.   

Regular attendance is necessary. 

Assessment methods have been designed to measure your achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks and consist of theory and practical based tasks.


Assessment Tasks

The candidate must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the job role. There must be evidence that the candidate has:

•    read and correctly interpreted work order for the following 4 fixed restorations

•    fabricated the following 4 ceramic restorations using standard precautions and safe work practices to a standard that is suitable for insertion in the mouth:

-    1 maxillary or mandibular anterior crown

-    1 maxillary or mandibular posterior crown

-    1 anterior veneer

-    1 posterior inlay

•    critically evaluated the work produced to meet technical laboratory and patient requirements including:

-    shade of the ceramic matches the work order requirements

-    fit of the restoration is accurate

-    restoration is of an appropriate anatomical form, shape and surface finish

-    restoration is free of faults

-    restoration provides the correct occlusion and articulation

-    proximal contact areas are in contact with the contact areas of the adjacent teeth.

To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all aspects required of the competency and will incorporate a variety of methods including knowledge and skill based tasks and activities. Assessment methods have been designed to measure your achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks and you will be asked to personally demonstrate to your teacher/assessor the practical skills gained during this course to the relevant industry standards. 

 

Assessment activities will occur throughout this course and feedback will be provided at regular intervals. 

 

You will need to obtain Satisfactory (S) in all assessment tasks before a final grade of CA (Competency Achieved) can occur.
