Assessment

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills: - interpreting information on written job sheets, instructions, standard operating procedures, safe working procedures and other applicable reference documents; - determining machine/process sequences; - verbally conveying routine and familiar instructions; - checking and adjusting machine and replacing worn or damaged tooling; - checking and clarifying task-related information, and; - measuring to specified tolerances.Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - characteristics and hazards of machine/process; - tooling, equipment and timing requirements of the machine's operations; - common product faults or defects and adjustments; - consequences of not instructing the machine operator; - use and application of personal protective equipment; - safe work practices and procedures, and; - strategies for conveying routine instructions.
