Assessment conditionsCompetency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting. Assessment MUST include direct observation of tasks. Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals MUST provide evidence that links them to the basic electrical circuits they have tested and repaired, e.g. repair orders. Assessors MUST verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application. The following resources MUST be made available: Automotive repair workplace or simulated workplaceWorkplace instructionsManufacturer electrical system specificationsVehicle or machinery with faults in the basic electrical circuits specified in the performance evidenceElectrical test equipment to test basic electrical circuits and componentsConsumable materials relevant to repairing basic electrical circuits and components, including connectors, terminals, wire, electrical tape and heat shrink sleevingElectrical repair tools, equipment and materials relating to basic electrical circuits and components. Assessors of this unit MUST satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
Resources requiredLearning Resources available to students include: Automotive Technology (A System Approach) 7th Edition – Chapters 2, 5, 6, 7, 15, 16 & 20Websites – Ohm’s law calculator http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-ohmslaw.htm Fluke 87 Multimeter http://media.fluke.com/documents/80v_____umeng0200.pdf Trainer Handouts
Results/Re-assessmentThe Assessor will grade the assessment and record the result on the front page of this document (S) – Satisfactory if all observable behaviours are correct and (NS) not satisfactory if any areas are left incorrectFeedback will be provided on either resultWhere a student receives a ‘NS – Not Satisfactory’ result, the assessor will discuss the area of the non-compliant observable behaviour and an opportunity given for re-assessment. This may be through direct observation or a different method of assessment e.g. verbal/oral questioning, problem solving exercise. If the outcome is again not satisfactory the student result will be deemed (NYC) not yet competent. Additional feedback will be given, and a time agreed upon for further assessment after additional training and skills practice has taken place, this information will be recorded, dated and signed in the re-assessment area on the last page of this documentWhere all the assessment tasks have been graded (S) Satisfactory, the student will be deemed C – Competent for the practical component and the result recorded and signed in the area indicated on the last page of this document
Reasonable AdjustmentIf the participant is unable to undertake the written assessment as designed, an interview (verbal questioning) may be used as an alternate approach.
