Student Guide for Written Knowledge Assessment
Overview of AssessmentThis is a written assessment task you will be assess on your knowledge of diagnosing and repairing exhaust systems. The topics that will be covered in the assessment are: Prepare to diagnose and repair exhaust systemsDiagnose an exhaust systemRepair an exhaust systemComplete work processes This assessment will ensure that the elements, performance criteria, performance evidence and knowledge evidence required, and conditions are adhered to demonstrate competency in this unit assessment task. Read the assessment carefully before commencing.Your Assessor will use the assessment criteria in this document and will provide feedback / comment. You MUST answer all the questions in the assessment tasks in your own words and own handwriting. This is an “Open Book” assessment, and students can use the resources listed in the “Resources Required” section below.
Task/s to be assessedTo complete this written assessment, you will need to answer the 51 questions comprising of Multiple Choice, True and False, Fill-in the Gap and Short Answer questions.
Time allowedOn average, the Assessment should take 2 – 4 hours to complete.
LocationThis theory assessment will be completed in a classroom under the supervision of a trainer/assessor.
Decision making rulesTo receive a ‘satisfactory’ outcome for this assessment students MUST successfully answer all questions. If a student achieves less than 100%, they can reattempt the assessment after further study has taken place. Students who cannot achieve a minimum of 100% you will not have satisfactorily completed this assessment Your assessor will be looking for the following in this assessment task: – Work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to diagnosing and repairing exhaust systems, including procedures for working with hot components and exhaust systems producing toxic gasesOperating principles of features of exhaust systems and associated components, including scavenging and back pressureApplication, purpose and operation of exhaust systems and components, including:MufflersExtractor pipesCatalytic convertersDiesel particulate filtersDiagnostic testing procedures for exhaust systems, including:Exhaust leak testingVibration and noise locating proceduresBack pressure testingRepair procedures for exhaust systems, including procedures for removing, replacing and aligning componentsPost-repair testing procedures for exhaust systems.
Assessment conditionsAssessors MUST satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements. Competency 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 exhaust systems that they have worked on, 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 workplace Workplace instructions Manufacturer exhaust system specificationsTwo different vehicles with faults in the exhaust system components specified in the performance evidenceDiagnostic equipment for exhaust systems Tools, equipment and materials appropriate for repairing exhaust systems, including metal heating equipment.
Resources requiredLearning Resources available to students include: Automotive Technology (A System Approach) 6th Edition – Chapters 5, 6, 7, 32 and 33WebsitesTrainer 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.
Assessment 1 – Questioning
Written Assessment
  1. Identify five (5) important items of personal safety when diagnosing and repairing exhaust systems.
   
   
   
 
 

True or False question

  • When inspecting or working on the exhaust system, remember that its components get very hot when the engine is running. Contact with them could cause a severe burn. Also, always wear safety glasses or goggles when working under a vehicle?
Trueor False
  • What are the three (3) functions of the exhaust system?

True or False question

  • Some exhaust systems are designed with extractor pipes. These have one pipe for each exhaust port. The pipes are designed with long sweeps that prevent back pressure. They also provide a scavenging effect, which assists in extracting the exhaust gases from the cylinders, thereby increasing engine performance.
Trueor False
  • Name the twelve [12] components of the exhaust system below.
                         
  • What materials are exhaust pipes typically made from?
 
 
  • What is the function of the exhaust flex joint?
 
 
 

True or False question

  • The exhaust manifold collects the burnt gases as they are expelled from the cylinders and directs them to the exhaust pipe.
TrueorFalse

Multiple Choice question. Selected the correct answer.

  • Which of the following is NOT a metal used for producing exhaust manifolds?
  1. Cast iron.
  2. Aluminium.

True or False question

  1. Heat shields are usually made of pressed or perforated sheet metal.
TrueorFalse

True or False question

  1. Heat shields trap the heat in the exhaust system, which has a direct effect on maintaining exhaust gas velocity.
TrueorFalse
  1. Describe the construction of a muffler.
 


 
 

True or False question

  1. Two types commonly used are the reverse-flow and the straight-through mufflers.
Trueor False

TrueorFalse

True or False question

  • Broken or loose clamps and hangers can allow parts to separate or hit the road as the car moves causing vibrations.
Trueor False
