gathering evidence of operating ability over a range of situations. A bank of scenarios / case studies / what ifs will be required as well as bank of questions which will be used to probe the reason behind the observable action. 5. Method of Assessment Competency may be assessed through: 5.1.Case studies on solving problems in the workplace 5.2. Observation The unit will be assessed in a holistic manner as is practical and may be integrated with the assessment of other relevant units of competency. Assessment will occur over a range of situations, which will include disruptions to normal, smooth operation. Simulation may be required to allow for timely assessment of parts of this unit of competency. Simulation should be based on the actual workplace and will include walk through of the relevant competency components. 6. Context for Assessment In all workplace, it may be appropriate to assess this unit concurrently with relevant teamwork or operation units. machiii 04/11/06 16
