especially on the CORE COMPETENCIES .The heart of the Assessment Tools Development Process is the preparation of the practical projects which will enable the assessor to determine whether or not the candidate has the competence/s required by the qualification.

. The Practical project for a qualification assessment may consist of 1 or more projects which will include the competencies covered by the Assessment Tool. knowledge and proper work attitude.  A project may cover various competencies that can enable the candidate to demonstrate his skills.

the cost including time duration must be seriously considered in the development of the project. While it is necessary that all competencies must be observed during assessment. .

We should ask the question. for competency-based assessment. we should choose materials which are readily available and with the lowest possible cost. However. we may choose to develop project on the most complicated competence. When the qualification involves competencies which have related skills and knowledge. this would not be a good model. without necessarily sacrificing the quality of the assessment process. since fulfilling this would mean that the other competencies downstream can also be achieved. the project. 'Is using these materials not affecting the skills requirements of the job?'  In .

Working drawings and measurements must be clearly prepared. but still the project must use the standard sizes of the materials as used in industry. . Design of the projects where measurements would allow for recycling of materials must be pursued. such that only the important components showing the competencies measured must be present. using Auto CAD or similar software.The size and configuration of the project must be properly managed. Project must be developed to simulate the actual practice in industry and not what has been usually done in the training laboratory or workshop.

Proper use of hand or power tools 5. the Assessor verifies the knowledge of the candidate in the above aspects. Work procedures 2. by asking questions . Identification & use of materials 4. This is the role of the oral questioning part of the practical task assessment. Measurements of the quality of finished product . Tolerance must be observed. Machine operations 3.A. If the answers are unsatisfactory. Assessment Procedures for Practical tasks . A rating sheet must be used to compare the finished product to the specifications in the drawing and in the test package. Observation of Safety ( If any of these is observed to be defective or risky. Observation by the Assessor on the following: 1. the assessment should stop.) B.

and a possible alignment be carried out. supplies and materials you will use in this project. . Perform panel repairs (beating and split. equipment. The owner requested for a repair. Write down on the worksheet the list of tools.AUTOMOTIVE BODY REPAIR – L II Practical Project Sample PROJECT A .

Time = 2 hours A. metal finishing incorporating filler and plastic) Situation: A car has a damage due to an accident on the middle portion of the front right side of the door panel.


If this is not properly done by the candidate in this worksheet. This could be Materials & Tools requisition forms. the tools and materials he needs to repair a car of a customer. .Note: In this project a typical situation is depicted in the service center. The worksheet is a document which is prepared by the candidate to assist him in the performance of the core competence required in the project and is included in the some Assessment Tool package. the assessor can conclude that he does not possess the competences covered in the assessment. or Accounting worksheets required by the Accounting Assessment Tool. where the assigned mechanic has to request from the stock room. because he does not know what tools and materials to be used.
