AC 3.1

Apply techniques in completion of construction tasks.

Techniques are used effectively in the completion of a limited range of tasks. Outcomes of tasks are within acceptable levels of tolerance as a result of guidance and interventions. A range of techniques are used effectively in the completion of most specified tasks. Outcomes are within acceptable tolerances, achieved with limited guidance or intervention. A range of techniques are used effectively in the completion of specified tasks. Outcomes are mainly within specification tolerances and all within acceptable tolerances. Outcomes are achieved with limited guidance. A range of techniques are used effectively in the completion of specified tasks. Outcomes are within specification tolerances and achieved independently.

AC 3.3

Evaluate quality of construction task.

Identifies where construction tasks meet requirements. Evaluates quality of construction tasks. Judgements show some reasoning and consideration is given to both specification and success criteria, but lacks balance. Evaluates quality of construction tasks. Judgements are reasoned and equal consideration given to specification and success criteria.
