PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The qualifying learner achieving this unit standard in combination with context expertise standard(s) will be able to use the information contained in maps and engineering drawings to assist in the completion of water related tasks. This competence will enable the learner to be able to select resources required for water reticulation tasks and read maps to identify the location of work sites. This will ensure that the water related tasks are completed efficiently and effectively. In acquiring this competence the qualifying learner will lay a good foundation for future learning and better understand the broader context of context of own work.

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
Identify, use and explain different maps 

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1

ASSESSMENT CRITERION NOTES 
INTEGRATED ASSESSMENT
When conducting assessments, assessors must ensure that they are familiar with the full text of the unit standards being assessed. Assessors must ensure that the assessment covers the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes and essential embedded knowledge by developing assessment activities and tools, which are appropriate to the contexts in which the learners are working. These activities and tools may include self-assessment, peer assessment, formative and summative assessment. It may be more effective and efficient to assess a number of unit standards together in an integrated way, thus reducing the overall number of assessments and ensuring that commonalities that exist between a number of unit standards are captured in a way that makes sense for assessment.
