Evidence requirements
2.1
Engineering materials are compared qualitatively in terms of their physical
characteristics.
Range
physical characteristics– machinability, weldability, hardenability,
malleability, ductility, durability, thermal conductivity, electrical
conductivity, surface texture / finish, strength, density, hardness,
lustre, colour, melting point, wear resistance.
Outcome 3
Identify the selection factors and applications of engineering materials.
Evidence requirements
3.1
Common applications of engineering materials are identified.
Range
3.2
two applications for each engineering material.
Factors influencing the selection of materials are identified.
may include but is not limited to – cost, availability, preparation
time, appropriateness for job, ease of working, job specifications,
mechanical properties, machine capability.
Mechanical properties, appropriateness for job, and at least one
other factor are required.

Please note
Providers must be granted consent to assess against standards (accredited) by NZQA,
before they can report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses
of study leading to that assessment.
Industry Training Organisations must be granted consent to assess against standards by
NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.
Providers and Industry Training Organisations, which have been granted consent and
which are assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that
applies to those standards.
Requirements for consent to assess and an outline of the moderation system that applies
to this standard are outlined in the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR). The
CMR also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations wishing
to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for tutors
and assessors, and special resource requirements.
