Determine equine oral function efficiency

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



1 Identify the structures and understand the function of the equine oral cavity

1.1 Structures within the oral cavity are defined by name and location

1.2 Functions of oral cavity structures are determined

1.3 Structures and body systems that affect growth and health of oral functions are identified and defined

1.4 Process of prehension mastication of food are described and related to normal oral function

2 Relate the prehensile and masticatory function to teeth types

2.1 Equine teeth are classified by name and location using equine dental formulae and established terminology

2.2 Structures of equine teeth and periodontium are identified by name and location

2.3 Stages of development and eruption of equine teeth are identified and defined

2.4 Normal development and eruption is identified

2.5 Abnormalities of development and eruption are identified

2.6 The function of individual equine teeth is defined

3 Age the horse by interpreting tooth eruption, dental wear patterns and tooth angles

3.1 Stages of equine dental eruption and age indicators are identified and defined

3.2 Incisor angles in relation to age are determined

3.3 Occlusal wear and shape of teeth throughout the horse's life are identified and defined

3.4 The age of the horse is estimated based on examination findings (presence or absence of deciduous and permanent teeth, wear patterns, tooth shape and tooth angles)

3.5 Dental status is documented including age estimation using industry notation methods
