Supervise artificial breeding and embryo transfer programs

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

Reference books for 'Supervise artificial breeding and embryo transfer programs' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria


Performance criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Determine breeding method

1.1 Review options for artificial breeding to determine most suitable and affordable method according to breeding objectives

1.2 Select and match artificial breeding option to resources and breeding objectives

1.3 Identify, source and arrange resource implications of breeding programs

1.4 Prepare program schedules according to available resources

1.5 Ensure suitable personal protective equipment for staff and self are available in line with enterprise work health and safety policies

2. Implement breeding method

2.1 Check the disease status of donor and recipient animals in line with enterprise biosecurity policies

2.2 Obtain genetic material from appropriate and reliable source

2.3 Receive, check and store genetic material appropriately

2.4 Handle animals appropriately in line with animal welfare policies

2.5 Ensure females are inseminated at the optimal stage of the oestrus cycle where artificial insemination is the selected option

2.6 Check to ensure intended recipients are prepared and correctly scheduled where embryo transfer (ET) is the selected option

2.7 Provide hormone injections to intended recipients at appropriate stages of transfer programs where ET is the selected option

2.8 Conduct embryo transfers in compliance with relevant codes of practice and industry standards where ET is the selected option

3. Monitor and maintain program

3.1 Monitor the need for return to service of intended recipient

3.2 Monitor health of livestock in the breeding program

3.3 Review adjustments in genetic material transfer practices to enhance success of future programs

3.4 Document and maintain data on genetic material transfer programs
