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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver AHCBAC504A, 'Plan and manage a stored grain program'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Plan and manage a stored grain program' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
1. Plan grain storage program
1.1. Relevant organisational documentation and information is obtained and analysed for input to the storage program.
1.2. The available storage facilities are identified, recorded and assessed for suitability and capacity.
1.3. The projected grain production and delivery quantities, types and timeframes are calculated and analysed against storage capacity.
1.4. Temporary storage if required, is arranged.
1.5. Timeframes and scheduling for delivery of grain to storage facilities on- and off-site are estimated.
1.6. The program includes plans for annual, seasonal and short-term periods, and is prepared to achieve the goals and objectives of the organisation.
1.7. The program, including scheduling and key responsibilities, is clearly documented.
1.8. The program includes the type, format, frequency and detail of any reporting required by both managers and operators.
2. Plan integrated pest control for the storage area
2.1. Grain is sampled for pest infestation and testing is organised.
2.2. The results of samples and tests for pest infestation are recorded and analysed.
2.3. An integrated pest management program is developed and implemented to control grain insects and other pests in storage.
2.4. Monitoring points, targets and methods are determined to identify possible development of resistance in insects.
2.5. The pest control strategies selected relate to the requirements of the end use, and to the customers expectations.
2.6. Record keeping requirements are determined and procedures are put in place to ensure compliance with the range of applicable regulations.
2.7. The program, including scheduling and key responsibilities, is clearly documented.
2.8. The program includes the type, format, frequency and detail of any reporting required by both managers and operators.
3. Implement OHS program for grain storage area
3.1. OHS hazards are identified within and surrounding the grain storage area(s).
3.2. Procedures to minimise OHS risks are developed and documented for use by all people operating around the storage facilities.
3.3. Procedures to minimise OHS risks are communicated clearly to all people operating around the storage facilities, and confirmation of the clear communication is sought.
3.4. The OHS program clearly describes the personal protective equipment and safety gear required to be used around the storage facilities.
3.5. Record keeping requirements are determined and procedures are put in place to ensure compliance with the range of applicable regulations.
3.6. The program includes the type, format, frequency and detail of any reporting required by both managers and operators.
4. Manage the grain storage program
4.1. All aspects of the grain storage program are implemented to achieve the goals and objectives of the organisation.
4.2. Activities are scheduled and organised to allow for efficient transport and storage of the grain.
4.3. Pest control strategies are undertaken according to the requirements of the integrated pest management program.
4.4. Personal protective equipment and safety gear is provided to all people operating around the storage facilities.
4.5. All OHS procedures that were prepared are implemented by operational personnel.
4.6. Checks are made to ensure that the performance indicators, targets and specifications are being met and amendments to the program are made where necessary.
4.7. Operational personnel are communicated with regularly throughout the storage, transport, sampling and chemical application operations to ensure efficient and safe operation and progress.
4.8. The impact and risk of existing and potential problems are assessed.
4.9. Where a potential problem is identified, investigation is made into its likely causes.
4.10. Alternative solutions are analysed and reviewed, and the most appropriate is recommended to the appropriate personnel for a decision.
5. Maintain records of stored grain movement
5.1. Records and documentation are created, maintained and kept as described in the grain storage program, the integrated pest management program, and the OHS requirements.
5.2. Records and documentation are completed clearly and accurately throughout the storage program.
5.3. The record keeping system that is used ensures that required information is available, accessible, reliable, meaningful, and useful.
