Perform queen bee artificial insemination

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

Element

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 the most suitable and affordable method in line with breeding objectives

1.2 Select an artificial breeding option in line with the organisation’s breeding program and queen and drone management program and match to resources

1.3 Identify, source and arrange resource requirements

1.4 Prepare program schedules based on available resources

1.5 Confirm that suitable personal protective equipment for self and breeding support staff is available and in good condition

2. Implement breeding method

2.1 Obtain genetic material from reliable and legitimate sources

2.2 Receive, check and store genetic material to ensure maximum viability and program outcomes

2.3 Manage rearing times so that queen bees and drones are of appropriate age and condition when artificial insemination is scheduled to occur

2.4 Collect semen from drones, prepare queens and inseminate using hygienic techniques to minimise risk of contamination

2.5 After insemination, place queen in a colony of suitable strength and monitor.

3. Monitor and maintain program

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

3.2 Document data on genetic material transfer programs

3.3 Calculate and use success rates from breeding objectives to determine success of artificial insemination program

3.4 Identify and record modifications to queen and drone management program to assist continuous improvement processes
