Develop a crop regulation program

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


Performance criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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

1.2 Research the characteristics and growing requirements of plant species and cultivars that may affect the crop regulation program

1.3 Assess the benefits and limitations of available crop regulation methods for specified crops

1.4 Evaluate implementation risk of available methods and record and cost risk controls

1.5 Determined the most cost-effective approach to crop regulation and submit to management for approval

2. Identify the requirements of a crop regulation program

2.1 Develop the crop regulation program to achieve the appropriate yield and quality

2.2 Identify and confirm availability of resources, tools, equipment and machinery for the program

2.3 Outline staged implementation and development according to the range of conditions over the growing cycle

2.4 Determine timelines for crop regulation activities, taking into account the needs of the crop and site conditions

3. Prepare and document the crop regulation program and specifications

3.1 Prepare a plan, specifications and quotation based on the requirements of the program

3.2 Develop and document on-site procedures and schedules for the program

4. Monitor the crop regulation program

4.1 Monitor implementation of the program to ensure requirements of the production plan are achieved
