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 AHCSDP402, 'Supervise seed crop establishment'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Supervise seed crop establishment' 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
Elements describe the essential outcomes.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.
1. Prepare planting plan
1.1 Determine from the organisationâ€™s production plan the seed crop and method of planting to be used
1.2 Assess and calculate the resources required for the planting operations from the area to be sown, the method of planting to be used, and the available timelines
1.3 Set the target dates for planting, including the sequencing for planting across paddocks or crop areas, in line with the overall production/management planning for the organisation
1.4 Select and organise the chemical applications required pre- and post-planting to occur at an appropriate time
1.5 Prepare the plan to ensure that any potential detrimental environmental impacts are minimised or eliminated, including the proper disposal of containers, drums and other waste
1.6 Identify and assess Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) hazards
1.7 Implement and oversee staff carrying out safe work practices for planting
1.8 Seek, identify and obtain any approvals required for the planting operations
1.9 Determine measurable indicators, specifications and targets, based on the production/management plan and the method, resources, and seed to be used
2. Determine scheduling and key responsibilities
2.1 Determine scheduling for planting, taking into consideration the range of geographic and resourcing factors, as well as operations that will be occurring at the same time as the planting
2.2 Determine the key responsibilities for specific preparatory processes that are required before planting
2.3 Determine key responsibilities for specific implementation processes
2.4 Determine and put in place recordkeeping requirements and procedures to ensure compliance with the range of applicable regulations

3. Monitor and adjust the planting plan
3.1 Adhere to monitoring points outlined in the implementation plan
3.2 Carry out checks to ensure that OHS procedures are being observed and followed
3.3 Carry out checks to ensure that the site environmental requirements are being observed and followed
3.4 Communicate regularly with operational staff and contractors to ensure smooth operation and progress
3.5 Carry out checks to ensure that the documentation required by the organisation, or other regulating bodies, is completed clearly and accurately during the progress of the planting process
