Manage erosion and sediment control

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 'Manage erosion and sediment control' 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. Conduct a property or catchment audit and identify areas with erosion and sediment problems

1.1 Identify soils susceptible to erosion and sediment loss and relationship to land classes for erosion potential

1.2 Conduct a property or site audit and document details using appropriate methodology

1.3 Identify and classify types of erosion and sediment loss

1.4 Identify the environmental and man made factors that influence rates and effects of erosion and sediment

1.5 Estimate the economic and environmental losses caused by erosion and sediment losses

1.6 Identify appropriate external sources of support to assist in the planning processes

1.7 Identify relevant regulatory planning authorities or environmental legislation for current project and future planning developments

2. Develop erosion and sediment control plan

2.1 Investigate erosion and sediment control measures consistent with industry principles

2.2 Develop erosion and sediment control strategy/s for project area and record in co-operation with land owner, relevant government and planning authorities and any other key stakeholders

2.3 Identify potential problems that may require future rectification and modification to original strategies

2.4 Develop erosion and sediment control plan to meet design specifications including environmental concerns, physical impacts, land use, production systems and key personnel

2.5 Develop monitoring processes for evaluating and reporting performance against erosion and sediment control plan for achieving short and long-term outcomes

2.6 Determine roles and responsibilities to all key personnel and stakeholders

3. Implement and manage the erosion and sediment control plan

3.1 Implement tasks in accordance with erosion and sediment control plan and structure specification

3.2 Manage the communication process including strategies for conflict resolution and problem solving

3.3 Monitor progress to ensure time, performance, cost and quality of work is achieved

3.4 Investigate and negotiate proposed variations in consultation with all key stakeholders

4. Evaluate the erosion and sediment control plan

4.1 Conduct inspection to review work completion and collate monitoring data

4.2 Identify alterations or modifications to the development plan and report to industry sector personnel, developer or consenting authority

4.3 Review outcomes of completed erosion and sediment control plan against agreed short and long term objectives and report to all key stakeholders
