Monitor the effective operations of electrical stimulation

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 AMPA3004, 'Monitor the effective operations of electrical stimulation'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Monitor the effective operations of electrical stimulation' 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

Element

Performance criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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

1. Monitor electrical stimulation unit

1.1 Monitor the electrical stimulation unit using the correct procedure to check electrical stimulation equipment operation

1.2 Use dummy load across each of the electrical inputs to check operation in accordance with work instructions and manufacturers’ specifications

1.3 Observe for and describe the normal reaction of carcases to electrical stimulation

1.4 Observe for and respond to any abnormal reaction of carcases to electrical stimulation

1.5 Follow up on requests for maintenance and check operation is normal

1.6 Follow workplace health and safety requirements for working around electrical stimulation units

2. Ensure routine checks of equipment by technicians are performed

2.1 Arrange or oversee routine checks to ensure a full check of the equipment is made including: electrical parameters, stored programs, electrical safety, electrodes and equipment integration

2.2 Review maintenance and equipment reports detailing the findings and recommendations and implement corrective actions

3. Respond to audits of carcase specification compliance

3.1 Describe the pH/temperature window and its importance to meat quality

3.2 Describe the audit process for electrical stimulation unit performance and the various potential findings

3.3 Respond to adverse audit findings including recommendations to alter stimulation inputs, alter stimulation time and adjust chilling regime
