Design and build bicycle frames

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


Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold and italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Identify frame requirements and prepare to design and build bicycle frame

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Customer requirements are discussed and confirmed

1.3 Physical attributes of rider and his or her riding style are assessed using sizing cycle, observation and measurements

1.4 Bicycle frame design principles and design are researched and component specifications checked

1.5 Work plan and build instructions are prepared to use materials and time efficiently and minimise waste

2. Design bicycle frame

2.1 Frame is designed to meet customer measurements and requirements, using a bicycle computer-aided design (CAD) program or other means

2.2 Frame tubing requirements are specified in terms of diameter and wall thickness to meet durability and user requirements

2.3 Required parts and materials and their availability are determined

2.4 Frame costs are documented and customer approval is obtained

2.5 Order is placed with suppliers for frame materials, parts and components

3. Prepare for frame building

3.1 Frame building methods and sequence, and access to required tools and equipment, are planned

3.2 Parts are laid out and checked for damaged or missing components

3.3 Fabrication tooling and jig set-up are selected and checked for serviceability

3.4 Welding, brazing or bonding equipment and materials are set up

4. Build bicycle frame

4.1 Tools and equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), are selected and checked for serviceability

4.2 Frame building activities are carried out according to design drawing, work plan, and safety and environmental requirements

4.3 Hazards associated with the work are identified and risks are managed

4.4 Design drawing angles, measurements and frame alignment are checked throughout the building process and adjustments are made as required

5. Paint and finish frame

5.1 Frame is prepared for painting and finishing

5.2 Paint or finish is prepared and applied according to job and customer requirements and workplace instructions

5.3 Safety and environmental requirements, including the use of PPE and adequate ventilation during frame painting, are followed

5.4 Visible paint defects are removed or repainted according to workplace procedures and quality requirements

6. Complete work processes

6.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work meets workplace expectations and bicycle is presented ready for use

6.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected and stored

6.3 Tools and equipment are checked, reported if faulty, and stored according to workplace procedures

6.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures
