Construct and test basic electronic circuits

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

1. Prepare to construct basic electronic circuit

1.1 Safety and environmental requirements are sourced and interpreted

1.2 Task instruction is interpreted and electronic circuit to be worked on is identified

1.3 Manufacturer specifications and workplace procedures for electronic circuitry are sourced and interpreted

1.4 Potential hazards and risks associated with task are identified and reported to workplace supervisor

2. Draw circuit diagrams and identify equipment and materials to construct electronic circuit

2.1 Electronic circuit diagrams that accurately reflect the circuit specifications are drawn according to manufacturer specifications

2.2 Electronic components are depicted correctly in circuit diagram using standard symbols

2.3 Component and material requirements are identified from electronic circuit diagram and recorded

3. Construct electronic circuit

3.1 Tools, equipment and electronic components are sourced and selected according to manufacturer specifications and safety requirements

3.2 Component manufacturer installation and connection information is read, interpreted and applied

3.3 Circuit is constructed using electronic components according to manufacturer specifications and safety requirements

4. Test electronic circuit

4.1 Circuit fault testing equipment is identified and sourced according to workplace procedures, manufacturer specifications and safety requirements

4.2 Electronic circuit is tested according to workplace procedures, manufacturer specifications and safety requirements

4.3 Faults detected are corrected and circuit is re-tested to confirm their operation

4.4 Circuit testing procedures and outcomes are recorded

5. Complete work processes

5.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work meets task instruction and workplace standards, and that electronic circuit is constructed ready for use or storage

5.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected and stored according to environmental requirements and workplace procedures

5.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored according to workplace procedures, or tagged and reported where necessary

5.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures
