Determine material suitability for competition vehicle components

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. Establish component performance specifications

1.1 Component specifications are determined from performance specifications

1.2 Component operating environment is established

1.3 Component operating function is confirmed

1.4 Component performance specifications are prepared

2. Establish material performance specifications

2.1 Material operating function is confirmed

2.2 Criteria to be used in selection of material and in evaluation of outcomes are identified and documented

2.3 Specifications for material are accessed and interpreted

2.4 Legal and safety impacts of material chosen are considered and responded to according to regulatory and team obligations and practices

2.5 Material performance specifications are prepared and documented to industry and team standards

3. Test material suitability against material performance specifications

3.1 Material capable of undertaking the required operating function is identified

3.2 Proposed material is selected following identification, consideration and evaluation of full range of available and relevant options

3.3 Material is selected or constructed to component specifications, according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures and safety requirements

3.4 Selected option, including material choices and processes, is developed in detail and progressively validated against established criteria

3.5 Test material is tested against material performance specifications

3.6 Causes of material failure are identified as required

3.7 Testing procedures and results are documented, including recommendations for material use

4. Test component suitability against component performance specifications

4.1 Component test procedures are determined

4.2 Component is tested against component performance specifications according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements

4.3 Testing procedures and results are documented, including recommendations for component use
