Apply aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic principles and effects to competition vehicles

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 AURMTA008, 'Apply aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic principles and effects to competition vehicles'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Apply aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic principles and effects to competition vehicles' 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

Elements

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. Prepare to determine optimum aerodynamic settings

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Setting requirements are determined from motor sport event information

1.3 Regulations, specifications and tolerances are examined for possible competitive advantages

1.4 Specifications are checked for required known factors and any required clarification of specifications is sought

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

2. Determine optimum tyre settings

2.1 Tyre setting requirements are calculated and determined according to known factors

2.2 Effects of selected tyre settings on overall vehicle performance are evaluated

2.3 Anticipated performance improvement is quantified and optimum settings are documented

3. Determine optimum steering and suspension settings

3.1 Steering and suspension setting requirements are calculated and determined according to known factors

3.2 Effects of selected steering and suspension settings on overall vehicle performance are evaluated

3.3 Anticipated performance improvement is quantified and optimum settings are documented

4. Determine optimum aerodynamic device settings

4.1 Aerodynamic device setting requirements are calculated and determined according to known factors

4.2 Effects of selected aerodynamic device settings on overall vehicle performance are evaluated

4.3 Anticipated performance improvement is quantified and optimum settings are documented

5. Supervise configuration of aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic settings

5.1 Tooling and equipment are selected and checked for serviceability

5.2 Aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic optimum settings are configured according to team procedures and safety requirements

5.3 Post-configuration checks are made to ensure accurate and complete changes according to team procedures and safety requirements

5.4 Problems with work area or operation of equipment are evaluated and decisions implemented as required

5.5 Proposals for modifications or adaptation of equipment or components are evaluated and implemented as required

5.6 Work area cleanliness and layout for job requirements are monitored

6. Test aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic settings

6.1 Test procedures are determined and settings are tested against anticipated performance improvement according to team procedures and safety requirements

6.2 Testing procedure and results are documented

6.3 Recommendations for setting usage are devised and implemented

7. Complete work processes

7.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work is to workplace expectations and vehicle is presented ready for use

7.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable material are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected

7.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored according to workplace procedures

7.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures
