Test suspension dampers using a dynamometer

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. Prepare for dynamometer operation

1.1 Job requirements are determined from team instructions, category regulations and manufacturer procedures

1.2 Dynamometer is checked for calibration and serviceability, and is prepared for operation according to manufacturer specifications and team procedures

1.3 Hazards associated with the work are identified and risks are managed according to safety requirements

1.4 Tools and equipment for securing dampers are selected and checked for serviceability

2. Conduct dynamometer testing

2.1 Appropriate load and run sequence and test parameters are determined

2.2 Dampers are connected and secured to dynamometer according to manufacturer specifications and team procedures

2.3 Selected dynamometer testing sequence is carried out according to manufacturer and team procedures and safety requirements, and results are documented

2.4 Dynamometer test data is analysed and conclusions are drawn about damper condition and performance according to manufacturer specifications and team procedures

2.5 Findings are reported to appropriate personnel, including recommendations based on dynamometer data for damper configuration or modifications to improve performance, according to team procedures

2.6 Damper modifications are carried out and tested on dynamometer according to manufacturer specifications, team procedures and safety requirements as required

2.7 Data is presented to team members according to team procedures

3. Complete work processes

3.1 Dynamometer shutdown procedure is carried out according to manufacturer specifications, team procedures and safety requirements

3.2 Dampers are disconnected from dynamometer according to manufacturer specifications and team procedures

3.3 Dynamometer, tools and associated equipment are checked, maintained and stored according to workplace procedures

3.4 Dynamometer test results are documented and stored according to team procedures to create or add to damper history
