Carry out diagnosis of complex system faults

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



1. Prepare for diagnostic procedure

1.1. Nature and scope of the work requirements are identified and confirmed.

1.2. OH&S requirements, including individual State/Territory regulatory requirements and personal protection needs are observed throughout the work.

1.3. Technical and/or calibration requirements for testing and diagnosis are sourced and support equipment is identified and prepared.

2. Analyse reported faults

2.1. Information is gathered from all sources to provide a full overview of all faults and conditions under which they occur.

2.2. Function and operation of the system when operating correctly are identified.

2.3. Systematic fault-finding processes are used across relevant systems to determine the extent of the fault.

2.4. Additional technical sources are consulted to assist with analysis, if necessary.

2.5. Actual faults are distinguished from perceived faults.

3. Identify causes of faults

3.1. Diagnostic equipment and tests are selected to facilitate precise identification of faults and causes.

3.2. Tests are applied systematically and efficiently to gather precise data on system operation.

3.3. Appropriate use is made of technical information to compare gathered data with specifications.

3.4. Test results and gathered data are compared to system specifications and normal functions, and discrepancies are identified.

3.5. Source/cause of fault is isolated and confirmed.

4. Establish repair requirements

4.1. Viability of repair or replacement is assessed.

4.2. Appropriate repair procedures are identified and prescribed to meet customer service requirements.

4.3. Repair requirements are clearly and legibly documented and/or communicated to appropriate persons.

4.4. Repairs involving equipment/skills not held in the workshop are sourced from specialist workshops.

4.5. Customer is informed of the diagnosis and repair requirements.
