Manage safe flight operations

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.


Maintain effective lookout


Systematic visual scan techniques are applied at a rate determined by traffic density, visibility and terrain to maintain traffic separation


Radio listening watch is maintained and transmissions are interpreted to determine traffic location and intention


Airspace-cleared procedures are performed before commencing any manoeuvre


Maintain situational awareness


All aircraft systems are monitored using a systematic scan technique


Information is collected to facilitate ongoing system management


Flight environment is monitored for deviations from planned operations


Flight environment information is collected to update planned operations


Assess situations and make decisions


Problems affecting flight performance are identified and analysed


Potential solutions to flight performance problems are identified


Potential solutions and risks are assessed


Course of action is determined and communicated to flight crew, passengers and/or other personnel, as required


Tasks are allocated and actioned to implement optimal course of action outcomes


Tasks are monitored for progress against determined course of action


Plan is re-evaluated as required to achieve optimal outcomes


Set priorities and manage tasks


Task workload and priorities are organised to ensure optimum outcome of the flight


Events and tasks are planned to occur sequentially


Events and tasks are anticipated to ensure sufficient opportunity for completion


Technology is used to reduce workload and improve cognitive and manipulative activities


Maintain effective communication and interpersonal relationships


Effective and efficient communication and interpersonal relationships are established and maintained with all stakeholders to ensure optimum flight outcome


Objectives are defined and explained to stakeholders


Appropriate levels of assertiveness are applied that ensure the optimum completion of a flight
