Manage human factors in aircraft flight

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



1Manage personal performance

1.1 Pre- and post-flight personal condition is managed to ensure safe outcome of flight

1.2 Own performance in flight is monitored against workplace standards, procedures and requirements

1.3 Degradation of personal condition and/or limitations are recognised and appropriate strategies are implemented to ensure the safe outcome of a flight

2Recognise threats and errors, and manage preventative and corrective action

2.1 Relevant environmental or operational threats that are likely to affect the safety of the flight are identified

2.2 Countermeasures to manage threats are developed and implemented

2.3 Flight progress is monitored and assessed to ensure a safe outcome, or actions are modified when a safe outcome is not assured

2.4 Checklists and standard operating procedures are applied to prevent aircraft handling, procedural or communication errors; and committed errors are identified before safety is affected or aircraft enters an undesired aircraft state

2.5 Aircraft systems, flight environment and crewmembers are monitored, and information is collected and analysed to identify potential or actual errors

2.6 Countermeasures are implemented to prevent errors, or action is taken in the time available to correct errors before the aircraft enters an undesired aircraft state
