Take off aeroplane

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.


Carry out pre-take-off procedures


Critical take-off airspeeds, aircraft configuration, and emergency and abnormal procedures for normal and cross-wind take-offs are correctly identified


Pre-take-off briefing is completed


Approved pre-take off and line up checklists are completed in accordance with flight manual/pilot’s operating handbook (POH) or company operations manual


Correction for existing wind component to the take-off performance is verified and correctly applied


Runway approach path is visually cleared of conflicting traffic and other hazards prior to lining up for take-off


Aeroplane is aligned with runway centre line in take-off direction


Air traffic control (ATC) clearances are obtained as required


Conduct aeroplane take off


Take-off power is applied, aeroplane is maintained aligned with centre of runway with wings maintained level and rotated at manufacturer recommended speed to achieve planned climb performance


Aeroplane is configured for nominated climb profile, and tracking on centreline of runway is maintained during take off


Power controls, settings, and instruments during take-off are monitored to ensure all predetermined parameters are achieved and maintained


Lookout is maintained using a systematic scan technique at a rate determined by traffic density, visibility and terrain


Separation with all circuit traffic is maintained


Radiotelephone listening watch is maintained


Local and published noise abatement requirements and curfews are observed


After take-off checks are performed in accordance with approved checklist


Perform rejected take-off


Requirement to abort/reject take-off is identified


Power is reduced smoothly and promptly


Braking devices are activated


Control is maintained to bring aeroplane to a safe stop


Associated procedures and/or checklists are initiated and completed
