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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver AVIY4059, 'Pilot a helicopter during rappelling operations'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Pilot a helicopter during rappelling operations' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
Elements describe the essential outcomes.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.
Plan rappelling operations
Tasking requirements are identified, including operational variations
Crew and equipment required to ensure safe achievement of task are determined
Helicopter performance data is interpreted and calculated to ensure suitability of aircraft for rappelling operations
Transit, rappelling operation communications and recovery is planned in accordance with workplace procedures
Operations at rappelling site including obstructions, terrain and any factors that may adversely affect deployment, are planned
Abnormal and emergency rappelling situation contingency procedures are planned
Conduct pre-flight briefings
Rappelling operational requirements are briefed and confirmed
Location, terrain features (sea state as applicable) and forecast weather conditions are obtained and confirmed
Timings, route/s, airspeeds and altitudes are confirmed
Relevant personnel are briefed about pilot, crew and rappelling personnel responsibilities and communication procedures
Abnormal and emergency rappelling situation contingency procedures are briefed
Adequacy of hover power margin and control limits to perform rappelling operations is checked and maintained
Site inspection, approach and hover heading are determined in accordance with operational requirements
Descent and approach are controlled to terminate over rappelling site
Control is applied to helicopter to maintain position over rappelling site
Obstacle clearances to obstructions, constructions and terrain are maintained during deployment and/or retrieval operation
Effective communications with crew and relevant personnel are maintained during operation
Safety and security of passengers and/or cargo is managed
Rappelling ropes are recovered and/or detached, and site is vacated in accordance with workplace procedures
Manage abnormal and emergency situations
Helicopter control is maintained
Abnormal and/or emergency situations are identified and managed
Rappelling equipment/personnel are safely jettisoned (as required) when flight safety or hover stability is compromised
Conduct post-flight briefings
Operating procedures and flight outcomes are reviewed and analysed
Effectiveness, efficiency and performance of equipment is analysed and reported
Inspection, servicing and stowage of rappelling equipment is organised/confirmed
