Perform instrument departure - non published procedure

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



1Determine applicable standards for an instrument departure (non SID/SRD)

1.1 Standard take-off minima is determined in accordance with the aerodrome using Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP)

1.2 Departure is planned to ensure the aircraft can maintain obstacle and terrain clearance after take-off and during the climb to LSALT

1.3 Ceiling minima is increased and/or track is planned to ensure terrain clearance is maintained when required

2Take off and climb to cruising altitude/level under the IFR (non SID/SRD)

2.1 Appropriate checklist items are completed and confirmed to ensure the aircraft systems applicable to the instrument take-off are operating correctly

2.2 Radios, navigation aids and flight instruments are set to the desired setting prior to initiating the take-off

2.3 Track, altitude requirements and emergency procedures are reviewed and briefed for an instrument departure

2.4 Climb to cruising altitude/level after take-off is achieved

2.5 Obstacle and terrain clearance is maintained below LSALT while intercept track is maintained within 5 nm of the departure aerodrome

2.6 Transitions from visual meteorological conditions to actual or simulated instrument meteorological conditions are performed without loss of control of the aircraft

2.7 Radio transmissions are performed in accordance with AIP requirements

2.8 Separation from other traffic is maintained
