Perform visual circling approach

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 minima applicable for visual circling for specified instrument approach

1.1 Determine the requirement to conduct a circling approach in accordance with AIP

1.2 Ceiling and visibility minima are determined for a circling approach appropriate for the instrument approach procedure and category of aircraft being used, in accordance with applicable instrument approach charts

2Conduct visual circling procedure following instrument approach, using appropriate visual cues

2.1 Circling procedures are planned and briefed in relation to the position of the runway relative to the aircraft as it will appear to the pilot when approaching minima

2.2 Circling approach is conducted in accordance with AIP

2.3 Aircraft is controlled and maintained within altitude limitations by reference to instruments

2.4 Aircraft position is controlled and maintained using visual cues

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

3Conduct missed approach from visual circling

3.1 Conditions requiring a missed approach are recognised and missed approach is initiated

3.2 Aircraft is manoeuvred to Missed Approach Point (MAPt) and a missed approach procedure is conducted in accordance with the applicable instrument approach chart

3.3 Obstacle clearance in IMC/simulated IMC is maintained
