Perform non-directional beacon (NDB) instrument 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



1Select approach and determine applicable minima

1.1 Current Instrument Approach and Landing (IAL) chart for the NDB approach to be flown is selected

1.2 IAL is reviewed and briefed in relation to directing entry to the approach; maintaining LSALT or MSA prior to entry approach; maintaining tracks, distances, timing and descent limitations for the approach

1.3 Fuel availability and latest divert time procedures are enacted if required

2Monitor aid signal integrity

2.1 NDB to be used for the selected approach is tuned and identified

2.2 Morse code identification and NDB indications are monitored throughout the approach to ensure signal integrity

3Conduct initial approach

3.1 Altimeter is set to appropriate QNH

3.2 Inbound track at or above route MSA or LSALT is maintained in accordance with AIP, using the NDB

4Conduct holding pattern

4.1 Holding pattern at or above LSALT or MSA is entered in accordance with the specified sector entry

4.2 Holding pattern is performed in accordance with AIP, using the NDB

5Conduct instrument approach procedure

5.1 Instrument approach is conducted in accordance with tolerances specified in AIP, using the NDB

5.2 Landing runway is identified

5.3 After establishing visual reference, a visual circling or runway approach is conducted for a landing on the selected runway, in accordance with AIP

6Conduct missed approach procedure

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

6.2 Aircraft is manoeuvred to Missed Approach Point (MAPt)

6.3 Missed approach procedure is conducted in accordance with the IAL chart

6.4 Obstacle clearance in IMC/simulated IMC is maintained
