Perform distance measuring equipment (DME)/global positioning system (GPS) arrival

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 and prepare for approach

1.1 The current Instrument Approach and Landing (IAL) chart for the DME/GPS approach to be flown is selected

1.2 The instrument approach and missed approach procedure is planned

1.3 MDA is determined

1.4 Sector entry to the approach and holding pattern is selected, reviewed and briefed as appropriate

1.5 Minimum altitude, LSALT or Minimum Safe Altitude (MSA) prior to approach entry is reviewed and briefed in relation to tracks, distances and descent limitations

1.6 The applicable approach minima for the aircraft performance category and runway to be used is selected

1.7 The holding or diversion action if visual reference is not established is reviewed and briefed

1.8 Fuel availability and latest divert time is selected if required

1.9 Altimeter is set to appropriate QNH

2Use appropriate tracking aid and distance information and monitor aid signal integrity

2.1 DME is tuned and identified

2.2 The reference Way-point (WPT) for GPS to be used for tracking inbound is selected

2.3 The distance indication is checked

2.4 Approach aid is monitored throughout the approach to ensure signal integrity

2.5 DME or GPS is used to provide distance indications for descent via the distance/altitude steps of the approach

2.6 Availability of receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) is ensured before descending below LSALT or MSA

3Conduct approach procedure

3.1 Initial approach is conducted not below the specified limiting altitude for the distance/altitude descent steps

3.2 Arrival procedure is conducted while descending on the specified track or sector in accordance with AIP

3.3 Landing runway is identified

3.4 Runway or circling approach for a landing is conducted after visual reference is established

4Conduct missed approach procedure

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

4.2 Aircraft is manoeuvred to Missed Approach Point (MAPt)

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

4.4 Obstacle clearance in IMC/simulated IMC is maintained
