Establish systems that support innovation

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



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1 Research context for new system development

1.1 Explore and analyse the impact of systems in the overall context of innovation

1.2 Explore and gain clarity around system objectives, particularly in relation to innovation

1.3 Analyse current organisational systems to identify gaps or barriers to innovation

1.4 Research and analyse current and emerging information about systems in other organisations and contexts

1.5 Evaluate the resources and other commitment required to foster innovation

1.6 Identify key stakeholders who can play a role in conceptualising or supporting new system ideas

2 Generate system concepts and options

2.1 Create system concepts that will foster innovation using individual and group techniques

2.2 Evaluate and discuss a range of ideas with relevant stakeholders

2.3 Clearly articulate the ways in which innovation is better supported by system ideas and options

2.4 Clearly articulate how the system itself is innovative

2.5 Expose ideas and options to ongoing testing, exploration and challenge

2.6 Select and refine system ideas that meet the workplace requirements and which are both feasible and innovative

3 Develop a plan for the system

3.1 Determine the need for specialised assistance and integrate into system planning

3.2 Analyse the potential impact of the new system on people, resources and other organisational practices

3.3 Consult with all stakeholders who will be involved with, or affected by, the new system

3.4 Develop an operational plan for the system, with budget, timelines and responsibilities

3.5 Develop a communication strategy to support the introduction of the new system

3.6 Evaluate the coaching and training needs of those who will use the system and plan a learning and development strategy

4 Trial the system

4.1 Present and consult on system proposals with relevant stakeholders

4.2 Analyse and integrate feedback into the system development process

4.3 Determine appropriate context and parameters for the trial process

4.4 Initiate the trial, taking account of all required consultative, coaching and technical issues

4.5 Monitor and review the trial in relation to its goals for fostering innovation

4.6 Open the improvement process to ongoing collaborative input and challenge

4.7 Adjust system to reflect evaluation feedback
