Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for low rise building projects

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

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

1. Access and interpret relevant code and standard requirements.

1.3. Requirements of relevant Australian standards referenced in the BCA are accessed and interpreted accordingly.

2. Classify buildings.

2.1. Nature of a building is determined according to its use and arrangement.

3.1. Range of criteria that will ensure that construction methods comply with BCA performance requirements is determined.

3.2. Alternative solutions to a design or construction problem that will comply with BCA requirements are discussed and proposed in accordance with company policies and procedures.

3.3. Performance-based solutions are identified and documented in accordance with BCA requirements.

3.4. Assessment methods referenced in the BCA to determine whether a building solution complies with performance requirements or DTS provision of the BCA are analysed and applied.

3.5. Relevant documentation is identified and completed in accordance with BCA requirements.

4. Apply fire protection requirements.

4.1. Passive and active fire control elements for low rise building required by the BCA and other legislation are identified and applied.

4.2. Level of fire resistance required for the construction of various low rise buildings is determined.

4.3. Check of existing buildings for compliance with passive and active fire protection requirements is carried out in accordance with BCA requirements.
