Apply structural principles to residential low rise constructions

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. Apply structural principles when planning the erection or demolition of a structure.

1.1. Main structural principles that apply to the erection or demolition of a residential low rise structure are identified.

1.2. Structural performance of a structure is described in terms of the effect of section properties on various materials.

1.3. Structural performance characteristics of slabs, floors, beams, columns and retaining walls are explained and applied to the planning of the construction work.

1.4. Demolition of existing structures is coordinated in accordance with legislative and planning requirements, environmental standards, and safe work practices.

2. Analyse and plan for the structural integrity of Class1 and Class 10 buildings.

2.1. Relevant industry professionals are consulted as required to provide advice regarding the design process and the structural integrity of the proposed Class 1 or Class 10 building.

2.2. Project documentation is collected and analysed to assist in the analysis of plans and specifications.

2.3. Project documentation is analysed for compliance with BCA requirements for bushfire, high wind, earthquake and alpine environments.

2.4. New and emerging building technologies are assessed for application to the construction process and their compliance with BCA requirements and Australian standards.

2.5. Pre-commencement site inspection is conducted to confirm analysis.

3. Plan, coordinate and manage the laying of footings.

3.1. Footings are set out in accordance with building's plan.

3.2. Structural integrity of the footings specified in building's plan is assessed for compliance with relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.

3.3. Footings specified in building's plan are laid and checked for compliance with project documentation.

3.4. Damp coursing, provision of termite barriers, and other relevant techniques are planned, implemented and checked in accordance with codes, standards and industry practice.

4. Plan, coordinate and manage the laying of floor system.

4.1. Concrete slab or bearers and joists specified in building's plan are assessed for structural integrity and compliance with relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.

4.2. Laying of floor system specified in building's plan is supervised and checked for compliance with project documentation.

5. Plan, coordinate and manage the building of structural and non-structural wall systems.

5.1. Technical construction principles and performance of materials used in the construction are identified and analysed in the planning of the building and construction project.

5.2. Application of bracing requirements, tie-downs, tolerances, allowances, and fixing and installation of components are planned, implemented and checked for compliance with relevant Australian standards, codes and manufacturer specifications.

5.3. Structural timber members are selected for low rise buildings to conform to AS1684 requirements.

5.4. Processes are put in place and managed to ensure quality of the frame, whether factory pre-cut and pre-nailed, factory pre-cut and assembled on site, or cut and assembled on site.

5.5. Vapour permeable sarking or a waterproof membrane, relevant to construction method, is attached and checked.

6. Plan, coordinate and manage the building of roof system.

6.1. Structural integrity of roof system components specified in building's plan is assessed for compliance with relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.

6.2. Erection of roof trusses is planned, implemented and checked in accordance with requirements of building plan, type of roof being constructed, relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.

6.3. Processes are put in place and managed to ensure quality of the manufactured roof trusses or hand-cut roof system.
