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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver CPCCBC4011B, 'Apply structural principles to commercial low rise constructions'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Apply structural principles to commercial low rise constructions' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
1. Apply structural principles to the planning of the erection or demolition of a structure.
1.1. Main structural principles that apply to erection or demolition of a low rise commercial structure are identified.
1.2. Structural performance of a structure is described in terms of the effect of section properties on various materials and their related construction methods.
1.3. Structural performance characteristics of slabs, beams, columns and retaining walls are explained and applied to planning of the construction work.
1.4. Demolition of existing structures is coordinated in accordance with safe work practices and legislative, environmental and planning requirements.
2. Analyse and plan for the structural integrity of Class 2 to 9 buildings.
2.1. Relevant industry professionals are consulted as required to provide advice regarding the design process and structural integrity of proposed commercial low rise 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 laying of footing systems.
3.1. Footing systems are set out in accordance with building's plans.
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 and 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 laying of floor system.
4.1. Floor system components specified in building's plan are assessed for structural integrity and compliance with relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.
4.2. Laying of structural 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 wall systems and wall cladding systems.
5.1. Technical construction principles and performance characteristics of structural wall systems and wall cladding systems are identified and analysed in the planning of the building and construction project.
5.2. Processes for erecting wall systems and wall cladding systems are identified, implemented and checked for compliance with manufacturer specifications and relevant Australian standards and codes.
5.3. Building plans and relevant standards and codes are identified and implemented to ensure appropriate allowances have been made for relevant services to be installed.
5.4. Windows and external doors are installed in compliance with relevant codes, manufacturer specifications and accepted industry construction principles.
6. Plan, coordinate and manage the building of structural roof systems and roof cladding systems.
6.1. Structural integrity of the structural roof system and roof cladding system components specified in building's plan is assessed for compliance with relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.
6.2. Construction of roof system and roof cladding system, including details of service penetrations, skylights and roof ventilators, is planned, implemented and checked in accordance with building plan's requirements, 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 finished roof system.
