Apply sustainable building design principles to water management systems

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



1. Apply legislative and planning requirements for effective water management systems to the building process.

1.1. Current relevant state, territory and council requirements for effective management of water systems are identified as part of the building and construction design process.

1.2. Client needs and expectations for the design and use of water management systems are identified and negotiated.

1.3. Expert plumbing and other advice is gathered as part of the planning process.

1.4. Relevant Australian standards are consulted to identify the implications for the conduct of the building project.

1.5. Environmental and resource efficiency issues are identified and addressed.

2. Identify and apply opportunities for improved water management.

2.1. Impact of client and resident behaviour on effective water management and use is identified.

2.2. Opportunities to select efficient water management fixtures and appliances as part of the building design are identified, evaluated and applied.

2.3. Relative installation and ongoing usage costs of efficient water management fixtures and appliances are quantified and communicated to the client.

2.4. Efficient water management fixtures and appliances are used as negotiated within the building project.

3. Apply sound water management principles to the site and its landscaping.

3.1. Soil and sediments are contained to the site as part of the site preparation and management.

3.2. Sound waste management practices are used on site.

3.3. Effective sediment control barriers are in place and used.

3.4. Topsoil and local rocks are stockpiled and retained for later use in landscaping.

3.5. Appropriate input is made to the landscape design process to optimise water use, reuse and recycling.

4. Promote best practice in water management.

4.1. Selection, location and installation of tanks to optimise the reuse of roof water are evaluated and implemented.

4.2. Costs, planning implications and construction techniques for the reuse of grey water are identified and implemented as negotiated with the client.

4.3. Costs and performance characteristics of various materials used in the installation of water management systems are identified and negotiated with the client.
