Monitor costing systems on medium rise building and construction 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



1. Supervise the identification and classification of project costs.

1.1. Staff members are supervised in their identification of building or construction costs and accurate estimates are made from project schedules.

1.2. Definitive cost estimates are accurately translated into the correct cost centres appropriate to contract requirements.

1.3. Cost centres are correctly identified and incorporated into a planned project cost network.

1.4. Risk assessment is undertaken and estimated cost is compared with estimated risk.

1.5. Planning ensures compliance with relevant codes of practice, standards and legislative requirements.

2. Manage the preparation of a schedule of project expenditure.

2.1. Draft schedules of project expenditure are prepared with critical points identified.

2.2. Expenditure schedules are prepared using organisational processes, and hard copies are produced.

2.3. Critical financial phases of the project are identified and cash flows are matched to expenditure.

3. Prepare curves showing projected cash flow and payments.

3.1. Interim payment claims and rise and fall calculations are prepared for the contractor and subcontractors.

3.2. Projected S curve is prepared to show cash flow and resource control.

3.3. Projected cash flow and payments using time risk and cost risk are prepared and compared.

3.4. Cash flows using early start and late finish for pessimistic or optimistic outcomes are compared.

3.5. Pessimistic overdraft requirements are calculated.

4. Maintain continuous checks on expenditure and evaluate outcomes.

4.1. Cash flow and creditor payments are monitored daily.

4.2. Budget cost of the network is compared to actual costs in the tender calculations.

4.3. Rise and fall clause calculations are undertaken and financial controller is advised of variations.

4.4. Reasons for any cost variations are analysed and identified.

4.5. Remedial action is taken and recorded as necessary to retain contract financial compliance.

5. Prepare final cost report.

5.1. Actual costs are compared with estimates at the completion of the job and a report is compiled detailing future actions.

5.2. Organisational rates are adjusted as required, based on the final cost report and current movements in prices and rates.
