Apply site surveys and set-out procedures to medium 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



1. Set out a T-shaped or L-shaped building on a selected site with minimal profiles.

1.1. Site information and dimensions are identified from site plan and checked against plan drawings.

1.2. Survey pegs are measured to ensure correct identification occurred before pilot pegs are positioned.

1.3. Profiles pegs are set up on site at a working distance from pilot pegs and parallel to pilot line.

1.4. Marks to indicate outside of building or other structural members are made.

2. Prepare and test levelling devices.

2.1. Various components of levelling devices are identified.

2.2. Basic tests on levelling device accuracy are performed according to manufacturer specifications.

2.3. Effects of maladjustment in levelling devices are identified and recorded according to standard operating procedures.

3. Operate levelling devices.

3.1. Temporary adjustments to set up levelling equipment are carried out in accordance with standard operating procedures.

3.2. Horizontal and vertical angles are determined using levelling devices.

3.3. Site is set out to specifications using levelling devices.

4. Identify specialised levelling and surveying equipment available on large building projects for various set-out and checking procedures.

4.1. Differences between various types of specialised surveying equipment are researched and recorded.

4.2. Survey of each level checked for vertical accuracy of 10mm using two levelling devices is carried out.

5. Compute coordinates and bearings, distances related to grids and general set-out work on large building sites.

5.1. Angular relationship between different bearings (whole circle) is demonstrated.

5.2. Bearing and distance between coordinates are calculated.

5.3. Coordinates of a point given the bearing and distance from a point with known coordinates are calculated.

5.4. Offsets from a coordinated point given the bearing and distance from a point with known coordinates are determined.

5.5. Information necessary to set out a structure using a site plan is determined.
