Apply structural principles to the construction of medium rise buildings

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 structural principles to planning the erection or demolition of a structure.

1.1. Main structural principles that apply to the erection of medium rise buildings are identified.

1.2. Performance characteristics of the structural elements, including materials identified in the building's plan, are identified, analysed and applied to the planning of the construction work.

1.3. Demolition of existing structures is undertaken in accordance with legislative and planning requirements and safe work practices.

2. Coordinate and manage site and job set-up assessment.

2.1. Processes are put in place to analyse the stability of soils and capacity of the site to support the construction loads.

2.2. Structural requirements for retaining walls are identified in conjunction with related industry professionals and applied to the planning process.

2.3. Structural function and requirements for temporary structural elements are analysed and applied to the planning process.

3. Coordinate and manage construction of footing systems.

3.1. Set-out of building is checked for compliance with documented building plans.

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

3.3. Footings specified in the building plan are laid and checked for compliance with relevant codes and accepted industry construction principles.

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. Coordinate and manage structural elements of the construction process.

4.1. Technical construction principles and performance characteristics of the construction materials are identified and analysed in the planning of project.

4.2. Building plans and relevant standards and codes are identified and implemented to ensure appropriate allowances have been made for plumbing, electrical conduits and other services to be installed.

4.3. Processes for the construction of structural elements are identified and confirmed as compliant with relevant Australian standards and codes and manufacturer specifications, with reference to specialists as required, and then implemented.
