Assess construction faults in large 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. Identify and analyse construction faults in large building projects.

1.1. Information is collected relating to specific construction faults.

1.2. Original specifications for the construction are analysed to identify potential causes of construction problem.

1.3. Construction problem is documented and communicated to relevant personnel in accordance with standard work practices.

1.4. Expert analysis and opinions are gathered as required from project team members and external professionals.

1.5. Problem solving techniques are used and typical faults and problems are identified and the action to rectify is deemed to be in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) open classification.

2. Analyse construction techniques, methods and materials.

2.1. Building terminology is used accurately in the communication of issues.

2.2. Working drawings and specifications are evaluated to identify any existing or designed in construction problems.

2.3. Alternative methods and materials to meet construction aims and objectives are prepared to the specification nominated in relevant legislation in the BCA (open classification) and Australian standards.

3. Evaluate alternative construction solutions.

3.1. Commonly occurring on-site problems with building materials and their causes are considered and evaluated.

3.2. Report identifying available alternative methods and materials available to meet the construction aims and objectives is prepared to specification.

3.3. Detailed sketches of available alternative methods and materials available to meet the construction aims and objectives are prepared to specification.

4. Resolve construction faults using alternative construction methods.

4.1. Suitable methods from the available alternative solutions are evaluated and recommended to resolve the problem, in accordance with project aims and objectives and using standard organisational processes.

4.2. Selected methods are integrated into the project in order to resolve construction problems in accordance with project aims.

4.3. Evaluation of the available alternative forms of construction are carried out in accordance with project aims.

5. Communicate preferred solution to construction problem.

5.1. Technical resolution to the identified problem is documented in accordance with project and organisational requirements.

5.2. Appropriate documentation is lodged with and communicated to appropriate project and other personnel.

5.3. Strategies are determined and put in place to monitor the implementation of corrective procedures.
