Manage information on construction methods, materials and services for a building surveying team

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
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver CPCCBS8002, 'Manage information on construction methods, materials and services for a building surveying team'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Manage information on construction methods, materials and services for a building surveying team' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1.

Develop an information system for construction methods and materials.

1.1.

Sources of information on traditional, new and emerging construction methods for BCA classes and types of buildings are researched and evaluated and processes are put in place to access information and maintain its currency.

1.2.

Sources of information on traditional, new and emerging construction materials for BCA classes and types of buildings are researched and evaluated and processes are put in place to access information and maintain its currency.

1.3.

Sources of information on traditional, new and emerging systems and componentsfor services for BCA classes and types of buildings are researched and evaluated and processes are put in place to access information and maintain its currency.

1.4.

Information management system is developed and maintained to ensure accuracy, currency and comprehensiveness of information.

2.

Analyse construction methods information.

2.1.

Information relating to applying different construction methods to the foundations and footings of each class and type of building is analysed and recorded.

2.2.

Information relating to applying different construction methods to the structural and supporting systems of each class and type of building is analysed and recorded.

2.3.

Information relating to applying different construction methods to the enclosing systems of each class and type of building is analysed and recorded.

2.4.

Construction methods are evaluated in relation to different geographical locations and climatic conditions, and strengths and weaknesses for particular contexts are recorded.

3.

Analyse construction materials information.

3.1.

Information relating to applying different construction materials to the foundations and footings of each class and type of building is analysed and recorded.

3.2.

Information relating to applying different construction materials to the structural and supporting systems of each class and type of building is analysed and recorded.

3.3.

Information relating to applying different construction materials to the enclosing systems of each class and type of building is analysed and recorded.

3.4.

Construction materials are evaluated in relation to different geographical locations and climatic conditions, and strengths and weaknesses for particular contexts are noted.

4.

Analyse information relating to services.

4.1.

Information relating to energy supply and infrastructure for different classes and types of buildings is analysed and recorded.

4.2.

Information relating to heating and cooling systems for different classes and types of buildings is analysed and recorded.

4.3.

Information relating to fire protection systems for different classes and types of buildings is analysed and recorded.

4.4.

Information relating to gas and hydraulic services supply and infrastructure for different classes and types of buildings is analysed and recorded.

4.5.

Information relating to elevator and escalator systems for different classes and types of buildings is analysed and recorded.

4.6.

Service systems and components are evaluated in relation to different geographical locations and climatic conditions, and strengths and weaknesses for particular contexts are noted.

5.

Develop processes for the application of information.

5.1.

Information relating to the root cause of building incidents is analysed and methods, materials and service failures are noted.

5.2.

Own analyses and notes on construction methods, materials and services are shared and discussed with relevant internal or external personnel to confirm findings and clarify meaning as required.

5.3.

Advisory notes on the application of construction methods, materials and service systems and components to different classes and types of buildings, are prepared for building surveying team and for clients, as required.

5.4.

Procedures and checklists are developed to facilitate building surveying team members’ thorough assessment of construction methods, materials and services for different classes and types of buildings.
