Carry out levelling operations

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

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.


Plan and prepare.


Job requirements are obtained, confirmed with relevant personnel, and applied to planning.


Work site is inspected, and conditions and hazards are identified and reported as required.


Health and safety requirements for levelling operations at the work site are confirmed and applied to planning.


Levelling tools and equipment required for job are selected and checked for serviceability, and faults are rectified or reported before starting work.


Team roles and verbal and non-verbal communication signals are confirmed, as required.


Carry out levelling procedures using rise and fall method.


Instrument is accurately set up and tested for operation before commencing levelling activities.


Datum point is set up or located.


Readings are taken from the datum and at nominated or selected stations according to project specifications.


Backsights, intermediate sights and foresights are identified and levels are booked.


Instrument is transferred to another location, process is repeated, and change station is recorded in field book.


Reduced levels for all stations are calculated using rise and fall method of calculation, and accuracy of field book recordings is checked using the three check method.


Carry out levelling procedures using height of collimation method.


Instrument is accurately set up and operation and tolerances are checked.


Datum point is set up or located.


Level readingsare taken to datum, and the height of collimation is established.


Readings are taken at nominated or selected stations according to project specifications.


Instrument is transferred to another location, new height of collimation is established, and change station is recorded in field book.


Reduced levels are calculated using height of instrument method.


Reduced levels for all stations are identified from calculations and heights and levels are recorded.


Accuracy of readings is established using height of collimation method of calculation and three check method.


Calculate distances using stadia lines.


Distances are calculated from instrument to stations using staff, stadia lines, and identified factor of levelling instrument.


Readings and distances are recorded.


Clean up.


Tools and equipment are cleaned, checked and stored.


Levelling devices are maintained and stored according to manufacturer recommendations and standard work practices.
