Place concrete

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


Plan and prepare.


Work instructions, work health and safety (WHS) requirements and other information relevant to the work are identified, confirmed and applied for planning and preparation purposes.


Plant, tools and equipment consistent with job requirements are selected and checked for serviceability, and faults are rectified and reported before work begins.


Material quantity requirements, including the volume of concrete required, are identified and calculated according to plans, specifications and quality requirements.


Materials appropriate to the work application are obtained, prepared, safely handled and located ready for use.


Time required for concrete pour is estimated based on size of area to be concreted, volume of concrete required, and level of complexity of concrete pour.


Environmental requirements are identified for the project according to environmental plans and regulatory requirements.


Define and prepare location for concrete placement.


Location of concrete placement is determined from plans and specifications.


Implications for concrete placement near existing structures are discussed with relevant personnel and appropriate processes are implemented to ensure separation or connection.


Location for placement is checked to be free of debris and waste.


Safe working area is maintained around pour location using barriers and signage consistent with WHS regulations.


Plant, tools and equipment are obtained and checked to suit planned placement.


Receive and dispatch concrete.


Delivery advice is checked for accuracy against ordered material.


Access to the site is cleared.


Concrete delivery vehicle is directed to location of discharge.


Concrete is discharged via chute into appropriate receptacle.


Place concrete.


Concrete is placed in horizontal layers into location according to indicated levels.


Height of vertical drop of concrete is minimised to avoid segregation of concrete materials.


Poured concrete is consolidated during process using approved compaction or vibration method.


Measurements and calculations are conducted throughout the pour to ensure sufficient concrete is delivered to fill the required area and orders are placed for shortfall as required.


Finished levels are checked against datum using appropriate levelling device.


Concrete is screeded to correct levels and grades using appropriate straight edged tool or formwork mounted screed.


Clean up.


Work area is cleared and materials disposed of, reused or recycled according to regulations, codes of practice and job specification.


Plant, tools and equipment are cleaned, checked, maintained and stored according to manufacturer recommendations and standard work practices.
