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 CPCCCO3050A, 'Carry out high performance concreting'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Carry out high performance concreting' 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
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 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.
Environmental requirements are identified for the project according to environmental plans and regulatory requirements.
Place high performance concrete.
Concrete tests for each specified performance property are performed according to specifications and associated testing standards.
Once transported, high performance concrete is discharged correctly into formwork, using correct mechanical or manual handling techniques and processes.
High performance concrete is placed by technique nominated in specifications to ensure timely placement and to avoid material segregation.
High performance concrete is compacted/vibrated and screeded to the nominated criteria into designated formwork according to specifications and supporting drawings.
High performance concrete is finished to specified thickness and height.
High performance concrete curing regime is applied as per specifications to include a selection of curing methods, which are then documented.
Concrete is protected from damage and pollution during construction using a plastic membrane.
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.
