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 CPCCCO3051A, 'Conduct off-form vertical concrete operations'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Conduct off-form vertical concrete operations' 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 and applied for the project according to environmental plans and regulatory obligations.
Set out and prepare slip or jump form location.
Location and size of pour are set out to requirements of job drawings and specifications.
Equipment associated with the installation of slip or jump formwork concrete projects is prepared.
Edge formwork is prepared, placed and fixed with plumb and alignment to specification requirements, and is set out.
Form release agent is applied to slip or jump formwork with appliance or machine to specifications.
Place and tie reinforcement and cast-in fittings.
Reinforcement, accessories and cast-in fittings are checked for conformity with design and specifications.
Reinforcement and accessories are positioned to engineer’s drawings and specifications.
Reinforcement is tied and/or welded in correct placement according to engineer’s drawings and specifications.
Place, finish and cure concrete.
Sequencing of concrete placement is determined according to specifications.
Once transported, concrete is evenly placed into formwork in layers and consolidated to specification, avoiding material segregation and using approved compaction method.
Concrete surface is screeded and finished to specification ensuring cast-in fittings are clear.
Curing process is applied according to specification.
Slip or jump formwork is progressed by riggers and placement cycle is continued, avoiding cold joint.
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.
