Assess construction faults in residential buildings

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



1. Identify and analyse construction faults arising on residential building sites.

1.1. Information to identify and analyse construction faults is collected relating to the specific construction problem.

1.2. Construction problem in construction in residential buildings is identified relative to original specifications and form of construction.

1.3. Construction problem is communicated to appropriate personnel and documented in accordance with standard work practices.

1.4. Problem solving techniques are used and typical construction faults and problems for building categories are identified and action to rectify is deemed to be in accordance with the BCA.

2. Identify construction techniques, methods and materials.

2.1. Building terminology is used accurately in the communication of issues.

2.2. Existing or designed construction problems are identified and evaluated from working drawings and specifications.

2.3. Alternative methods and materials to meet construction aims and objectives are prepared to specification nominated in the BCA and Australian standards.

2.4. Detailed sketches of available alternative methods and materials available to meet the construction aims and objectives are prepared to specification.

3. Resolve construction faults using alternative construction methods.

3.1. Suitable construction methods from available alternative solutions are evaluated and recommended to resolve the problem in accordance with project aims and objectives, the BCA, relevant State and Territory Appendix to the BCA and Australian standard.

3.2. Selected method is integrated into the project in order to resolve the construction problems in accordance with project aims.

3.3. Evaluation of available alternative forms of construction is carried out in accordance with project aims.

4. Resolve common on-site faults with building materials.

4.1. Commonly occurring on-site problems with building materials and their causes are evaluated.

4.2. Corrective and preventative measures are identified and implemented.
