Assess structural requirements for buildings up to three storeys

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 structural requirements and loads commonly used in structural design.

1.1. Assessment of structural requirements relating to equilibrium, stability, strength, functionality, economy and aesthetics is undertaken.

1.2. Different types of loading and unloading methods and the effect on structures are identified and documented in accordance with BCA, relevant Australian standards, suppliers' technical data and empirical methods and adherence to legislative requirements for BCA Class 2 to 9 buildings.

2. Analyse effects of force and moments on structural elements.

2.1. Force, moments and equilibrium of force and the effects on structures are identified and recorded.

2.2. Equilibrium of forces for co-planar systems in consideration of stability is identified and compared for performance.

3. Analyse properties and behaviour of structural materials.

3.1. Effect of force on materials in tension, compression, stress, strain and elasticity is identified and recorded.

3.2. Structural properties and performances are differentiated for common materials and recorded.

4. Identify section properties of structural elements and their effect on structural performance.

4.1. Cross-sectional geometry and common structural shapes are identified.

4.2. Section properties and the relationship between first and second area moments, section models and gyration and deflection of beams are identified and compared for performance.

4.3. Section properties' values for I (moment of inertia), Z (section modulus) and R (radius) for common sections are determined using tables or standard formulas and compared for performance.

5. Compare performance and properties of spanning elements.

5.1. Structural considerations of loaded spanning elements for bending moments, shear forces, deflection and torsion are determined and compared for performance.

5.2. Bending behaviour and performance of loaded support beams of various types, shapes, spans and loads are determined and compared for performance.

5.3. Effects that connections have upon the structural performance of beams are identified and compared for performance.

5.4. Principles of slab behaviour in relation to spans and stress distribution are identified and compared for performance.

6. Compare performance criteria for columns.

6.1. Effect of slenderness ratio that changes in length, cross-sections, connections and materials will have on the strength of a column is determined and compared for performance.

6.2. Eccentric and axial load effect on the strength of column section and materials are determined and compared for performance.

7. Compare methods of stress distribution in connections between structural elements.

7.1. Transmission of forces between structural elements are identified and interpreted.

7.2. Methods of distributing stresses in connections between structural elements are identified and compared for performance.

8. Determine how loads of various types occur and impinge on a building structure.

8.1. Differences between types of loading, including dead load, live load, wind load, earthquake load and other load, causing actions are determined and compared for performance.

8.2. Dead loads are determined using BCA and relevant Australian standards.

8.3. Indication of direction of wind pressures on the various surfaces of buildings specified in BCA and relevant Australian standards are determined.

9. Evaluate design of high performance structural elements.

9.1. Factors that determine the form of long span structural elements, including bending movement, deflection and shear forces, are researched, considered and evaluated.

9.2. Performance in high performance structural elements is identified and evaluated.

9.3. Use of steel to reinforce concrete is investigated and evaluated and the outcomes or results are recorded.
