Apply building codes and standards to 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. Analyse the purpose and basic intent of the BCA.

1.1. Objectives of the BCA are analysed for construction in residential and commercial buildings.

1.2. Conditions of the BCA and the purpose of the respective components are evaluated and documented for relevant building categories and building surveying procedures.

1.3. Deemed-to-satisfy (DTS) concept for construction to meet BCA requirements is evaluated and documented.

2. Locate and interpret code or standard requirements that are applicable to particular projects.

2.1. Clauses from the BCA that apply to particular projects are identified and recorded.

2.2. Prescriptive requirements of relevant BCA clauses are determined.

2.3. Standards that are referenced in the BCA are identified and recorded.

2.4. Special requirements that may apply to specific areas are identified and recorded.

3. Classify buildings.

3.1. Nature of a building is determined, with regard to use and arrangement.

3.2. BCA criteria are applied to determine the defined classification.

3.3. BCA requirements are interpreted for multiple classifications.

4. Apply solutions to construction problems for compliance with the BCA.

4.1. Criteria that will ensure construction methods comply with the BCA are determined.

4.2. Alternative approaches to a construction problem that will comply with the requirements of the BCA are reported.

4.3. Appropriate assessment methods used to determine whether a building solution complies with performance requirements and/or DTS provisions of the BCA are chosen and applied.
