Undertake a basic computer design project

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


Plan and prepare for the design.


Work health and safety (WHS) requirements, including ergonomic and personal protection needs are observed throughout the work.


Outline action plan is prepared, taking into account scope of work to be done, available time and a critical issues timeline.


Equipment and materials, including available computing systems, required for the work are identified and obtained or scheduled.


Detail of the design requirement is identified from a prepared client brief and relevant information.


Details of client’s preferred construction materials are confirmed with relevant supervisor.


Details of services, inclusions and quality requirements are confirmed with relevant supervisor.


Prepare the first draft design.


Design software capable of producing required results is selected.


Design system is prepared for use following authorised set-up procedures.


Design parameters and other relevant information for the proposed structure are progressively placed into the computer system.


Design information is modified in the system as anomalies and errors become apparent and the transactions are recorded.


First draft design is completed and prepared for presentation to the client.


Refine and confirm the design requirements.


First draft design, together with justifications for departure from the client brief, are explained to relevant supervisor for negotiation with the client.


Details of variations to the design that the relevant supervisor has negotiated and agreed with the client are noted and confirmed.


Finalise the design.


Agreed variations to the first draft design are converted to usable data that meets statutory and regulatory authority requirements.


Variations are incorporated into the design using software capabilities.


Required explanatory information and margin note detail are incorporated into the design.


Design is finalised, titled and presented in both plan and elevation form to the relevant supervisor.
