Apply ergonomic principles to accessible building design and fitout

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



1Determine the range of human posture and body strength values within a defined population.

1.1 Key working postures of the human body are identified accurately.

1.2 Appropriate methodology for measuring key ergonomic features is selected.

1.3 Ergonomicdata is recorded in a recognised format appropriate for retrieval and statistical analysis in accordance with organisational requirements.

2Compare ergonomic data used in published architectural design documents with ergonomic data derived through measurement of a defined population.

2.1 Published architectural design data is compared and verified against ergonomic data derived through measurement of a defined population.

2.2 Ergonomic data that proves different to published architectural design data is analysed to assess the extent of difference, possible causes for the difference and likely consequences of altering published architectural design data.

3Apply the principles of ergonomics to the design of workplaces.

3.1 The work processes undertaken in various locations are analysed to determine economical task sequencing.

3.2 Facilities are designed to locate the most essential elements in close proximity to support their functionality.

4Identify the critical ergonomic features impacting on the ability of a person with a disability to work and function independently.

4.1 The level of functioning of a person with a disability is determined in consultation with the client.

4.2 Ergonomic features relevant to the ability of a person with a disability to work and function independently are identified in consultation with the client, using ergonomic methodology in accordance with organisational requirements.

4.3 Situations requiring specialist advice are identified and assistance is sought as required in accordance with organisational requirements.

4.4 Appropriate strategies for maximising the ability of a person with a disability to work and function independently are identified.

4.5 Identified strategies are communicated to the appropriate people for the design, construction and fitout of the client's premises.
