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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver CPPACC5008A, 'Assess the construction of existing buildings and new building work required to be accessible'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Assess the construction of existing buildings and new building work required to be accessible' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
1Research compliance with building and planning legislation for building access.
1.1 Effects of planning and construction legislation are investigated, interpreted and communicated to others throughout the design and construction of the building project.
1.2 Planning and construction effects of the BCA and construction requirements of relevant Australian standards on access are researched and documented.
1.3 Effects of state and territory legislation, local government and service supply authorities on design and construction for the provision of access are researched and documented.
1.4 Methods of construction and methods of classification are identified and evaluated.
2Record all relevant planning and construction information.
2.1 Building planning and construction information is determined and recorded using appropriate industry terminology and symbols.
2.2 All salient features of a site concerning access, sufficient for the preparation of design and construction documents, are recorded.
3Investigate and evaluate a site for the construction of an accessible building.
3.1 Types and principles of construction relevant to design and construction are identified and evaluated according to relevant building legislation.
3.2 Structural systems commonly used in buildings are reviewed and those relevant to the site are identified.
4Inspect the construction site at appropriate intervals.
4.1 The project plan is obtained from the principal contractor in accordance with organisational requirements.
4.2 Trade sequencing points appropriate to the provision of access within buildings are identified and documented.
4.3 Access to the construction site is negotiated with the principal contractor in accordance with organisational requirements.
4.4 The construction is inspected at appropriate trade sequencing points in accordance with organisational requirements.
5Evaluate construction standards and practices for access compliance.
5.1 Standards and practices for claddings, linings, finishes and coatings associated with buildings are identified and evaluated.
5.2 Standards and practices for window, door and joinery fabrication and installation are identified and evaluated.
5.3 Basic principles and integration of building services into the building are identified and evaluated.
5.4 Structural principles of loads, forces, stresses and strains applied in the design and construction of buildings are identified and evaluated.
5.5 Construction standards and practices for the installation of the building services are identified and evaluated.
5.6 Construction standards and practices relating to stair, balustrade and handrail construction are identified and evaluated.
5.7 Alternative approaches to construction are evaluated for access in accordance with relevant building legislation.
