Research and analyse access solutions for the built environment

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 CPPACC8002A, 'Research and analyse access solutions for the built environment'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Research and analyse access solutions for the built environment' 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

1

Source and manage a range of information to inform consideration of access solutions.

1.1

Sources of information on the effects of disabilities and the interaction of people with disabilities and the built environment are researched and evaluated.

1.2

Sources of information on compliance requirements for access to and use of the built environment are researched and evaluated.

1.3

Forums for discussion and debate regarding solutions for providing access to and use of the built environment are researched and evaluated.

1.4

Processes are put in place to ensure access to and currency of information regarding legislative changes and best practice solutions.

1.5

Information management system is developed and maintained to ensure currency.

1.6

Information is shared and discussed with internal or external personnel as required.

2

Analyse information to deliver access solutions in the built environment.

2.1

4.1

Professional judgement is used to evaluate the efficacy and efficiency of potential access solutions.

4.2

Professional colleagues and networks are consulted to share information and critique the efficacy and efficiency of potential access solutions.

4.3

Research findings on best practice access and use solutions are documented and shared with colleagues and relevant professionals.

4.4

Mechanisms are put in place to review and contribute to the updating of professional literature regarding access to the built environment.
