Review and report structural integrity of building designs

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

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1.

Review project documentation to identify structural systems.

1.1.

Site conditions and nature of proposed footings are identified from project documentation and noted in project file.

1.2.

Nature and format of floor systems are identified from project documentation and noted.

1.3.

Nature and format of walls and wall sheeting and cladding systems are identified from project documentation and noted.

1.4.

Nature and format of roofs and roof cladding systems are identified from project documentation and noted.

2.

Evaluate effects of loads and forces.

2.1.

Geophysical and climatic conditions at different locations are researched.

2.2.

Types of loads acting on project buildings are identified and noted.

2.3.

Stresses and strains acting on project buildings are identified and noted.

2.4.

Properties of project structural building materials and responses to loads and forces are researched and noted.

3.

Review structural integrity of building designs.

3.1.

Structural integrity of proposed footings is reviewed, under supervision, for compliance with structural engineer’s notes and relevant codes and standards.

3.2.

Proposed floor system components are reviewed for structural integrity and compliance with structural engineer’s notes and relevant codes and standards.

3.3.

Structural integrity of proposed walls and wall sheeting and cladding systems are reviewed for compliance with structural engineer’s notes and relevant codes and standards.

3.4.

Structural integrity of proposed roofs and roof cladding system components are reviewed for compliance with structural engineer’s notes and relevant codes and standards.

3.5.

Anomalies in structural integrity and compliance are noted according to workplace procedures.

4.

Report findings and amend drawings.

4.1.

Review of structural integrity of project building is reported to, and discussed with, designer and consultant engineer according to workplace procedures, and information from discussion is noted.

4.2.

Drawings are amended and notated according to instructions of designer as required.
