Develop concepts for small-scale building design projects and finalise solutions with clients

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


Analyse project information to clarify design concepts.


Design brief and site analysis documentation for small-scale building design projects are reviewed and further research requirements are noted and met.


Contextual factors affecting design options are analysed to determine key design parameters.


Compliance requirements are analysed and limitations on design options are interpreted.


Construction materials and methods appropriate to the project are reviewed and impacts on design options are analysed.


Project information is synthesised and design principles are applied to develop ideas for building designs.


Produce concept sketches


Building design ideas are explored through sketching and consultation with colleagues, as appropriate.


Sketches with accurate proportions are produced within project timelines to illustrate design concepts.


Rendering techniques are applied to sketches to enhance readability and depict light, shade and a range of material finishes.


Sketches are reviewed, refined and adjusted to ensure design concepts meet requirements of design briefs and address constraints imposed by project sites and compliance obligations.


Scaled renditions of design concepts are produced as required.


Consult clients to finalise design concepts


Design concepts are presented to client and details of design solutions and choices are explained.


Client is encouraged to give feedback, and questioning techniques and sketching skills are used to explore requested adjustments to design concepts.


Implications of adjustments are discussed with client and final decisions on design concepts are negotiated.


Negotiated adjustments are made to design concepts and client’s approval of final drawings is obtained and recorded according to workplace procedures.
