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 CPPBDN8007, 'Manage the design of Type A constructions'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Manage the design of Type A constructions' 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
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.
Analyse the requirements for Type A constructions.
BCA requirements for Type A constructions are identified and evaluated.
Scope and nature of the proposed construction are analysed to identify impact on the BCA’s performance requirements for proposed Type A design solution.
Analysis is undertaken to determine whether the construction will be designed to meet performance requirements of the BCA by the use of an alternative solution, a deemed-to-satisfy (DTS) solution, or a blend of solutions.
Performance characteristics of construction materials and methods are reviewed to ensure they conform to Type A constructions.
Produce initial design drawings.
Design drawings required in planning approval application documentation are confirmed with regulatory authorities.
Compliance requirements to be addressed in design drawings are confirmed with regulatory authorities.
Timelines and methodologies for producing final design drawings are established and followed.
Design drawings are set up, named and filed according to workplace procedures.
Integrate expert input to inform the design.
Professionals and technical experts required to provide input into and develop components of the design solution are sourced and briefed, and work is commissioned.
Consultations are facilitated between technical experts and the building design team to ensure cross-impacts of the solution are understood and conform to required performance standards.
Technical input, specifications and drawings developed by technical experts are prepared for integration into overall documentation.
Refine spatial, structural and technical elements of building designs.
Factors contributing to spatial requirements and relationships are analysed and incorporated into building designs.
Checks are conducted to ensure standards for required components of the construction have been adhered to and documented.
Structural systems for Type A constructions are reviewed, in consultation with technical experts as required, and suitable systems are incorporated into building designs.
Construction and technical elements for Type A buildings are reviewed, in consultation with technical experts as required, and suitable elements are incorporated into building designs.
Aesthetic fusion of design elements is visualised, analysed and refined in building designs.
Address health and safety issues in building designs.
Obligations of building designers for health and safety during construction and use of Type A constructions are identified and analysed.
Health and safety issues specific to design team, construction team and users are researched, in consultation with client and stakeholders, and analysed.
Risk analyses of construction and use of Type A constructions are conducted, and suitable controls are selected and applied to design drawings.
Health and safety documentation for the building is created, processed and communicated to nominated personnel according to workplace procedures.
Refine sustainable design elements of building designs.
Optimum sustainable construction materials and methods are selected and incorporated into building designs.
Systems for sustainable water use
Energy-efficient design principles and renewable energy sources are reviewed and suitable solutions are incorporated into building designs.
Review building design for conformance to standards and approval processes.
Design drawings are reviewed in preparation for finalisation.
Design documentation is tested and analysed to confirm that design will pass the assessment methods used by the planning authority to ensure conformity to the BCA.
Obtain client approval of final design drawings and supporting information.
Design drawings are assessed against client and compliance requirements and anomalies are addressed.
Supporting information to the plans and specifications is compiled, checked and finalised.
Design drawings are presented and explained to client and stakeholders according to workplace procedures.
Detailed client and stakeholder feedback is encouraged and discussed, and required amendments are negotiated.
Design drawings and documentation are amended as required, and client approval is obtained, documented and processed according to workplace procedures.
