Set out stormwater systems

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.


Prepare for stormwater system set-out.


Project and client requirements for stormwater system are identified and interpreted.


Relevant plans, maps and stormwater specifications are accessed and analysed to identify principal work activities.


Equipment is selected and prepared according to manufacturer specifications and organisational requirements.


Work is planned in consultation with appropriate persons to meet survey specifications and timeframes.


Use control techniques for set-out.


Horizontal control points are located throughout the work area and coordinates are set out according to plans and specifications.


Design points are set out from base lines by offsetting, and positions are checked to ensure correct tolerances according to specifications.


Primary and secondary controls are used and accuracy is checked according to plans and specifications.


Set-out pegs or markers are used to indicate base lines and offsets relative to the work area.


Vertical control points are established to ensure design points are positioned at correct levels according to plans and specifications.


Offsets and profiles are put in place to define the main lines of stormwater works and provide vertical controls.


Measured surveying data is reduced and calculations, including fall of land and volume, are conducted according to industry-accepted standards and organisational requirements.


Finalise stormwater system set-out.


Measurements are checked according to plans and specifications to ensure correct plan position and reduced level of set-out.


Discrepancies between specifications and actual activities are identified and addressed or reported according to organisational requirements.


Stormwater system set-out is finalised and documentation completed according to organisational requirements.
