Apply land and planning law to surveying

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.


Determine survey requirements and azimuth.


Relevant information is gathered to determine survey requirements in consultation with appropriate persons.


Survey marks are located as indicated on survey plan.


Position of parcel of land corners is established from identified survey marks.


Right on boundary or parallel azimuth is established.


Monumented and non-monumented occupations are used to establish an azimuth parallel to street boundary.


Assumed azimuth is adopted to enable completion of field survey, and subsequent calculations and adjustments to swing onto azimuth are made.


Azimuth derived from marks at opposite extremities of survey is calculated.


Relationship between alignment marks, kerb lines, kerb as laid, and occupations is interpreted when azimuth is fixed using alignment marks, kerbs and occupations shown in alignment plans.


Undertake mark-out survey and fix front and rear corners, angles and line marks.


Azimuth is established by direct or indirect means and front corners of allotment are fixed.


Side fix is established for the allotment using occupations, and monuments or reference marks.


Direct methods are used to establish positions of rear corners.


Traverse and calculations from street azimuth and side fix are made to set out rear corners by indirect means.


Requirement to use line marks on long or obstructed boundaries is identified.


Suitable checking procedure to validate positioning of all placed marks is identified and followed.


Meet local government building requirements.


Re-mark surveys and local government siting requirements for the issue of building certificate are met.


Relevant survey regulations relating to supervision and accuracy of surveys, field procedures, and survey searching are adhered to.


Field notes are prepared according to organisational requirements and legal and statutory standards.


Calculate identification survey.


Position of improvements in relation to boundaries is calculated using industry-accepted methods.


Position of improvements in relation to set-out buildings is calculated using coordinate system.


Prepare draft survey report and sketches.


Draft survey report and accompanying sketches are prepared for a re-mark survey according to organisational requirements.


Physical constraints and environmental impacts of development are incorporated into report.
