Perform geodetic surveying computations

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 CPPSIS5054, 'Perform geodetic surveying computations'.

Books
Reference books for 'Perform geodetic surveying computations' 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.

1.

Prepare for geodetic surveying computations.

1.1.

Task requirements are identified and required geodetic computations determined in consultation with appropriate persons.

1.2.

Industry-accepted standards relating to accuracy and tolerances are identified according to organisational requirements.

1.3.

Computational equipment is selected according to task and organisational requirements.

2.

Perform computations on reference surface.

2.1.

Relevant reference surface is selected according to required geodetic computations.

2.2.

Geodetic data is reduced to identified reference surface according to industry-accepted standards and using computational equipment.

2.3.

Geodetic components for reference surface are identified and computed according to industry-accepted standards.

2.4.

Computations on reference surface are identified and performed according to standards.

2.5.

Reference surface computations are checked and problems resolved according to standards and organisational requirements.

2.6.

Reference surface (spheroid) coordinates are converted to projection plane coordinates according to standards.

3.

Perform computations on projection plane.

3.1.

Relevant projection plane is selected according to required geodetic computations.

3.2.

Data is reduced to required projection plane according to standards.

3.3.

Geodetic components for projection plane are identified and computed according to standards.

3.4.

Projection plane coordinates are converted to reference surface (spheroid) coordinates according to standards.
