Develop spreadsheets for spatial data

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 CPPSIS5060, 'Develop spreadsheets for spatial data'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Develop spreadsheets for spatial data' 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 spreadsheet tasks.

1.1.

Spreadsheet requirements for spatial data entry, storage, output, reporting and presentation are identified to determine task requirements in consultation with appropriate persons.

1.2.

Tasks are evaluated to identify design parameters, required mathematical formulas and areas where automation would increase efficiency according to task requirements.

1.3.

Software is set up and checked to ensure functionality and capacity to meet task and organisational requirements.

2.

Set up spreadsheets.

2.1.

Spreadsheet templates are developed and edited to standardise spreadsheet operation and ensure quality and consistency in format and design.

2.2.

Linked worksheet solution is developed using software functions and formulas to meet task requirements.

2.3.

Worksheets are formatted to incorporate cell and data attributes, formulas and graphs with labels and titles.

2.4.

Formulas are tested to confirm that output meets task requirements and errors are identified and resolved or contingencies managed.

3.

Use functions and features of spreadsheet software.

3.1.

Spatial data is entered, checked and edited according to task and organisational requirements.

3.2.

Spatial data is imported and exported between compatible spreadsheets, and host documents are adjusted according to task requirements.

3.3.

Software documentation and online help are used to overcome problems with spreadsheet design and production.

3.4.

Spreadsheets, including graphs, are produced and stored according to organisational requirements.

4.

Finalise spreadsheets.

4.1.

Completed spreadsheets are protected to prevent accidental corruption and are archived according to organisational requirements.

4.2.

Documentation is completed and appropriate persons are informed of results according to organisational requirements.
