Locate underground services in surveying practice

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.


Plan location processes.


Project objectives, principal work activities, and constraints are identified and documented in consultation with appropriate persons.


Geophysics methods to locate services and spatial data requirements are determined.


Details of instruments and basic surveying techniques to be used are evaluated and determined according to project objectives.


Surveying equipment is selected, calibrated and verified according to manufacturer specifications.


Work is scheduled to be completed within available time according to organisational requirements.


Carry out surveying tasks.


Project management mechanisms are implemented to schedule, measure, record and report work progress according to organisational requirements.


Underground services are located and required components measured and marked according to project specifications.


Surveying equipment is used to collect and scrutinise spatial data to determine targets on lines of subterranean assets.


Measured spatial data is reduced to project reference system for comparison with design.


Measurements are validated and recorded according to project specifications, organisational requirements and standards.


Problems are identified and resolved, and contingencies managed according to organisational requirements and plans.


Finalise location processes.


Location processes are finalised and achievements reviewed against project and organisational requirements.


Appropriate persons are notified of results according to organisational requirements.


Documentation is completed and spatial data archived according to organisational requirements.
