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 CPPSIS6036, 'Monitor engineering structures'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Monitor engineering structures' 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.
Prepare to monitor engineering structure.
Project specifications and engineering design information are interpreted to identify components to be measured, and accuracy and precision tolerances to be applied in consultation with appropriate persons.
Characteristics of operating environment and any special equipment and resource requirements are identified according to project specifications and organisational requirements.
Equipment to be used to collect data is selected and checked to ensure correct operation and functionality according to manufacturer specifications.
Organisation of project resources, equipment, materials and transport is designated to appropriate persons.
Develop project plan to monitor engineering structure.
Project objectives, deliverables, constraints and principal work activities are documented according to project specifications.
Information is included in project plan relating to identified risks and contingencies, resources, technologies and techniques to be used to collect spatial data.
Validation processes to verify integrity of required spatial data are devised and specified in project plan.
Work responsibilities are allocated and supervisory processes, checks and measures are implemented.
Implement monitoring tasks.
Project management mechanisms are implemented to schedule, measure, record and report progress of activities in relation to project plan.
Risk management and contingency strategies are devised and followed to identify and control hazards and risks, and ensure that monitoring activities comply with legal and statutory requirements.
Surveying equipment is used to measure identified spatial components according to project specifications.
Measured spatial data is reduced to project spatial reference system for comparison with design.
Measurements are validated, recorded and processed according to project specifications.
Non-conformities between engineering structure and project specifications are identified and resolved, or contingencies are managed according to organisational requirements.
Finalise and report monitoring results.
Monitoring is finalised and results are checked for compliance with project specifications and organisational requirements.
Appropriate persons are notified of monitoring results according to organisational requirements.
Documentation is completed and spatial data archived according to project and organisational requirements.
Monitoring results are reviewed against project specifications and findings are reported to appropriate persons according to organisational requirements.
