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 CUABRT501, 'Collaborate on the design of broadcasting facilities'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Collaborate on the design of broadcasting facilities' 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.
1. Clarify design requirements
1.1 Confirm overall objectives for proposed broadcasting facilities in consultation with relevant personnel
1.2 Identify factors, including technological change, that may impact how facilities are designed, including for future needs
1.3 Research the market for complete solutions that could meet the design objectives
1.4 Research and assess the range of equipment available to meet facility requirements and check compatibility with existing systems or infrastructure if applicable
1.5 Discuss the range of solutions with clients and other relevant personnel and reach agreement on preferred approach
1.6 Document agreed approach and obtain sign-off from relevant personnel to proceed with detailed design specifications
2. Collaborate on determining design approach
2.1 Generate and evaluate design options that are realistic in terms of budget, users, servicing, network integrity and timelines
2.2 Advise clients on capital equipment purchases that may influence choice of design option
2.3 Evaluate options and select the one that best meets project objectives, taking the budget into account
2.4 Discuss selected option with client and amend as required to incorporate their feedback
2.5 Prepare information, diagrams and equipment specifications to support agreed design option
2.6 Discuss design brief with personnel involved in implementation of design and incorporate their ideas into overall approach
3. Finalise designs
3.1 Check proposal complies with relevant industry regulations and standards, including work health and safety (WHS) and copyright
3.2 Prepare design plans that specify work, equipment, personnel and materials required, as well as arrangements for contractors and equipment purchase or hire
3.3 Prepare detailed drawings and specifications to support design plans, using a range of formats, design techniques and standard drawing notations
3.4 Prepare documentation relating to installation or modification, testing and ongoing operations and maintenance, and attach to design plans
3.5 Discuss and confirm additional requirements or modifications to design plans with relevant personnel
3.6 Discuss intellectual property and copyright protection with client and obtain final sign-off on design plans from client
3.7 Evaluate self and design process and note areas for improvement
