Install camera supports

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.

1. Plan camera support installation

1.1 Refer to camera plans and confirm equipment and support requirements for production

1.2 Assess risks and work health and safety (WHS) issues associated with installing camera supports and operating cameras from supports

1.3 Develop strategies to minimise risk and address WHS issues and incorporate these strategies into the planning process

1.4 Identify aspects of camera plans that may require modification and negotiate changes to camera plans with relevant production staff

1.5 Recommend alternative camera mounts where risk or cost of mount outweighs value of required shots

1.6 Purchase supplies and equipment within budget constraints

1.7 Check equipment is operational and organise repair of faults as required

1.8 Confirm availability of equipment and supports for installation on location, according to production schedules

1.9 Complete documentation according to enterprise requirements

2. Erect camera platforms and towers

2.1 Construct platforms and towers that are level, secure, on solid ground and capable of holding the required maximum load

2.2 Secure equipment fastenings and personnel harnesses

2.3 Check operational and electrical equipment meet WHS guidelines

2.4 Review final structures and confirm they are safe

3. Prepare cranes for cameras

3.1 Confirm camera cranes are in safe working order before work commences

3.2 Confirm the maximum safe working load of cranes before camera mounting commences

3.3 Display signage on cranes to indicate their safe working load

3.4 Fix snap plates or hothead mounts according to manufacturer’s specifications

4. Attach and secure cameras

4.1 Attach cameras to mounts so they are secure, level and steady

4.2 Attach appropriate camera mounts to supports or directly to moving object or vehicle being used to capture shots

4.3 Check power supply is appropriate and run power cables from source to cameras and remote-control consoles and monitors

4.4 Confirm camera operators are able to operate equipment without being a hazard to personnel involved in shoots or to the general public

4.5 Secure cameras and cabling safely to avoid damage and exposure to the elements when unattended

5. Disassemble tracks, platforms and towers

5.1 Use safe manual handling techniques to break down and carry equipment

5.2 Clean and pack equipment to avoid damage and prepare for transport

5.3 Report and document equipment that requires repairs or maintenance according to enterprise procedures
