Apply scripting language in authoring

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

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Investigate scripting options

1.1 Assess design specifications to identify areas where scripting languages may be required

1.2 Locate script libraries for pre-written scripts

1.3 Identify areas where customised or new scripts may be necessary

1.4 Present and discuss scripting options with relevant personnel, and confirm compliance with design specifications

2. Write scripts

2.1 Scope control structures and algorithms using pseudo-code and flow charts

2.2 Check objects and assets are in place and identified by appropriate labels

2.3 Identify and recommend event handlers

2.4 Write code using correct syntax to meet functional requirements

2.5 Write comments to document coding where necessary

2.6 Use authoring environment, where appropriate, to check code and syntax

2.7 Save code in appropriate format

2.8 Adopt safe ergonomic practices when using screens and keyboards for extended periods of time

3. Integrate scripting language

3.1 Source and integrate scripts into authoring environment

3.2 Confirm scripted elements comply with all navigation and graphic design interface considerations

3.3 Eliminate or merge redundant code to ensure code is clean

4. Test scripting language

4.1 Test routines to verify script fulfils requirements
