Design interaction

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

Reference books for 'Design interaction' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to 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. Identify project requirements

1.1 Discuss design briefs with relevant personnel to clarify production requirements

1.2 Discuss, with relevant personnel, the purpose of the interactive media product

1.3 Identify technical parameters of appropriate interactive media products, including format and delivery platform

1.4 Identify target audience and user characteristics to inform design of interactions

2. Generate ideas for interactions

2.1 Research the delivery platform and analyse its potential for human-computer interaction

2.2 Generate a range of ideas for interactions to engage users

2.3 Evaluate new ideas and incorporate them as appropriate

2.4 Consult relevant personnel to confirm all options are considered

2.5 Select a systematic approach to interaction design that will meet creative, production and technical requirements specified in briefs

3. Draft interaction design specifications

3.1 Draft design specifications for all interactive sequences

3.2 Select sequences as prototypes and demonstrate prototype interactions to relevant personnel using a wireframe

3.3 Conduct user experience tests with prototype interactive sequence

3.4 Use test results to measure user engagement and identify logical inconsistencies in design

3.5 Document all feedback and incorporate into draft design specifications

4. Finalise interaction designs

4.1 Re-evaluate interactions on the basis of feedback from user tests

4.2 Discuss and confirm additional requirements or modifications to the interaction design with relevant personnel

4.3 Write final interaction design specifications to reflect all additional requirements or modifications
