Construct mechanical sets

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

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

1. Determine requirements for mechanical sets

1.1 In consultation with relevant colleagues and with reference to production documentation, confirm requirements for mechanical sets

1.2 Discuss construction and safety issues associated with constructing mechanical sets and plan accordingly

1.3 Take budgets and other constraints into account when planning work

1.4 Reach agreement on scope of own work and construction deadlines

1.5 Update construction plans to take account of discussions as required

2. Prepare for construction work

2.1 Select equipment and materials based on the way in which mechanical set pieces are to be used

2.2 Consider different construction options and use those that will enhance the final outcome

2.3 Calculate quantities of required materials, avoiding waste where possible

3. Complete construction work

3.1 Follow construction plans to create mechanical set pieces, ensuring that safety procedures are followed at all times

3.2 Check items produced in terms of durability, quality of finish and suitability for production requirements

3.3 Seek feedback on work in progress and adjust construction techniques as required

3.4 Test operation of completed set pieces according to organisational requirements

3.5 Contribute to evaluations of set construction processes and note ways to improve own work performance
