Manage audio system control networks

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 'Manage audio system control networks' 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

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

1. Determine audio network requirements

1.1 Establish system requirements in consultation with relevant personnel and with reference to production documentation

1.2 Investigate available system resources and determine capabilities

1.3 Draw accurate system flow charts with all components in correct order

1.4 Allocate audio stage boxes where analogue audio is required

1.5 Determine audio schedules and allow for pre-set system configurations and dynamic system changes

1.6 Discuss and finalise plans for audio system control networks that meet production requirements and timelines

2. Test and commission network

2.1 Assemble hardware components and network topography according to system needs and safety procedures

2.2 Complete interface with analogue audio as required

2.3 Test network topography and resources to ensure correct functioning

2.4 Commission analogue audio components appropriately

2.5 Activate and implement all DSP system pre-sets

3. Monitor network

3.1 Crosscheck performance of amplifiers and loudspeakers according to DSP system assignments

3.2 Apply knowledge of data interfacing and protocols to work activities

3.3 Identify problems with network, then take appropriate action or report to relevant colleagues as required

3.4 In consultation with relevant personnel, evaluate effectiveness of audio network operations and note areas for future improvement
