Manage wireless audio operations

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

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria

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

1. Prepare for wireless audio operations

1.1 In consultation with relevant personnel and with reference to production documentation, identify factors that impact on the operation of wireless audio equipment

1.2 Assess both technical and performance factors to establish the most appropriate approach to using wireless audio equipment according to regulatory requirements

1.3 Identify wireless frequencies in use within range, including security and building services users

1.4 Identify wireless instrument and in-ear monitor frequencies that could be used by performers and musicians associated with performances

1.5 Plot proposed and currently used frequencies onto suitable plot and compare with legal and available frequencies

1.6 Allocate frequencies to people or departments as required

1.7 Prepare a suitable spreadsheet or plot where multiple use of the same frequency for different performers or segments is required

1.8 Document wireless audio equipment requirements prior to productions to ensure easy interpretation by others

1.9 Ensure availability of equipment and accessories according to production requirements

2. Set up wireless equipment

2.1 Establish suitable location for equipment and technician work area in consultation with relevant personnel

2.2 Run audio lines from wireless equipment to stage box or patch point and make connections according to plot

2.3 Run standby microphone cables as required, and have wired and wireless standby equipment on hand

2.4 Establish backup channels with appropriate personnel, and put in place other appropriate contingency management measures

3. Fit wireless audio equipment

3.1 Make appropriate checks on wireless audio equipment prior to fitting to ensure equipment is correctly labelled, in working order and fully charged

3.2 Check that frequency setting on microphones and transmitters is matched and complete appropriate tuning

3.3 Identify the most appropriate position for equipment based on performance and technical issues

3.4 Use appropriate attachment techniques to fit radio microphones and transmitter packs to performers

3.5 Follow appropriate protocols with performers during the fitting process

3.6 Clearly explain technical operation issues to performers

3.7 Check and adapt gain structure to meet production requirements

4. Monitor wireless audio equipment systems

4.1 Set wireless audio equipment so that signal is received by sound desks

4.2 Ask performers to test equipment to ensure it is working correctly, and then crosscheck

4.3 Monitor wireless systems throughout productions, identify problems promptly, and take appropriate action to rectify

5. Complete work operations

5.1 Retrieve wireless equipment from performers at performance end

5.2 Clean and arrange or store wireless equipment in readiness for the next user or performance

5.3 In consultation with relevant personnel, evaluate effectiveness of wireless operations and note areas for future improvement
