Maintain a high level of fitness for performance

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 'Maintain a high level of fitness for performance' 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. Design an advanced exercise program

1.1 Discuss with relevant personnel the type of advanced exercise program best suited to own performance needs

1.2 Target each component of fitness with advanced applications of exercise modalities

1.3 Apply understanding of the lever and cam systems of exercise equipment when designing fitness programs

1.4 Monitor own posture to determine whether exercises are needed to modify postural irregularities

1.5 Apply the frequency, intensity, type and time (FITT) principle to planning advanced aerobic conditioning, flexibility, muscular strength, endurance and power programs

1.6 Incorporate into advanced exercise program aspects of somatic methods that match own performance requirements

1.7 Document advanced exercise program, building in strategies for ongoing review and amendment

2. Implement advanced exercise program

2.1 Perform warm-up and warm-down procedures in conjunction with exercise activities

2.2 Follow advanced exercise program under appropriate supervision

2.3 Use advanced applications of exercise modalities correctly according to manufacturer and instructor recommendations

2.4 Follow studio or gymnasium rules and protocols

2.5 Determine target exercise heart rates and regularly measure physiological responses to exercises

2.6 Amend exercise program to incorporate feedback and advice from relevant personnel as required

3. Evaluate advanced exercise program

3.1 Take account of a range of factors when evaluating whether the goals of an advanced exercise program are being achieved

3.2 Evaluate physiological changes that occur as a result of following an advanced exercise program

3.3 Note symptoms that indicate over-training and take account of them when revising advanced exercise program
