Implement and manage technical risk management

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



1. Determine risks

1.1 Technical risks are identified, documented and analyse, in consultation with stakeholders and a higher technical/engineering authority, as a basis for risk planning.

1.2 Within delegated technical/engineering authority, established risk management techniques and tools are used to analyse risks and assess options, and preferred risk approaches are recommended to a higher technical/engineering authority.

1.3 Plans are developed, agreed with stakeholders, and communicated to ensure clarity of understanding and ongoing management of technical risk factors.

1.4 Designated risk management processes and procedures are established to enable effective management and communication of risk events, responses and results.

2. Monitor and control risk

2.1 Activities are managed in accordance with the organisation’s Engineering Management Plan to ensure a common approach to the achievement of objectives.

2.2 Progress is monitored against the organisation’s Engineering Management Plan and Risk Management Plan to identify variances and recommended responses to a higher technical authority for remedial action.

2.3 Agreed risk responses are implemented and plans are modified to reflect changing project objectives in an environment of uncertainty.

3. Assess risk management outcomes

3.1 Outcomes of technical/engineering risk management activities are reviewed to determine effectiveness of risk management processes and procedures.

3.2 Risk issues and recommended improvements are identified, documented and passed on to a higher authority for application.
