Determine the properties of explosive ordnance

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. Plan for explosive ordnance testing

1.1 Type of explosive ordnance and required test or analysis are identified and confirmed in accordance with organisation policy and procedures

1.2 Nature and type of effects or properties to be determined are identified

1.3 Appropriate methods of measuring and recording the desired effects or properties are investigated and selected

1.4 Appropriate firing or initiation techniques and methods are investigated and selected

1.5 Work health and safety (WHS) principles and requirements are identified, incorporated in the plan and observed throughout the testing process

1.6 The test plan is prepared and reviewed

2. Prepare for explosive ordnance testing

2.1 Models, simulation and/or prototypes are tested and validated in accordance with established engineering principles

2.2 Modifications or alterations are incorporated into the testing processes based on validation results

2.3 Necessary equipment is either acquired or built given project constraints and available skills and materials

2.4 Experimental designs are developed in liaison with other staff and checked to ensure they meet WHS regulations and standards

2.5 Apparatus is assembled, set up and calibrated

2.6 Routine standardisation procedures are performed prior to the test, and results are recorded in accordance with engineering procedures

3. Perform explosive ordnance test

3.1 Instrumentation required for data collection is tested for functionality in accordance with test requirements

3.2 Explosive ordnance initiation or firing mechanisms are prepared and tested in accordance with Range Standing Orders and organisation policy

4. Recover equipment and validate results

4.1 Measurement and recording equipment are recovered and required data is extracted

4.2 Data is analysed for anomalies and 'out of control' conditions and either accepted or rejected

4.3 Data is assessed for validity against required information, known previous test results and/or relevant reference materials

4.4 Test procedures are recorded and, if necessary, modifications to test procedures are recommended
