Perform mobile surveillance

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. Drive while performing covert surveillance duties

1.1 Surveillance vehicle is driven and manoeuvred safely in all locations and conditions in accordance with organisational requirements

1.2 Traffic conditions are monitored and acted upon to enable safe operation in accordance with organisational requirements

1.3 Safe and smooth driving is maintained while communicating with the surveillance team

1.4 Surveillance driving techniques are adapted to varying surveillance environments

1.5 Driving standards and manoeuvres that do not draw attention to the surveillance vehicle are employed

2. Employ vehicle surveillance techniques

2.1 Dress, appearance and props appropriate to the surveillance environment are chosen

2.2 Range of plausible cover stories appropriate to appearance and the surveillance environment are used to enhance effectiveness

2.3 Cover, distance and timing are used to minimise the risk of exposure and to maintain contact with the subject

2.4 Appropriate techniques are used to communicate covertly

2.5 Surveillance equipment carried is concealed or disguised to prevent compromise and exposure

2.6 Appropriate search techniques to relocate the subject are applied after losses

2.7 Surveillance vehicle is driven, parked or positioned to maintain contact with the subject while minimising the risk of compromise

2.8 Operatives are concealed within vehicles to minimise the risk of compromise

3. Make effective covert transitions

3.1 Static positions are strategically chosen to optimise coverage of the subject during transitions

3.2 Vehicle surveillance is performed to effectively support foot surveillance

3.3 Transitions between vehicle and foot surveillance are performed in a timely manner

3.4 Vehicle positions are chosen to allow for covert recovery of members performing foot surveillance

4. Gather intelligence and evidence

4.1 Surveillance techniques are employed to collect intelligence and evidence covertly during vehicle surveillance

4.2 Intelligence and evidence is gathered and maintained in accordance with organisational policies and procedures
