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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver DEFIN013A, 'Perform static surveillance'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Perform static surveillance' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
1. Identify suitable covert observation points
1.1 Surveillance techniques are applied to lessen the risk of compromise during reconnaissance of locations
1.2 Static positions are strategically chosen to optimise coverage of the subject
1.3 Observation points are selected to minimise the chance of exposure or compromise
1.4 Alternative observations points are identified to accommodate a range of contingencies
2. Employ static surveillance
2.1 Static surveillance techniques are employed to ensure operational security and safety
2.2 Range of plausible cover stories appropriate to appearance and the surveillance environment is used to enhance effectiveness
2.3 Appropriate techniques are used to communicate covertly
2.4 Surveillance equipment is concealed or disguised to prevent exposure or compromise
2.5 Situational awareness is displayed when entering/exiting static surveillance posts to minimise risks of compromise
2.6 Operative safety is monitored and assessed in accordance with organisational policies and procedures
3. Gather intelligence and evidence
3.1 Surveillance techniques are employed to collect intelligence covertly during static surveillance
3.2 Intelligence is gathered and maintained in accordance with organisational policies and procedures
