Develop ionising radiation safety plans

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. Prepare for the development of ionising radiation safety plans

1.1 Ionising radiation sources are identified and confirmed in accordance with organisational policy and procedures.

1.2 Standards and legislation appropriate to ionising radiation exposure levels are identified and accessed

1.3 Existing organisational records relevant to ionising radiation are identified and accessed

1.4 Equipment and resources required for the measurement of ionising radiation are identified, acquired and prepared.

2. Measure ionising radiation

2.1 Measuring equipment is deployed and readings are recorded.

2.2 Work health and safety (WHS) requirements are applied throughout the operation

3. Analyse ionising radiation

3.1 Measurements are interpreted and confirmed in accordance with measuring protocols

3.2 Ionising radiation is analysed/determined and findings are reported to appropriate authorities/superiors.

4. Develop ionising radiation safety plans

4.1 Appropriate consultation with stakeholders is conducted.

4.2 Technical standards, organisational environmental requirements and ionising radiation exposure levels are identified and interpreted

4.3 Ionising radiation safety plans are developed.

4.4 Ionising radiation safety plans are forwarded.

5. Record and interpret data from personal monitors

5.1 Full exposure data from personal monitors is clearly recorded.

5.2 Individual records are made available to the radiation worker.

5.3 Appropriate action is initiated whenever anomalous records are obtained.

5.4 Personal monitoring records are reviewed regularly and recommendations for changes in workplace procedures are recommended as appropriate.
