Develop engineered timber products to meet energy efficient building

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

Reference books for 'Develop engineered timber products to meet energy efficient building' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Explore commercial opportunities for engineered timber products

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to developing engineered timber products to meet energy efficient building design needs are identified and followed

1.2. Building Codes of Australia (BCA) guidelines and standards relating to climate zones and energy efficiency measures are reviewed

1.3. Existing information that informs new product development is researched and evaluated

1.4. Gaps in current range of engineered timber products are identified and used as a catalyst for generating new products or concepts

1.5. Market analysis is undertaken using appropriate information sources to determine design and production requirements

1.6. Preliminary ideas on product/s are developed

1.7. Consultation with relevant stakeholders is undertaken to agree on broad parameters for developing product/s to meet market needs

2. Formulate and test design concept for product/s

2.1. Ideas/styles that complement design and production requirements are conceived and developed

2.2. Design concepts are communicated using appropriate documentation methods to produce preliminary representation of the product/s

2.3. Design concepts are critiqued and reviewed with stakeholders

2.4. Design concepts are reviewed to ensure energy efficiency is proven to sufficient level to progress project

2.5. Business case that includes a full cost benefit analysis and an appropriate risk assessment is undertaken

2.6. Approval is sought for the project from all relevant stakeholders

3. Develop the product

3.1. Product development is undertaken in line with design and production requirements

3.2. Product development outcomes and energy efficiency are reviewed and aligned with market analysis and organisational priorities

3.3. Certification processes and compliance of the engineered product and production system are initiated and/or achieved

3.4. Detailed implementation specifications are developed and presented to relevant stakeholders for approval and funding

4. Develop product concept to an operational level

4.1. Organisational procedures for product development and marketing product are followed

4.2. Production resources are selected and organised in line with design and production requirements

4.3. Quality assurance system is designed
