Design log landings and snig tracks

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 'Design log landings and snig tracks' 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. Plan landing and recovery requirements

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to designing log landings and snig tracks are identified and followed

1.2. Logging and topography details are obtained and assessed while applying environmental management considerations

1.3. Landing location and construction requirements are identified in line with the harvest plan and inspected to assess factors affecting harvesting operations

1.4. Timeframe for use of the site and likely weather conditions are identified

1.5. Log extraction methods and storage requirements for landings, roads, tracks, equipment placement, falling and recovery rates and delivery schedules are calculated and documented

1.6. Communication with others is established and maintained in line with OHS requirements

2. Design landing and snig tracks

2.1. Specific landing site, size and level are calculated to meet all requirements, minimise landing environmental damage and optimise construction time

2.2. Number and location of snig tracks are planned to optimise track clearing and construction time, log handling requirements and minimise environmental damage

2.3. Track and road entry points to landing are located in line with plan requirements, log handling procedures, vehicle and equipment access requirements, and turning and loading space requirements

2.4. Provision for equipment availability and access for construction are included in landing and track design

2.5. Restoration of land on completion of activity is planned

2.6. Landing design and track locations are documented in line with regulations

3. Coordinate landing and track development

3.1. Landing and snig track design and construction plan is clearly communicated to site personnel to enable preparation

3.2. Operational procedures for tracks and landings are planned with site personnel in line with the design plan

3.3. Construction of landing and tracks is monitored and unexpected ground, water, vegetation or other environmental conditions reviewed and design modified in line with new conditions

3.4. Technical assistance is provided to site personnel for the preparation of landing and tracks

3.5. Design and development process is recorded and reported to the appropriate personnel
