Replace stellite tips

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

2.4. Saw and tip surfaces are cleaned to provide a good contact surface for brazing or silver soldering

3. Replace tips

3.1. Saw is set up in welding jig in line with manufacturer's instructions

3.2. Brazing material and technique is selected suitable for the material, application and the control of heat

3.3. Replacement tip is selected to meet application specifications and welded into position with tolerances checked

3.4. Trial weld of one tip is conducted and adjusted where necessary, to confirm weld pressure, current temperature and anneal settings against specifications

3.5. Trial weld is included in replacement process or where sub-standard, material is segregated and disposed of in line with site procedures and environmental requirements

3.6. Manual or automatic feeds are set in line with the number of tips to be welded

3.7. Tip replacement is carried out regularly, checking and adjusting annealing process temperatures and current to ensure staying within the specified range
