Assess product feasibility of designs

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. Analyse design objectives

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to assessing product feasibility of designs are identified and followed

1.2. Designpurpose is assessed and the potential market for the product investigated

1.3. Intended production materials and production processes are analysed as the basis for development

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

2. Set the design assessment criteria

2.1. Criteria for the assessment of production material options are established

2.2. Criteria for the assessment of product functionality are established

2.3. Criteria for the assessment of production process options are established and impact of these on overall business operations assessed

2.4. Criteria for the assessment of safety and potential liability issues are established

2.5. Criteria for assessment of costs and marketability are established

3. Apply the assessment criteria

3.1. Resources including human, material, equipment and systems are allocated to particular design grading criteria processes

3.2. Products which are competitors or potential competitors in the market place are selected for comparative purposes

3.3. Design is scored and graded against agreed criteria and results recorded

3.4. Competition products are scored and graded against agreed criteria and results recorded

3.5. Assessment results are completed in line with the agreed process

4. Establish feasibility and options

4.1. Assessment results of the design and competition products are analysed

4.2. Designs which fail to satisfy assessment and provide no optional potential are rejected

4.3. Designs which fail to satisfy assessment and have optional or alternative potential are referred to appropriatepersonnel

4.4. Designs which satisfy potential are conditionally endorsed and conditions recorded and passed to the appropriate personnel
