Maintain sawdoctoring tools

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

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1. Prepare for maintenance

1.1 Review work order and where required check with appropriate personnel.

1.2 Select appropriate repair, maintenance and personal protective equipment and check for operational effectiveness.

1.3 Remove sawdoctoring tools for reconditioning from designated machinery.

1.4 Plan maintenance process in line with work order.

2. Recondition straight edge

2.1 Follow organisational safety procedures and manufacturer’s recommendations throughout all repair and maintenance processes.

2.2 Assess straight edge damage and wear select appropriate reconditioning method.

2.3 Determine correct work angle for re-surfacing or removal of wear.

2.4 Clamp straight edge at correct angle to prevent movement, vibration and slippage during the re-surfacing process.

2.5 Inspect abrasive wheel or cutting tool, clean or change as required to suit work material removal, tolerance and surface texture requirements.

2.6 Grind, machine or file straight edge to remove distortions and maintain edge straightness and flatness without overheating or causing distortion,

2.7 Remove all signs of wear or damage from reference surfaces.

2.8 Clean straight edge and debur edges.

2.9 Dispose of distorted sawdoctoring tools in line with environmental protection practices.

3. Recondition tension gauge

3.1 Select grinder or other appropriate enterprise method for reconditioning tension gauges in line with organisational procedures.

3.2 Set grinder to produce required radius or circle diameter for the tension gauge.

3.3 Position tension gauge and clamp in grinder securely, ensuring cord height is central to gauge length and arc is ground square to plane of the gauge body.

3.4 Inspect grinding wheel, and dress and change to suit work, material and required tolerance.

3.5 Grind gauge to required accuracy and profile until all visible edge and face wear is removed.

3.6 Select and monitor grinding speed and feed rates to avoid overheating, distortion and burn marks.

3.7 Dispose of tension gauges distorted during the process in line with environmental protection practices.

3.8 Record and report processing problems and equipment faults to appropriate personnel.
