Develop engineered timber products to meet energy efficient building design needs

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 design needs' 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



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. Explore commercial opportunities for engineered timber products

1.1 Review Building Codes of Australia (BCA) guidelines and standards relating to climate zones and energy efficiency measures.

1.2 Research and evaluate existing information to inform new product development.

1.3 Identify gaps in current range of engineered timber products for new products or concepts.

1.4 Complete a market analysis using appropriate information sources to determine design and production requirements.

1.5 Develop preliminary product concept in line with research findings.

1.6 Consult relevant stakeholders on broad parameters for developing product to meet market need.

2. Formulate design concept for products

2.1 Generate ideas for product style to complement design concepts and production requirements.

2.2 Use appropriate documentation methods to produce preliminary representation or prototyping of product.

2.3 Consult with stakeholders to review and critique design concepts.

2.4 Review design concepts to ensure energy efficiency is proven to allow project progression.

2.5 Develop business case for realising design including full cost benefit analysis.

2.6 Obtain required approvals to progress product development.

3. Develop the product to operational level

3.1 Develop and test product in line with design concepts.

3.2 Align product energy efficiency requirements to market analysis.

3.3 Implement certification and compliance processes for engineered product and production system.

3.4 Develop detailed implementation specifications and present to relevant stakeholders for approval and funding.

3.5 Select and organise production resources in line with design specifications.

3.6 Design quality assurance system in line with organisational procedures.

3.7 Develop and document safe operating procedures for production processes.
