Conduct indicator muscle monitoring

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 define the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Prepare self and client for muscle monitoring

1.1 Provide accurate information to client about scope of muscle monitoring and the relationship between tester and the person being tested

1.2 Establish client willingness from indicator muscle response, plus written and verbal consent

1.3 Complete checks on own readiness according to modality procedure

2. Establish indicator muscle

2.1 Place chosen indicator muscle into correct starting position and apply stabilisation that supports both client and practitioner

2.2 Demonstrate to client the direction in which pressure will be applied and the muscle’s range of motion

2.3 Use clear verbal cues to ensure the client is ready for monitoring

2.4 Apply gentle progressive pressure appropriate to the muscle being monitored and the client's ability to respond

2.5 Use techniques that avoid muscle fatigue when specific muscle is subject to ongoing monitoring

2.6 Recognise muscle facilitation and inhibition and the relationship to different aspects of the prime mover

2.7 Use a level of pressure that allows for the indicator muscle response to be recognised, making judgments about rate and speed based on client responses and own experience

2.8 Request and observe feedback from the client regarding level of comfort

2.9 Modify monitoring method in light of client's feedback.

3. Apply muscle monitoring pre-checks

3.1 Identify and balance the muscle's ability to lock and unlock according to modality procedure

3.2 Identify and balance neurological disorganisation according to modality procedure

3.3 Check and balance energy function of central meridian for normal flow according to modality procedure

3.4 Check and balance hydration according to modality procedure

3.5 Check and balance ionisation according to modality procedure

3.6 Select and follow procedures for other modality specific pre-checks
