Provide kinesiology balances

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

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements define the essential outcomes

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

1. Prepare the client for kinesiology balance

1.1 Provide clear information about muscle monitoring and balancing and confirm understanding

1.2 Explain factors which may interfere with the effectiveness of the balance

1.3 Inform the client of potential reactions during and following a session and the appropriate course of action to take

1.4 Explain to the client how the balancing process supports innate healing capacities and the role of the kinesiologist as the facilitator for that process

2. Identify priority issue through kinesiological enquiry

2.1 Identify priority issue based on client’s expectations, review of data from assessment and the client treatment plan

2.2 Respond to client enquiries using language the client understands

2.3 Muscle monitor to confirm client's willingness and capacity for healing on the priority issue

2.4 Identify and record imbalances according to modality procedures and the client treatment plan

2.5 Identify and evaluate need for singular or multiple sessions based on outcomes of enquiry and client feedback

3. Apply balancing techniques through muscle monitoring

3.1 Identify balancing options and select relevant muscles using established modality protocols based on kinesiology enquiry and assessment indications

3.2 Use the condition and response of the client as a continual feedback to the initial assessment

3.3 Maintain client-focused attention throughout the session

3.4 Use appropriate correction techniques as indicated by muscle monitoring responses

3.5 Explain corrections and/or activities performed during the session to the client

4. Monitor and record progress of balancing

4.1 Monitor and evaluate effectiveness of all corrections

4.2 Recognise reactions to treatment and respond promptly if necessary

4.3 Continue applying corrections until the muscle monitoring process indicates that the balance is complete for this session or the agreed amount of time has passed/elapsed

4.4 Record client awareness relevant to issue on assessment record

4.5Compare baseline assessment and evaluate effectiveness of balance

5. Finalise the session

5.1 Educate client in relevant and practical techniques that support the balance

5.2 Answer client queries with clarity using appropriate language

5.3 Use honesty and integrity when explaining recommendations to the client
