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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver ICPPRP494, 'Develop document content and structure'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Develop document content and structure' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com 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.
1 Identify document requirements
1.1 Content meaning and information structure are developed based on document intent, final media and intended audiences
1.2 Information is identified and grouped according to the job brief
1.3 Target audience requirements and expectations are determined according to the brief
2 Plan content structure
2.1 Information is arranged in related topics and logical sequence
2.2 Content meaning is tested by simulating generation of new coherent documents based on the original content
2.3 A hierarchy of information is developed with data
3 Develop information architecture
3.1 An information hierarchy is prepared, catering for physical storage of files
3.2 Search and retrieval mechanisms are prepared for content discovery
3.3 Information hierarchy is designed, catering for navigation and access between files or groups of content
4 Develop navigation system
4.1 High level, local and document navigational systems are built based on information architecture
4.2 Design is consistent, intuitive and with a logical labelling system to provide access to various levels and type of content
4.3 Labels and indexes are clear, consistent, coherent and relatively intuitive to enable target audience access
5 Design information layout
5.1 Templates for textual and graphic elements are developed to facilitate consistent and uniform layout and visual design (technology)
5.2 An extensible template is linked to the document (technology)
6 Test document
6.1 Suite of prototypes for all document levels is developed
6.2 Rigour of information architecture at all levels is tested
6.3 Correct functioning and intuitive use of navigational features are tested for all levels
6.4 Visual design and layout are tested at all levels against standard onscreen design principles
6.5 Levels of accessibility
