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 ICTCBL219, 'Apply safe technical work practices for cabling registration when configuring an ADSL circuit'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Apply safe technical work practices for cabling registration when configuring an ADSL circuit' 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. Build and test direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) circuits and telephone earthing
1.1 Identify any hazards and work health and safety (WHS) issues for safe worksite and notify appropriate personnel
1.2 Connect series and parallel DC and AC circuit configuration following safe work practices
1.3 Choose appropriate test equipment and measure values of electrical quantities of circuits
1.4 Use calculations to verify measured values of electrical quantities in series and in parallel circuit configuration
1.5 Compare measured values to calculated values and determine reasons for any variations
1.6 Evaluate results and determine probable faults if relevant
1.7 Measure voltages present on telephone line and compare to exchange battery voltage
1.8 Measure resistance to earth, ensuring electrical earth in telecommunications installation
2. Configure a safe ADSL circuit configuration with mode 3 connection
2.1 Determine effects of bandwidth, frequency and attenuation on DSL circuits
2.2 Design and configure ADSL circuit from network boundary through to mode 3 socket for alarm system connected to monitoring station
2.3 Configure connection to ensure that ADSL circuit is not disconnected for safety reasons when alarm activation in conjunction with a mode 3 socket disconnects plain old telephone service (POTS) circuit
2.4 Use level 3 tester to verify correct termination and installation of digital transmission line
3. Diagnose and rectify faults
3.1 Determine urgency and impact of faults and required response timeframe for clearance
3.2 Identify type of fault and determine most probable causes of fault from data and historical trends where available
3.3 Select tools and test equipment relevant to system and type of fault
3.4 Diagnose fault in methodical and safe manner using suitable fault-finding technique
3.5 Isolate fault progressively to remove likely variables from diagnostic
3.6 Determine options to rectify fault and present to client for decision on rectification
3.7 Document test methods and results, and file with other system installation records
4. Alter existing services
4.1 Identify existing and proposed cable systems for altering services to existing installation
4.2 Plan alterations to cause minimal disruption to ongoing client activity
4.3 Use appropriate tools to safely terminate telecommunications cables and outlets
4.4 Identify and rectify any cable fault
4.5 Carry out alterations in safe manner and according to both mandatory and recommended industry standards
4.6 Identify risks posed by contact with remote power feeding services
4.7 Test alteration and obtain sign off with client
