Develop planning strategies for building environment design

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


Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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

1. Evaluate building environment requirements

1.1 Utilise network equipment deployment plans to convert network equipment specifications into building requirements data

1.2 Determine planned and forecast network equipment deployment locations and quantities to prioritise tasks

1.3 Formulate justification to proceed by analysing business requirements and benefits to the business

1.4 Analyse current building capacities or capabilities against planned deployment data to determine building environment shortfalls or additional needs

1.5 Determine minimum needs required to address identified building services shortfalls, upgrades or changes

1.6 Identify relevant standards, business and regulatory requirements that are essential for building plan compliance

2. Scope building design requirements

2.1 Quantify building requirements from known needs to determine if any standard deliverables can be used

2.2 Assess if requirements can be met using new or alternative solutions

2.3 Provide estimated costs and schedule to determine a planning solution

2.4 Prepare a scoping document and supporting documentation with recommendations that complies with deployment standards and regulatory requirements

3. Produce project brief

3.1 Prepare a project scope in required briefing format to present to the design section

3.2 Plan project delivery to meet any business timing and funding constraints

3.3 Produce building planning specifications with approvals and present to the building design section to be used for detailed design or construction specifications
