Use advanced optical test equipment

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 ICTOPN402, 'Use advanced optical test equipment'.
Google Links

Books
Reference books for 'Use advanced optical test equipment' 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

Element

Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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

1. Prepare to use advanced optical measuring instruments

1.1 Obtain relevant legislation, codes, regulations and standards for compliance when conducting work

1.2 Notify customer for site access, security arrangements and location details of optical system and test purpose

1.3 Identify site hazards and notify appropriate personnel to make site safe

1.4 Devise and implement risk control measures of hazards with handling of optical fibres and lasers in consultation with appropriate personnel

1.5 Prepare a testing plan indicating the type of measurement, procedures and nominated wavelength, and seek approval from customer

1.6 Select appropriate tools and test instruments according to required measurement and enterprise practice

2. Evaluate optical performance and link budget using advanced optical test equipment

2.1 Set up test instrument according to manufacturer’s instructions and work health and safety (WHS) and environmental requirements

2.2 Perform measurement using knowledge of appropriate testing techniques and advanced test equipment in a safe manner to evaluate performance of optical system and component

2.3 Record test results and compare with standard test specifications from manufacturer’s and enterprise guidelines

2.4 Perform end-to-end measurements on an optical link to a customer and record test results and test points

2.5 Calculate optical losses for a link budget figure of an optical link to determine if within operational margins as specified in manufacturer’s manual

2.6 Evaluate test results and report on functionality of the optical component or equipment and performance of the optical link

3. Document measurement results

3.1 Document test results for future reference and make recommendations on optimising component and system performance

3.2 Clean worksite and make safe according to enterprise requirements and to customer satisfaction

3.3 Notify appropriate personnel of job completion for sign off and present test documentations
