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 MARH001, 'Plan and navigate a passage for a vessel up to 12 metres'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Plan and navigate a passage for a vessel up to 12 metres' 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.
Appropriate charts and publications are accessed and checked for currency
Destination is identified, and course and waypoints are plotted
Estimated time of arrival (ETA) at waypoints and final destination are calculated
Safe passage is plotted to comply with all navigational buoys, marks and beacons
Navigational hazards are identified to avoid dangers to vessel
Weather information is accessed to determine expected weather pattern for intended passage
Proposed course is modified as necessary, to meet expected weather conditions
Fuel consumption for passage, including a reserve, is calculated
Conduct a pre-departure check
Propulsion equipment and alarms are tested for serviceability and vessel hull is checked for seaworthiness
Navigation equipment and alarms are checked to ensure they are in proper working condition and set for the passage
Navigation equipment is checked for errors and allowances are made in planning the passage
Fuel is checked to ensure there is adequate fuel on board for intended passage
Safety equipment is checked for compliance with legislation
Communications equipment is checked to ensure it is in proper working condition
Anchoring and mooring equipment is checked to ensure it is adequate and in good condition
Vessel and equipment are secured for sea
Local authorities are advised of departure and passage plan
Vessel is steered and propulsion equipment is operated in a safe and controlled manner to complete pre-planned course
Pilotage techniques and navigational equipment are used to monitor vessel position and maintain vessel in safe waters at all times
Errors detected with navigational equipment are corrected to maintain planned passage
Navigational buoys, marks and beacons are identified and complied with
Situational awareness is maintained to avoid navigational hazards and to comply with regulations for prevention of collision at sea
Weather and sea conditions are monitored during passage and correct adjustments are made for changing conditions
Local authority is advised of completion of passage
Vessel is checked to ensure it is securely moored
Propulsion equipment is checked to ensure it is safely shut down and secured
Navigational equipment is switched off
