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.

Elements and Performance Criteria
Set up an ECDIS
ECDIS is initialised and programmed with own vessel data
Operational performance and accuracy of ECDIS is confirmed
Settings and values are adjusted to suit conditions for passage planning and navigation
Means of providing additional information is correctly interfaced with ECDIS
Use an ECDIS for passage planning and navigation
ECDIS is used to assist in passage planning and the conduct of navigation
Information on ECDIS is monitored to ensure safe navigation
Information obtained from ECDIS is interpreted and analysed taking into account limitations of equipment, all connected sensors and prevailing circumstances and conditions
Position of vessel is confirmed by alternative means
Safety of navigation is maintained through adjustments made to vessel course and speed
System and position alarms are responded to, to maintain safety of navigation
Situational awareness is maintained while using ECDIS
Data produced by ECDIS that should be retained to conform with organisational procedures and regulatory requirements is identified
Data is stored electronically or in hard copy as required by organisational procedures and regulatory requirements
Security and access requirements for data are adhered to in accordance with organisational procedures
