Apply vessel construction theory to marine survey tasks

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

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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


Identify major parts of a hull relevant to commercial vessel inspections and surveys


Appropriate nomenclature is used to identify major parts of hull to be inspected as part of commercial vessel marine survey


Structure of vessel hull in plan-view, profile, cross-section and perspective are accurately analysed across a range of different plans and drawings of vessels to determine survey requirements


Use of plans and drawings in the survey are identified and applied during survey plan development


Identify commercial vessel types and their structure


Basic factors determining design of commercial vessels are outlined


Features of vessel designed to ensure its watertight and weather tight integrity are identified and maintained


Survey or inspection plan relating to vessel design is identified and implemented


Vessel construction methods and materials are identified and used as the basis to determine inspection and survey tasks


Interpret basic vessel stability criteria


Basic stability theory as outlined in the National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) in relation to construction of a commercial vessel is accurately defined and basic stability calculations are performed


Purpose of a vessel stability assessment is correctly explained


Documentation and records required by surveyor to assess stability of vessel are identified and confirmed according to the NSCV


Apply vessel construction theory to survey


Different types of vessel materials are identified to determine scope of survey


Survey plan appropriate to type of vessel is developed according to survey requirements and discussed with surveyor


Feedback on survey plan is sought from others and possible changes or improvements are clarified where required and incorporated
