Survey vessel operational systems

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 survey requirements


Relevant standards for vessel equipment and operational systems are identified, accessed and incorporated into survey plan as required


Survey scope and depth is confirmed against relevant standards and organisational requirements


Operational limits, certificate of operations and previous certificates of survey are reviewed for special conditions or equivalent solutions


Equipment and operational system requirements for survey and range of variations are accurately identified, selected and tested for serviceability


Prepare for survey


Operational systems to be surveyed for type, size and nature of vessel operations are accurately identified, reviewed and incorporated into survey plan


Relationships between different operational systems are accurately interpreted and items to be surveyed are noted in survey plan


Maintenance records are obtained and reviewed to confirm survey scope


Conduct periodic survey of operational systems


Survey of operational systems is carried out according to regulatory requirements


Primary and secondary operational systems and their components are surveyed according to survey schedule


Changes to operational equipment or equivalent solutions are identified and examined for fitness both in or out of water as required by survey schedule


Report and act on non-compliance


Non-compliance is detected, recorded and reported according to regulatory and organisational requirements


Risk arising from non-compliance is detected, reported and communicated to relevant personnel


Relevant provisions of legislation appropriate to level of risk detected are identified and followed


Appropriate reports and documentation related to survey are developed and managed according to regulatory and organisational requirements
