Manage seaworthiness of a vessel up to 80 metres

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.


Supervise weather tight and watertight integrity of vessel


Principal structural components of vessel are identified from vessel drawings to understand the function of these components in relation to conventional vessel design


Pumping and pipeline systems of vessel are investigated to establish survivability of vessel in case of flooding and damage control


Procedures for maintaining weather tight and watertight integrity of vessel are interpreted and implemented according to vessel safety management plan and regulations


Crew are instructed on requirements of plan and their responsibilities


Actions are instigated to confirm weather tight and watertight integrity of vessel at all times


Take action to meet changed sea and weather conditions


Weather forecasts and observations of sea and weather conditions are used to predict situations that may jeopardise vessel weather tight and watertight integrity


Effect of severe wind and rolling in associated sea conditions on vessel weather tight and watertight integrity is recognised


Effect of water on deck on vessel weather tight and watertight integrity is ascertained


Appropriate action is taken to maintain vessel weather tight and watertight integrity according to organisational procedures


Maintain records


Relevant documents and records are completed and maintained as required according to regulatory and organisational requirements


Relevant documents are sent to appropriate bodies and copies are filed according to regulatory and organisational requirements


Documents are stored according to regulatory and organisational requirements
