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 MSAPMOPS406A, 'Identify problems in electronic control systems'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Identify problems in electronic control systems' 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
Performance Criteria describe the required performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the Element. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the Evidence Guide.
1. Identify electrical/ electronic control system problems.
1.1 Categorise the types of machine malfunctions due to electrical/electronic faults.
1.2 Describe the effects on product quality of electrical/electronic problems.
1.3 Isolate possible faulty components from a circuit diagram and knowledge of the function of each component.
2. Implement appropriate corrective action.
2.1 Examine other possible faults.
2.2 Short list possible fault causes.
2.3 Conduct investigations of machine, products or data to determine most likely fault cause(s).
2.4 Take appropriate action to ensure fault is rectified.
2.5 Follow up on action to ensure completion in an appropriate time frame.
2.6 Recheck after corrective action to ensure fault has been rectified.
3. Identify maintenance requirements.
3.1 Check manufacturer instructions to determine recommended maintenance schedule.
3.2 Check fault and maintenance history to determine adequacy of current regime and special requirements.
3.3 Determine criticality of machine to production/business.
3.4 Develop maintenance schedule/requirements for machine.
3.5 Liaise with all relevant stakeholders to ensure schedule is appropriate.
3.6 Report outcome to appropriate personnel.
4. Identify electronic control system problems.
4.1 Categorise the types of machine malfunctions due to electronic control system faults.
4.2 Describe the effects on product quality of electronic control system problems.
4.3 Isolate possible faulty components from a circuit diagram and knowledge of the function of each component.
5. Implement appropriate corrective action.
5.1 Examine other possible faults.
5.2 Shortlist possible fault causes.
5.3 Conduct investigations of machine, products or data to determine most likely fault cause(s).
5.4 Take appropriate action to ensure fault is rectified.
5.5 Follow up on action to ensure completion in an appropriate time frame.
