Achieve work outcomes

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

Reference books for 'Achieve work outcomes' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to 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 raw material components and their application in production.

1.1 Outline the properties of materials/components used in the production process.

1.2 Describe or construct a flow chart of the production process relevant to the area/plant.

1.3 Outline parts of the production process where extra care and attention are required.

1.4 Identify the safety and environmental requirements for relevant materials and processes.

2. Identify production targets in work area.

2.1 Identify production targets for work area and work roles taking account of OHS requirements.

2.2 Identify techniques used to measure production performance against workplace targets/standards.

3. Recognise key areas effecting production efficiencies.

3.1 Explain importance of reducing wastage of resources.

3.2 Identify potential sources of wastage/production inefficiencies.

3.3 Outline possible approaches to minimise wastage/ inefficiencies.

3.4 Demonstrate effective techniques to ensure wastage/ production minimisation within scope of job.

4. Implement actions to achieve production targets.

4.1 Identify the role of the individual and/or the team in achieving production targets.

4.2 Carry out required role to achieve production targets.

5. Participate in an improvement activity in accordance with organisation procedures.

5.1 Explain organisation procedures for identifying and suggesting improvements.

5.2 Explain the use of information in developing improvements related to work area.
