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 MSATCM304A, 'Interpret basic binary phase diagrams'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Interpret basic binary phase diagrams' 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
1. Identify the microstructures from an equilibrium cooling phase diagram
1.1. Phase diagram for metal or alloy is obtained from internal or external sources
1.2. Identify number, composition, proportion and structural arrangement of phases in binary alloys.
1.3. Describe structural changes due to varying proportion of alloying elements and temperature.
1.4. Describe the phase changes and final microstructures of binary alloys cooled under equilibrium conditions from the melt or during heat treatment operations.
2. Identify the microstructures from a non equilibrium cooling phase diagram
2.1. Identify number, composition, proportion and structural arrangement of phases in binary alloys.
2.2. Describe structural changes due to varying proportion of alloying elements and temperature.
2.3. Describe the phase changes and final microstructures of binary alloys cooled under equilibrium conditions from the melt or during heat treatment operations.
3. Recognise characteristic microstructures of binary alloys
3.1. .Recognise characteristic structures of dendrites (homogeneous and cored) columnar and equiaxed grains.
3.2. Recognise characteristic structures resulting from eutectic, eutectoid and peritectic reactions.
3.3. Recognise characteristic structures resulting from solid state precipitation.
