Verify inspector's class reference standards

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



1. Receive and schedule inspector's class reference standards for calibration

1.1. Identify the level of verification required by the client

1.2. Evaluate and implement appropriate strategies where the standard's suitability for purpose does not meet client expectations

1.3. Enter details for the inspector's class reference standard into the organisation's information management system and apply appropriate tracking mechanisms

1.4. Process 'urgent' calibration requests according to the organisation's policy and procedures

1.5. Maintain confidentiality of all client and organisation data and information

1.6. Ensure that information provided to clients is accurate, relevant and authorised for release

1.7. Deal with customers politely, efficiently and in accordance with organisational policy and procedures

2. Prepare for calibration

2.1. Identify and access the appropriate procedure for the calibration in accordance with organisational policy and procedures

2.2. Identify possible sources of measurement error during calibration and implement appropriate control strategies

2.3. Condition inspector's class reference standards and high order reference standards in accordance with calibration and organisational procedures where applicable

2.4. Identify hazards and use the specified personal protective equipment, safety equipment and procedures

2.5. Evaluate the suitability of high order reference standards and measuring equipment selected for the calibration against the organisation's specification requirements and calibration procedure

2.6. Document calibration status, report out-of-calibration test equipment/high order reference standards and quarantine where required

3. Perform calibration

3.1. Assess the design and appearance of an inspector's class reference standard against prescribed stadards

3.2. Perform calibration without variance according to the documented procedure to ensure repeatability of measurement

3.3. Confirm readings are the result of a valid measurement and record data as required

3.4. Adjust inspector's class reference standard if applicable

4. Analyse and report calibration results

4.1. Estimate and document uncertainty of measurement in accordance with organisation's policy and procedures, if required

4.2. Identify prescribed performance criteria for the inspector's class reference standard and evaluate against calibration results

4.3. Analyse calibration results to confirm they are within the maximum permissible variation and uncertainty for the scope of calibration

4.4. Analyse any variances from the performance criteria to identify isolated or systemic problems with the inspector's class reference standards or calibration procedure

4.5. Record the results of each test/calibration accurately, unambiguously and objectively

5. Finalise calibration

5.1. Attach calibration labels, equipment stickers, quality control tags and tamper resistant seals as required by the organisation's procedures

5.2. Prepare and submit to the laboratory supervisor a final report on the calibration detailing procedure, traceability, results and all other required information

5.3. Store test equipment/high order reference standards and calibration records in accordance with organisational policy and procedures

5.4. Identify and report unserviceable equipment or high order reference standards to the laboratory supervisor

5.5. Clean equipment and high order reference standards in accordance with organisational policy and procedures
