Operate electrical stimulator

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. Conduct pre-operational check of stimulationequipment

1.1. Electrical stimulation unit is regularly checked to ensure it is in good working order.

1.2. Equipment is maintained by cleaning electrodes (where applicable).

1.3. Circuit boards or cards are replaced if a fault develops (where this forms part of operator's work instructions).

2. Follow effective electrical stimulation procedures

2.1. Electrical stimulation is applied within the required time after stunning.

2.2. Constant contact with electrodes is ensured during stimulation.

2.3. Occupatioanl Health and Safety (OH&S) requirements are identified and met.

2.4. Stimulation is run to its full time according to the workplace or manufacturer's specifications for the type of stimulation equipment.

2.5. When using the nasal or rail methods, the carcase contact with the rubbing bar is maintained during electrical stimulation to ensure stimulation is effective.

2.6. Loss of voltage is prevented by keeping carcases separated during stimulation.

2.7. Peak voltage levels are checked and maintained to ensure effective stimulation.

2.8. Carcase is stimulated in accordance with workplace requirements.

3. Check for ineffective stimulation

3.1. Electrical stimulation unit is checked regularly to ensure that current is maintained to specified level, stimulation is applied within specified time limits after stunning, and duration of stimulation meets workplace requirements.

3.2. Electrodes are checked to ensure they are attached during stimulation.
