Weld plastics materials

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 'Weld plastics materials' 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 required materials and equipment.

1.1 Identify work requirements from production plan or request.

1.2 Identify quantity and quality of product required and any special requirements, including welding specifications.

1.3 Interpret plans, patterns, designs or product specifications.

1.4 Recognise hazards and steps required to ensure safety.

1.5 Plan sequence of welding operations for the whole process to ensure work follows a logical procedure.

1.6 Recognise requirements which may not be in accordance with usual practice.

1.7 Ask questions of appropriate person to confirm unusual practice.

1.8 Examine process requirements to identify suitability of plastics materials for manual welding operations.

2. Set up equipment and materials.

2.1 Set up tools and equipment ready for production.

2.2 Locate materials, patterns and consumables.

2.3 Ensure safety equipment is available and fit for use.

2.4 Identify non-conformances and take required action.

3. Weld to specification

3.1 Assemble components using clamps and jigs as required.

3.2 Organise materials and equipment prior to welding.

3.3 Weld materials to specification.

3.4 Collect and segregate scrap, trim and other materials as required.

3.5 Complete logs and records as required.
