Prepare drill site

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. Plan and prepare for drill site preparation

1.1. Access, interpret and apply drill site preparation documentation and ensure the work activity is compliant

1.2. Obtain, read, interpret, clarify and confirm the drill site layout plan to confirm the location, size and configuration of the proposed drill site

1.3. Identify and address potential risks, hazards and environmental issues, and implement control measures

1.4. Select and wear personal protective equipment appropriate for the work activities

1.5. Establish communication system and protocols

1.6. Carry out plant and equipment pre-start checks

2. Create access to drill site

2.1. Identify existing tracks and use for entry to drill site

2.2. If necessary, create new tracks which minimises water flows and erosion by following the natural contours of the land

2.3. Create new tracks to drill site which minimise the clearing of vegetation by avoiding large trees and preserving root stocks

2.4. Raise blades to a minimum of 150mm when using machinery to prepare access blade

2.5. Cut or trim larger trees if unavoidable

2.6. Stockpile or windrow cleared vegetation for use during site rehabilitation

3. Prepare drill site

3.1. Clear drill site removing minimum vegetation

3.2. Seek permission from appropriate person to move hole location if vegetation significantly impedes access to the proposed drill site

3.3. Manually clear ground cover to prevent fire hazards to drill rig

3.4. Leave mature trees undisturbed

3.5. Build sumps and bunds on the downside of the hole collar location

4. Minimise impact of contaminated groundwater

4.1. Identify the possible presence of groundwater which may be a threat to vegetation during drilling operations

4.2. If groundwater is discovered, construct appropriate number of sumps to recommended configuration and distances from the drill rig location

4.3. Store topsoil removed from sump construction separately to facilitate more effective rehabilitation

5. Manage rare flora

5.1. Determine the presence and type of rare flora before clearing vegetation,

5.2. Seek advice on the action to be taken where rare flora are identified
