Promote functional movement capacity

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 'Promote functional movement capacity' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Consolidate understanding of functional movement.

1.1 Source and access information on functional movement relevant to fitness outcomes in line with accepted movement and exercise technique standards.

1.2 Use knowledge of functional movement in day-to-day professional practice.

1.3 Discuss/explain how understanding of functional movement contributes to safe/optimum technique and skill development.

1.4 Use a wide range of functional movement terminology relevant to injury prevention and fitness outcomes.

2. Inform clients of importance of functional movement.

2.1 Review pre-exercise health screening, risk stratification, and health assessment procedures as required.

2.2 Discuss client health-related goals and acquire additional client information as required.

2.3 Refer client to a medical or allied health professional as required.

2.4 Discuss importance of identifying postural variances and explain relationship between posture and injury prevention to clients.

2.5 Provide information about common causes of poor posture and movement capacity to client.

2.6 Inform clients of legal and ethical limitations of a personal trainer.

3. Recognise and analyse client functional movement.

3.1 Provide clear and accurate instruction and demonstration during relevant movements and exercises.

3.2 Explain the importance of functional movement and correct technique and dynamic posture during exercise.

3.3 Observe functional movement, range of movement and exercise capacity to identify any joint mobility or movement restrictions.

3.4 Observe strength and muscle activation outputs to identify any muscle activation concerns and/or strength limitation or imbalance.

3.5 Observe and record any client balance, stability or coordination limitations.

3.6 Monitor participation and performance to identify ineffective movement patterns and exercise technique.

3.7 Determine need for further evaluation and seek guidance from an appropriate allied health professional as required.

3.8 Document observations and discuss with client.

4. Consider static posture.

4.1 Apply understanding of postural mechanisms and symptoms of poor posture to client observation and consultation.

4.2 Observe client static posture and identify issues that may be relevant in a dynamic setting.

4.3 Identify and document joints, muscles and connective tissues that would benefit from functional exercise strategies.

4.4 Seek guidance from an appropriate allied health professional as required.

5. Implement functional exercise strategies.

5.1 Develop strategies to promote functional movement, exercise performance and reduce likelihood of injury.

5.2 Advise client of exercises or activities that are contraindicated or may further exacerbate any postural variance.

5.3 Modify client exercise technique and dynamic posture as required.

5.4 Seek guidance from an appropriate allied health professional as required.
