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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver SISFFIT419A, 'Apply exercise science principles to planning exercise'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Apply exercise science principles to planning exercise' 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
1. Apply a knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy to exercise planning, programming, and instruction
1.1. Apply knowledge of skeletal anatomy to exercise planning, programming and instruction.
1.2. Apply knowledge of the integrated monitoring and control of skeletal muscle contraction by the nervous system to exercise planning, programming and instruction.
1.3. Apply knowledge of the structure, range of motion and function of muscles, muscle groups and directional terms to exercise planning, programming and instruction.
2. Apply related concepts and principles of mechanics to exercise
2.1. Analyse and apply the forces acting on the body during exercise and basic mechanical concepts to exercise.
2.2. Apply concepts and principles of mechanics to exercise.
2.3. Use the common terms used to qualify the basic principles of biomechanics when instructing fitness activities.
2.4. Identify and explain the basic lever systems in both anatomical and mechanical lever systems to clients.
2.5. Use the lever systems in the human body and their role in movement and stability to provide safe and effective exercises for clients.
2.6. Take into account the use of levers and cams in resistance equipment to alter the force required by muscles and affect joint stability when developing programs and instructing fitness activities.
2.7. Take into account the effect of changes in lever length on muscle force output in both anatomical and mechanical lever when instructing fitness activities.
3. Apply related concepts of physiology to exercise
3.1. Apply knowledge of the structure and function of the cardio vascular system to exercise.

3.3. Apply knowledge of the physiological responses of the human body to a single bout of physical activity to exercise.
3.4. Apply knowledge of the physiological adaptations and weight bearing of the human body to regular exercise to exercise planning, programming and instruction.
3.5. Apply knowledge of the physiological responses to physical activity in various environmental conditions to exercise planning, programming and instruction.
