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

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.

Elements and Performance Criteria


Performance Criteria


Develop and extend teaching, facilitation and learning practices


Knowledge of teaching methodologies, facilitation approaches and learning theories is regularly updated to inform, guide and extend delivery and facilitation practices


This knowledge is synthesised with experiences in teaching and facilitation to support flexibility, innovation and adaptations in differing circumstances


Current vocational competency/subject matter expertise frames the content of teaching, facilitation and learning practices


Ethical standards underpin teaching, facilitation and learning practices


Own practice as a trainer/facilitator is continually evaluated and reflected upon to determine appropriateness of delivery methods

Collaborative facilitation models are used to broaden teaching, facilitation and learning skills and knowledge


Develop learner independence


Effective learning experiences are created using appropriate learning theories, principles and inclusive practices


Potential barriers to learning are acknowledged and addressed, where possible, through learner support and adjustment strategies


Communication and interpersonal skills are used effectively to motivate learners


Facilitation practices extend learners' repertoire of preferred learning styles and enhance learner readiness for new learning


Facilitation practices progressively transfer responsibility for learning in accordance with learners' readiness


Manage learning


Learner cues and feedback are observed and facilitation skills are reviewed, and revised where necessary, to maintain learning momentum


Activities to develop meta-cognition skills and generic skills are integrated into facilitation and learning practices


Sensitivity related to diversity of culture, learning styles, abilities and experience is modelled


Explanations of theoretical ideas and principles are linked to learners' existing knowledge and experience using comprehensible language


Reflect on teaching, facilitation and learning practices


Teaching, facilitation and learning practices are examined to explore, test and develop ideas and theories of learning, and the implications of this for ongoing development of trainer/facilitator competency
