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 TAEDES501, 'Design and develop learning strategies'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Design and develop learning strategies' 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
Elements describe the essential outcomes.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.
1. Determine the parameters of the learning strategy
1.1 Clarify the purpose of the learning strategy, likely target groups and their learning needs
1.2 Research qualification or other benchmark options for meeting the likely target group needs and select an appropriate option
1.3 Consult with relevant people to confirm the parameters of the learning strategy
2. Develop the framework for the learning strategy
2.1 Develop a learning strategy design that reflects the requirements of the selected qualification or other benchmark
2.2 Analyse industry or organisation documentation to determine additional and supporting requirements
2.3 Research and analyse options for design, based on likely target groups, their learning needs and contexts for delivery
2.4 Use appropriate learning theories and instructional design principles to support the learning strategy design
2.5 Identify and document learning outcomes
2.6 Consult to modify and confirm the framework
2.7 Develop the review process for the learning strategy
3. Devise the content and structure of the learning strategy
3.1 Construct content headings from learning outcomes to form an overview of content to be addressed
3.2 Sequence the content to support learning and determine overall timelines within operating constraints
3.3 Express learning strategy outcomes to reflect both generic and specific learning outcomes to be achieved
3.4 Identify and document appropriate delivery and assessment strategies, taking account of the learning parameters, design framework and learning context
3.5 Identify and document operational requirements
4. Review the learning strategy
4.1 Review the learning strategy in collaboration with relevant people against specified criteria prior to and post implementation
4.2 Document a post-implementation review process that includes measures for identifying the effectiveness and quality of the learning strategy
4.3 Make recommendations based on outcomes of the review processes, where appropriate, and document these
4.4 Make modifications and document as part of a continuous improvement strategy
