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 TDMMH1207B, 'PLAN AND NAVIGATE A SHORT VOYAGE WITHIN INSHORE LIMITS'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'PLAN AND NAVIGATE A SHORT VOYAGE WITHIN INSHORE LIMITS' 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
Use a navigational chart
Coastal navigational charts are correctly used to plan a safe route and identify coastal features, lights, buoyage and navigational hazards
The compass course to steer between two points is determined
Fix a small vessel's position
Ranges and bearings are matched with charted features, combined with depth soundings and plotted onto a chart
A position on a chart from derived GPS readings is plotted in accordance with established procedures
Obtain weather and tidal information
Weather forecast current for planned voyage is obtained from coast radio station, internet and media and interpreted in terms of the implications for the planned voyage
Local tide tables are used to determine times and heights of low and high tides.
Depth of water at locations on a coastal chart is estimated using charted depth and tidal information
Navigate a short inshore passage
Observations of sea and weather are appropriate and are applied during navigation of the vessel on the planned voyage
Navigational hazards are identified and avoided
Lights, buoyage and coastal features are used to pilot vessel throughout planned voyage
Vessel's position is fixed at appropriate times using methods appropriate to an inshore voyage
The course steered is regularly monitored to ensure safe passage
Alterations to course and speed are appropriate to prevailing circumstances and conditions and do not put at risk the safety of the vessel, passengers or crew.
Operational limits of vessel's propulsion, steering, power systems, trim and stability are not exceeded during navigational manoeuvres
