Test mechanical signalling equipment and isolate faults

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

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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


Prepare to test and/or isolate equipment


Testing is appropriately sequenced in accordance with job schedule


Hazards are identified, risks are assessed and control measures are implemented


Appropriate personnel are consulted to ensure work is coordinated effectively with others involved on the worksite


Location of equipment to be tested/isolated is determined from job specifications and diagrams


Tools, equipment and testing devices needed to test and/or isolate are obtained in accordance with established procedures and are checked for correct operation and safety


Test and/or isolate equipment


Initial visual check of operational equipment is performed to identify equipment faults


Equipment is isolated in accordance with relevant operational rules and procedures


Established methods for dealing with unexpected situations are discussed with appropriate personnel and documented


Unexpected situations are dealt with safely and with the approval of an authorised person


Check equipment operation


Approval to conduct a check of equipment operation is obtained in accordance with relevant operational rules and procedures


Authorised equipment check is carried out to identify equipment faults in accordance with operating procedures


Operational effectiveness of equipment is confirmed through observation during train movements as required


Equipment faults are correctly identified and recorded, and appropriate corrective action is taken


Service equipment is locked and secured to prevent unauthorised access


Work completion is documented and appropriate personnel are notified in accordance with established procedures


Finalise testing and/or isolation of equipment


Test results are documented in accordance with organisation requirements
