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 TLID1001, 'Shift materials safely using manual handling methods'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Shift materials safely using manual handling methods' 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.
Assess risks associated with relocating load
Products, goods or materials to be relocated are identified and assessed to determine appropriate relocation method
Storage locations are determined and potential routes to be followed are identified
Effect of load relocation on original load base is predicted
Points of balance are estimated
Required clearances are compared to available space and adjustments are made to moving loads to reflect required clearance
Effects of moving contents, which may be loose, liquid, dangerous or hazardous, are considered
Risks in potential routes are considered
Risks to self are identified arising from the required lifting, load carrying, set down or movement of the goods
Manual handling procedures for lifting, lowering and carrying, pushing and pulling are identified
Team lifting processes are considered when moving loads
Appropriate personal protective equipment is determined
Size to weight ratio of items to be manually handled are identified
Plan load relocation
Relocation of the load is planned, consistent with the code of practice for manual handling and in accordance with the risk assessment
Process for relocating load is proposed including predicting and planning for potential difficulties
Proposed process is checked for compliance with code of practice and workplace procedures
Actions for lifting, lowering and carrying, pulling and pushing a load are in accordance with workplace procedures and WHS/OHS requirements
Applications appropriate for team relocation of load are identified
Team lifting tasks are coordinated
Planned process and route are followed
Relocated materials are set down without damage to goods, personnel or equipment and are checked for stability
Relocation is checked to see it meets work requirements and variance/s are reported
