Estimate/calculate load shifting requirements for a mobile crane

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.


Identify mathematical information and tools used in the workplace


Dimensions and/or weights to be measured are identified from work procedures and, as required, work order forms


Units of measurement for allowable safe working load (SWL) and working load limits (WLL) for load shifting are identified from crane load chart


Information presented in mathematical symbols, diagrams and pictorial representations is recognised, interpreted and used to complete workplace tasks


Measuring equipment, features and/or scales and units of measurement are selected as appropriate for task and process


Estimate and calculate requirements for load shifting


Appropriate methods are selected to perform calculations required to complete workplace tasks, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percentages and mixed numbers


Quantities of materials and resources required to complete work task are calculated


Load balance characteristics are identified


Time needed to complete a work activity is estimated


Calculations required for weight, reach, radii, boom and jib configurations are undertaken and checked for conformity with crane load chart information


Load spread is estimated/calculated to ensure safe weighting on pallets, trucks, platforms or other storage or transport systems


Measuring instruments are read to limit of tool accuracy


Complete documentation using mathematical information


Appropriate workplace documentation is completed using recognised symbols and mathematical terms for work tasks


Numerical information is self-checked and corrected for accuracy
