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

Identify urban passenger requirements and resources


Passenger usage patterns, specific bookings and external events likely to influence passenger numbers are monitored and applied to urban passenger train consist planning


Requirements for carriages and motive power units for urban passenger trains are adjusted in light of passenger demand


Train crewing needs and/or constraints are identified to ensure consists are compatible with available resources


Passenger usage patterns are monitored and train configurations are adjusted in accordance with workplace procedures


Shunting and marshalling requirements are identified for planned consists in accordance with timetable requirements


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


Plan connections with other passenger services


Train timetables are compared with timetables from other passenger services for coordination purposes


Passenger flow patterns for related services are checked to ensure smooth flow patterns


Modifications to existing timetables are made to ensure mutually supporting passenger services are achieved where possible


Suitable passenger transit holding areas between services are identified and included in plan


Timetable reviews and passenger flow issues are discussed with appropriate external passenger service providers


Plan consists for urban passenger trains


Consists are planned, taking into account the need to move passengers efficiently within constraints of carriage availability, motive power availability, personnel availability, track layout, track condition, gauge and weight


Details of urban train consists are forwarded to yard and terminal operations for planning purposes
