Weld rail on tram/light rail systems using submerged ARC welding process

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 for welding


Weld requirements are identified from specifications and/or technical drawings


Rail surface is correctly prepared using tools and techniques appropriate to the material and process


Materials are assembled/aligned to specifications as required


Track is measured prior to commencement of welding


Welding machine settings and consumables are identified from job requirements, welding procedures, specifications and/or technical drawings


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


Assemble and set up equipment


Welding equipment is assembled and set up safely and correctly in accordance with operating procedures


Defective equipment is tagged and replaced in accordance with organisational and manufacturer specifications


Weld rail using submerged arc process


Pad, butt and fillet welds are deposited correctly in flat and fillet welds in horizontal position in accordance with specifications


Joints are cleaned to specifications using techniques and tools appropriate to the defect, material and process


Inspect welds and correct faults


Weld joints are visually inspected against specifications


Track is measured to ensure welded track is within accepted tolerances


Weld defects are identified and remedial action is taken, where required


Defects are removed with minimum loss of sound metal using techniques and tools appropriate to the defect, material and process


Maintain weld records


Weld records are filled in legibly and proofread


Weld records are processed in accordance with organisational procedures
