Develop control programs for microcomputer equipped devices

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

Reference books for 'Develop control programs for microcomputer equipped devices' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria




Prepare to develop control programs for microcomputer equipped devices.


OHS processes and procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood.


Established OHS risk control measures and procedures are followed in preparation for the work.


The extent of development work is determined from design brief and in consultation with relevant persons.


Development work is planned to meet scheduled timelines in consultation with others involved on the work site.


Appropriate development tools and software are selected based on specified requirements and performance standards.


Materials and devices/components required for the work are selected on compatibility of specifications with control requirements and project budget constraints.


Strategies are implemented to ensure development work is carried out efficiently.


Develop control programs.


OHS risk control measures and procedures for carrying out the work are followed.


Knowledge of computer-equipped devices and systems and compliance standards are applied to the design.


Alternative arrangements for the development are considered based on the requirements outlined in the design brief.


Safety, functional and budget considerations are incorporated in the design.


Prototype devices and circuits are constructed and tested for compliance with the design brief and regulatory requirements.


Knowledge of programming language code, functions and features in current use are applied to developing control programs.


Prototype malfunctions are rectified and re-tested to ensure effective operation of design.


Program development is documented for submission to appropriate person(s) for approval.


Approaches to issues/problems are analysed to provide most effective solutions.


Quality of work is monitored against personal performance agreement and/or established organisational or professional standards.


Test, evaluate, implement and document control programs.


Testing and procedures are developed to evaluate control program.


Problems and bugs in program are identified and rectified to ensure specifications are met.


Intermediate and final work reports are written in accordance with professional standards and presented to appropriate person(s).
