Develop design briefs for electrotechnology projects

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




Prepare to develop design briefs.


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


Established techniques for project planning are reviewed are adopted in accordance with organisation policies.


The scope of the project is evaluated and project parameters established using a formal evaluation/survey processes.


Criteria from other related works impacting on the project are determined from specification of other work, site visits and/or discussion with appropriate person(s).


Project budget is established by setting realistic expectations of deliverables and in consideration of tangible quality differences that result in the deliver the best value.


Develop design briefs.


Design brief is developed to include scenarios/requirements established in consultation with appropriate person(s), and regulatory requirements.


Design brief is developed in collaboration with all relevant design professionals and contractors involved in the project.


Competent persons required for the project are identified and their roles specified in the design brief.


Project design brief is reviewed against all inputs and adjusted to rectify any anomalies.


Project design brief proposal is documented in accordance with organisation policies and procedures.


Obtain approval for design briefs.


Project design brief is presented and discussed with person(s) of higher authority.


Alterations to the project design brief resulting from the presentation/discussion are negotiated with person(s) of higher authority within the constraints of organisation policy.


Final project design brief is documented and approval obtained from appropriate person(s).
