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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver UEENEEI152A, 'Develop, enter and verify programs in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Develop, enter and verify programs in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
Prepare to develop programs for supervisory control and data acquisition systems.
OHS procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood through established routines and procedures.
Established OHS risk control measures and procedures are followed in preparation for the work.
The extent of the SCADA system is determined from design brief and process specifications.
Process data are analysed for development of graphical design/mimic diagrams.
PLC analogue and digital addresses are related to tag database.
Tag data types are configured in the database.
Graphic objects are created and where appropriate are added to a graphic library. (See Note 1)
Consideration is give to the security requirements for the SCADA system to prevent access by unauthorised personnel.
The SCADA system is configured to provide appropriate reporting mechanisms.
Equipment, software and testing devices needed to carry out the work are obtained and checked for correct operation and safety.
Develop and enter programs using dedicated supervisory control and data acquisition software.
Established OHS risk control measures and procedures for carrying out the work are followed.
SCADA software is used to develop human-machine interface (HMI) of processes.
Supervisory control functions, data acquisition components and automated tasks are programmed using SCADA software.
Data is manipulated within the SCADA software.
Alarms and limits for process variables are identified and programmed accordingly.
Trends for process variables and limits are programmed accordingly.
Reports are configured to display/print appropriate information.
User rights/security is configured to provide appropriate access to the different sections/controls of the SCADA system.
Methods for dealing with unexpected situations are selected on the basis of safety and specified work outcomes.
Monitor, verify and document programming activities.
Device operation is tested in strict accordance OHS requirements and procedures.
Entered objects and settings are tested as meeting those specified in the design brief.
SCADA software tools are used to test and monitor programs and operating faults, anomalies are identified and rectified.
OHS work completion risk control measures and procedures are followed.
SCADA system specification and program are documented in accordance with established procedures.
Work completion is reported and appropriate personnel notified in accordance with established procedures.
1. Graphic libraries are typically part of vender software for SCADA systems.
