Develop effective strategies for energy reduction in buildings

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 effective strategies for energy reduction in buildings' 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 strategies for effective energy reduction in buildings.


OHS 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 evaluation is determined from specifications of building(s) and services, plant and machinery and discussed with appropriate personnel


Advice is sought from the work supervisor to ensure the work is coordinated effectively with others


Tools, testing devices, and materials needed to carry out the work are obtained and checked for correct operation and safety


Develop strategies for effective energy reduction in buildings.


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


Tests and measurements are carried out in strict accordance with OHS requirements safety procedures


In-depth knowledge of the energy use of building services, plant and machinery is applied to the evaluation process


Energy evaluation tests are set up in accordance with established test methods and procedures for each particular parameter under scrutiny


Strategies to reduce energy use with compromising occupancy standards are developed from knowledge of energy management and evaluation test results.


Unexpected situations are dealt with safely and with the approval of an authorised person


Evaluation is carried out without damage to systems, circuits, the surrounding environment or services and using sustainable energy practices


Document and report strategies for effective energy reduction in buildings


OHS work completion risk control measures and procedures are followed


Work site is cleaned and made safe in accordance with established procedures


Results of energy use evaluation and recommended strategies and their criterion for energy reduction are documented in accordance with established procedures


Energy reduction report is forwarded to appropriate persons
