Develop H.V. switching programs

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




Interpret requirements


Notification of requirement is confirmed and assessed


Area of planned outage is identified using system diagrams, drawings and/or maps, in consultation with appropriate personnel


Planned work details are interpreted from outage request or equivalent and stated on the draft program


Where appropriate, the teams and individuals roles and responsibilities within the team are identified and, where required, assist in the provision of the on-the-job training


Research switching programme


Implications of switching program on the system are identified and recognised


Types and function of switchgear to be operated are identified and their suitability for operation under forecast system conditions during scheduled outage is assessed


System loadings, limitations and alternate supply route capabilities are evaluated to ensure system integrity


Consultation with appropriate parties affected by the switching programme is undertaken in accordance with enterprise procedures


Consideration is given to geographical and/or site location of isolation points to conclude shortest possible route when determining sequence of switching steps in order to minimise outage time


Isolated work area is appraised to ensure safe working clearances are maintained in accordance with mandatory regulations and enterprise/site requirements


H.V./L.V. and control circuitry is examined to ensure no back-feed to work is possible


Draft switching program


Draft is formatted in logical sequential steps, stating location, apparatus, apparatus ID and operation to be conducted


Permit to work procedures are entered at correct step in program


Program is planned to ensure access, work and reinstatement take place in a logical and sequential manner


Switching program is checked for errors and omissions in accordance with enterprise procedures


All documentation supporting the program is filled out requirements in accordance with enterprise procedures


Validate program
