Develop research reports on vehicle design, development and production

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 AUMFTA006, 'Develop research reports on vehicle design, development and production'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Reference books for 'Develop research reports on vehicle design, development and production' 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


Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section

1. Determine research requirements

1.1 Research brief or problem is defined in conjunction with relevant design, engineering, marketing, production or other personnel

1.2 Research processes and requirements are developed from an analysis of available information

1.3 Research processes and requirements are documented and validated

2. Conduct research

2.1 Research strategies for use in the research project are identified and evaluated

2.2 Research plan is submitted for approval

2.3 Research activities are conducted

2.4 Collected information is processed and summarised according to the research strategy

3. Evaluate research outcomes

3.1 Research data is analysed

3.2 Research outcomes are structured to address research brief or defined problem

3.3 Specific issues and important additional findings are highlighted and summarised

3.4 Research outcomes are discussed with relevant personnel and appropriate adjustments are made to findings based on feedback

4. Document and distribute research outcomes

4.1 Research outcomes are summarised

4.2 Research documentation is completed, saved and stored for future reference

4.3 Research documentation is distributed to specified personnel
