Conduct a 3D instrument approach

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



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.


Prepare for approach


Latest available information for destination is reviewed


Navigation system validity check is conducted as applicable


Receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM)/ satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) check is conducted as required


Flight plan is selected, loaded, checked and activated as applicable


Current approach chart for approach to be flown is selected and briefed


Navigation aid required for approach is checked and confirmed as serviceable


Conduct initial approach


Altimeter QNH is set correctly


Aircraft is manoeuvred to the holding fix


Conduct a holding pattern


Holding pattern is entered and performed from the holding fix


Aircraft is flown in accordance with relevant approach procedure requirements


Conduct an approach


Altimeter QNH is updated and set


Automation is used appropriately


Navigation aid signal integrity is monitored during approach


Vertical and lateral flight path is flown within published tolerances


Specified altitude check on glide slope is performed


Aircraft is flown to a stabilised descent profile from the final approach fix to minima


Visual reference is established and a visual circling or runway approach is conducted for a landing on the selected runway


Conduct a missed approach


Missed approach conditions are recognised and missed approach is initiated


Aircraft is manoeuvred to the missed approach point (MAPt)


Missed approach procedure is conducted in accordance with the instrument approach and landing (IAL) chart


Obstacle clearance in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) or simulated IMC is maintained
