Develop and test code for microcontroller devices

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 UEENEEI156A, 'Develop and test code for microcontroller devices'.

Reference books for 'Develop and test code for microcontroller devices' 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 and test basic specifications.


OHS processes and procedures for a given work area are obtained and understood.


Established OHS risk control measures and procedures in preparation for the work are followed.


The extent of specifications to be developed is determined from job performance requirements and in consultations with relevant persons.


Activities are planned to meet scheduled timelines in consultation with others involved on the work.


Appropriate development kit and software are selected based on specified requirements and performance standard.


Strategies are implemented to ensure programming is carried out efficiently.


Develop basic specification.


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


Knowledge of micro controller functions and features are applied to developing specifications.


Correct structure and syntax is applied to developing program specification for target micro controller function.


Key features of the assembler programming language are applied to develop and test solutions.


Approaches to issues/problems are analysed to provide most effective solutions.


Quality of work is monitored against personal performance agreement and/or established organizational or professional standards.


Test and document the basic specification.


Testing procedures are developed to analyse code developed.


Problems and bugs are rectified to ensure specification the creation of the code is met.


Intermediate and final work reports are written in accordance with professional standards and presented to appropriate person or persons.
