INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the Assessor Marking Guide for RIICWD512E Prepare detailed design of motorways and interchanges. This Marking Guide provides you with assessment tasks, checklists and marking guidance. It also provides advice on delivering the assessment for this unit.
This document is one of a suite of resources which has been developed by RTO Works to support you in delivering assessment for units of competency from the Business Services Training Package.
Please ensure that you read this guide in conjunction with the Civil Construction Works Assessor User Guide.
SUPPORTING RESOURCES
A number of documents have been provided with this Marking Guide to support assessors and students.
FOR THE ASSESSOR
? Civil Construction Works Assessor User Guide: The Assessor User Guide provides important information for assessors relating to the delivery of quality assessment.
? Assessment Mapping: A mapping guide is included as a separate document to show how each assessment task maps to the unit of competency. You will find the assessment mapping in the Mapping folder for this unit.

? Supporting resources: Supporting resources include templates, journals, workbooks and portfolios which can be used by the student to support them in providing evidence of their competence. You will find supporting resources in the Student Resources folder for this unit. Please ensure that students receive these documents before they begin their assessment tasks. For this unit, the supporting resources for students comprise:
o Project Portfolio Template (Assessment Task 2)
o Detailed Design of Motorways and Interchanges Plan Template (Assessment Task 2).

ASSESSING THIS UNIT
RIICWD512E Prepare detailed design of motorways and interchanges describes the skills and knowledge required to prepare detailed designs of motorways and interchanges in civil construction, including evaluating design options, preparing and finalising designs and advising on design implementation.
It applies to those working in management or technical specialist roles. They generally apply a broad range technical and managerial skills and are responsible for the delivery of outputs that meet site requirements.
For students to be assessed as competent, they must successfully complete two assessment tasks:
? Assessment Task 1: Knowledge questions – Students must answer all questions correctly.
? Assessment Task 2: Project – Students must work through a range of activities and complete a Project Portfolio.
THE SIMULATED ASSESSMENT ENVIRONMENT
The assessment conditions of this unit include the following statement:
‘Guidance on simulated environments has been stipulated in the Companion Volume Implementation Guide located on VETNet.’
The Companion Volume Implementation Guide for the RII training package states the following regarding simulated workplaces:
‘Training and assessment in simulated environments
Units of competency in the RII Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package may be delivered and assessed in the workplace or in a simulated environment.
The simulation must be established to meet industry requirements and be supported by industry. The simulated work environment should involve a range of guided activities that reflect real work experiences. The RII Training Package identifies in the assessment conditions where simulation can be used for assessment purposes.
Where simulation is identified in the assessment conditions of a unit of competency it must be realistic and fully replicate the sector’s work environment. It must be sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of the sector’s workplace performance, including task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills, and job role environment skills (page 40).’

‘Workplace simulation criteria
In conducting training and assessment in a simulated workplace environment, trainers and assessors must make sure that the simulated environment gives the learner the opportunity to meet the following critical criteria:
? 1 Quality – The work is of the standard required in the industry.
? 2 Productivity – The work is performed within a timeframe appropriate in the industry.
? 3 Safety – The work is performed in a manner that meets industry safety standards.
Where simulations meet these criteria, RTOs can be confident that learners are ‘work ready’ on successful completion of units of competency.
Simulations should provide opportunities for integrated assessment of competence that include:
? performing the task (task skills)
? managing a number of tasks (task management skills)
? dealing with workplace irregularities such as unexpected problems, breakdowns and changes in routine (contingency management skills)
? fulfilling the responsibilities and expectations of the job and workplace, including working with others (job/role environment skills)
? transferring competency to new contexts.
To further enhance the validity of assessment processes using simulation, the assessor should consider:
? assessments covering a range of interconnected units of competency
? use of assessment checklists to ensure that all performance evidence and knowledge evidence requirements have been met
? use of self-assessment, peer assessment and debriefing activities
? use of authentic workplace documentation.
Assessment activities must be realistic and reasonable in terms of scale (page 55).’
This unit is accompanied by a Simulation Pack that outlines to RTOs the requirements of implementing assessment – this includes information about the need for RTOs to provide project documentation which could include, depending on the unit, project plans and specifications, design briefs, engineering surveys, geotechnical data and hydrological, meteorological, cultural and heritage data.
The benchmarks provided in the Project Portfolio are generic in nature and the RTO will need to contextualise and update the Project Portfolio to include benchmarks that are accurate and relevant to the project and the associated documentation that has been provided to students.
