Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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

1. Design database

1.1 Identify organisational and task requirements to confirm scope and functionality of database design, including data redundancy

1.2 Develop a logical data model to identify and classify data into types in accordance with organisational and task requirements

1.3 Select appropriate digital application/platform according to organisational and task requirements, available resources, and required scope and functionality of database

1.4 Create and document proposed database structure, and share with appropriate personnel in accordance with organisational policies and procedures

1.5 Seek feedback on proposed database design from appropriate personnel

2. Develop database

2.1 Set field attributes according to data type and link databases by a common field in accordance with database application usage

2.2 Assign primary key to uniquely identify data

2.3 Assign foreign keys to establish associations between data, in accordance with organisational and task requirements

2.4 Use software functions and formulae to meet organisational and task requirements

2.5 Create password and access system according to organisational policies and procedures relating to data security

2.6 Access and use application help functions to overcome intermediate-level issues with database design and production, where required

3. Develop queries, forms and reports

3.1 Identify information output, database tables to be use and report layout, in accordance with task requirements

3.2 Identify data groupings, search and sort criteria, in accordance with task requirements

3.3 Run reports and queries to confirm that results and formulae produce required data

3.4 Modify reports to include or exclude additional requirements, where necessary

4. Test and finalise database

4.1 Populate database with sample dataset for testing, meeting organisational requirements for speed and accuracy

4.2 Assess and document effectiveness of data relationships, query forms and reports, assessing against organisational and task requirements

4.3 Document and address any errors in database design

4.4 Name and store database in accordance with organisational policies and procedures relating to data security, and exit the application without data loss or damage

4.5 Confirm database readiness with appropriate personnel

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

Skill 

Description 

Reading

  • Comprehends the main messages in texts of varying complexity

Writing

  • Uses basic models to produce a range of text types with formatting and font chosen appropriate to database design
  • Uses technical information and structure appropriate to the requirements of the audience and purpose

Oral Communication

  • Confirms requirements using industry-specific language

Numeracy

  • Extracts, interprets and comprehends routine formulae and digital application functions to establish data relationships

Navigate the world of work

  • Adheres to organisational policies and procedures relevant to own role

Get the work done

  • Develops plans to manage relatively complex, non-routine tasks according to organisational requirements
  • Takes responsibility for the outcomes of routine decisions related directly to own role
