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. Determine the database size

1.1 Determine the database scope from the user requirements

1.2 Calculate the database size from the database scope and technical specifications.

1.3 Document and justify the size and scope of the database

2. Develop the technical database requirements

2.1 Design and document the data tables and relationships suitable to the user requirements and data sample

2.2 Develop and document the data dictionary, table attributes and keys suitable to the user requirements

2.3 Determine and document the database reports required by the user requirements and user acceptance criteria

3. Determine security, performance, recovery and audit requirements

3.1 Determine and document database security controls appropriate for the user requirements and the organisational data security plan

3.2 Determine and document database performance, database recovery and database audit requirements to meet the user requirements and the organisational data security plan

4. Seek client feedback and approval

4.1 Evaluate and document database management systems against the database scope and size, technical database requirements, and security, performance, recovery and audit requirements to determine the appropriate option for the user

4.2 Present database scope and size, technical database requirements, and security, performance, recovery and audit requirements documentation to the user for feedback

4.3 Review user feedback and adjust the database documentation to meet the user acceptance criteria and user feedback

4.4 Present database documentation to the user for final approval

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

  • Interprets and analyses textual information in order to gather detailed information, and confirm requirements

Numeracy

  • Extracts and calculates numerical information from textual and numerical information to determine and confirm requirements

Writing

  • Uses technically appropriate language and presents information in a format and layout that conveys factual information

Oral Communication

  • Uses active listening, questioning and summarising skills, in order to effectively identify, and confirm, requirements

Get the work done

  • Uses systematic, analytical processes in complex, non-routine situations, setting goals, gathering relevant information, and identifying, and evaluating options against the agreed criteria
  • Applies formal problem-solving processes when tackling an unfamiliar problem, breaking complex issues into manageable parts, identifying, and evaluating several options for action
  • Understands key principles and concepts underpinning the design and operation of digital systems and tools, and applies these when identifying database scope and requirements
