Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to design and implement procedures, which measure the performance of a website, and compare these procedures to the initial design specifications.

It applies to individuals who may use significant judgement in planning, design, evaluation, technical or leadership and communications functions in frontline technical support roles.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

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. Document and define the performance criteria

1.1 Review the performance specifications and determine the benchmark criteria

1.2 Validate and document the performance functions

1.3 Select the measurement methodology, and test it on the website

1.4 Validate each performance function separately

1.5 Record and document the metric tools, using the appropriate methodology

1.6 Prepare the performance benchmarks, and seek agreement on the criteria with the client

2. Validate the performance measures

2.1 Develop inspection and test plans, in order to validate performance measures throughout the performance cycle

2.2 Test the performance functions, and record the results, according to technical documentation standards

2.3 Compare the results of performance function testing to benchmark

2.4 Redesign functions that do not meet the appropriate performance benchmarks

2.5 Re-implement functions that have been redesigned during performance testing

2.6 Document the benchmarks and obtain sign-off

3. Obtain sign-off

3.1 Validate and document, performance standards and benchmarks

3.2 Submit the methodology and function testing document, and results, to the client for approval

3.3 Review client comments and make changes, as appropriate

3.4 Obtain sign-off for the website testing procedure

Foundation Skills

This section describes language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills incorporated in the performance criteria that are required for competent performance.

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • identify the critical functions to be tested
  • develop the appropriate metrics for each function, and assign the benchmarked performance standards
  • test each performance function, and compare against the appropriate benchmarks
  • validate the performance of the site against technical requirements
  • document the results, to establish performance benchmarks for subsequent development of the site.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • identify and describe the legislation, regulations, codes of practice, and standards as they relate to web testing, including:
  • codes of ethics
  • privacy
  • copyright
  • intellectual property
  • naming
  • documentation
  • describe the client business domain, including client organisation structure and business functionality
  • identify current industry-accepted hardware and software products
  • outline the desktop applications and operating systems, as required by organisational guidelines
  • describe queuing systems, workload metrics, and user request classes
  • describe the key features, and use of, a standard generalised markup language (SGML) and its associated standards
  • explain standard web-testing procedures and optimisation tools
  • outline website design methodologies and standard website structures.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the website technologies field of work, and include access to:

  • analysis software
  • the e-business website
  • industry standards, and organisational guidelines
  • site design and technical requirements documentation
  • site-development software and tools.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
