Competencies and Learning Plans: Monitoring performance via Moodle

Our latest downloadable guide is centred around on the rapid growth of Moodle in the workplace, and the unique tools which it offers for professional development. Many organisations worldwide are successfully using Moodle’s Competency feature to better monitor and evaluate staff training programmes or personal workplace learning objectives.

What are competencies?

Competencies describe the level of understanding or proficiency of a learner in certain subject-related skills. Competency-based education (CBE), also known as Competency-based learning or Skills-based learning, refers to systems of assessment and grading where learners demonstrate these competencies. In Moodle it is possible to create and apply frameworks for evaluating learners against competencies in Moodle.

The guide is designed for Moodle users at all levels of experience, and will walk you through the following stages of the process:

  • Creating a Scale
  • Creating a Competency Framework
  • Creating a Learning Plan
  • Assigning a Competency Reviewer role
  • Linking Competencies to a Course
  • Rating Competencies
  • Completing a Learning Plan

We’re currently working on a Moodle support portal which will host guides like this in a central location for all our customers. For now though, you can download the full PDF version of the guide here:
