Exabis student review can be used for the assessment of soft skills, where teachers from different Moodle courses can contribute to one report being generated.

Key features are: 

  • verbally assess students within a defined time-period
  • create different roles for evaluators related to the role in the organisation
  • create individual reports and fields with the report-assistant
  • assign reports to different roles
  • connect to competences
  • generate different reports for learning development, report cards,...

Exabis student review is part of a suite of three main modules: 

Exabis ePortfolio
portfolio work 

Exabis Competencies - Competence grids
competency-based education connecting learning products  to competences and defining personalized learning paths using digital competence grids and. Base (together with exabis ePortfolio) for the DAKORA-App

Exabis student review
course spanning reporting tool of students’ achievements including assessment of soft skills.

The module can be used standalone or as part of this suite. Advantage of using all three modules together is that learner driven learning paths can be established – guided by trainers, self-paced, competency-based and personalised.

The free app DAKORA (working with digital competence grids) allows work with two of the modules (exaport, exacomp) with a simplified and innovative interface for tablets and smartphones which can be downloaded from all app stores. All data of the app is stored in MOODLE.

Try out DAKORA at https://exacloud.at/dakora

For a detailed documentation refer to Admins' manual or the Teachers' manual.

    FYI, during the plugin review In Moodle 2.4 I noticed the following: The block exastud does not define the standard capability block/exastud:addinstance Peace - Anthony

    One more thing I discovered, "This block still uses an old-style config_global.html file. It must be updated by a developer to use a settings.php file" please make that fix so the block is 2.x compatible. Peace - Anthony

    fyi - the recommended (but not required) repository name would be moodle-block_exastud

    I've gone ahead and approved the plugin. When you have a moment, it would be helpful to provide a tracker url to the Useful links section. Even if there is no dependency, we can still create a set of plugins that are best installed together (for example exaport). Peace - Anthony

    Andreas - Thanks for cleaning up the README.txt. I see that you added the addinstance capability. The copyright holder still seems to be a bunch of initial and is not really clear but I will leave that up to you. It does not appear that there are any settings so it looks like your removed the config_global.html file which is fine. One small thing I noticed while installing and poking around was:

    Invalid get_string() identifier: 'commentshouldnotbeempty' or component 'block_exaport'. Perhaps you are missing $string['commentshouldnotbeempty'] = ''; in /m24/blocks/exaport/lang/en/block_exaport.php?

    The code you have in the picture_upload_form.php file is:

    get_string("commentshouldnotbeempty", "block_exaport")

    I'm not sure what the reference to block_exaport is - is that a separate block? If so, it is not listed as a dependency in the version.php. Otherwise, the string is missing in the lang file. In any case, this is a smaller issues and not likely to hold up approving the block. If the block does have dependencies then we should probably create a set.

    Peace - Anthony

    Hi Andreas,
    I was translating the Exabis Student Review plugin in AMOS and I noticed a strange-looking English language string:

    2.5 [errorstarttimebeforeendtime,block_exastud]
    Period {$a->description} has its starttime before its endtime!

    Maybe I am wrong, but the start_time must always be before the end_time, and the error is just the opposite.

    Or could it be that this plugin checks from (let's say, today=start_time) to a given moment in the past (end_time) ?

    Could you please check this, as I am not a native English speaker.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
