Blocks: Exabis Competencies

block_exacomp
Maintained by Picture of andreas riepl andreas riepl
The goal of this module is to bring competencies that have been developed and provided from an xml-file (which can be generated online) into Moodle-courses. Teachers and students can document their process in working with different competencies.

The goal of this module is to bring competencies that have been developed and provided from an xml-file into Moodle-courses. Competencies from a students' sight can be expressed as “I can”-statements (example: “I can use spreadsheet formulas to solve a mathematical problem”).
These so-called descriptors document the acquisition of competencies (skills) in a certain subject. By this, educational standards can be transported across a whole school-type (Moodle-installation) giving teachers as well as students the opportunity to document their work with these competencies.
In addition prototypical examples that work with different competencies can be transported easily throughout a Moodle-installation using the block allowing teachers and students to work with these examples to acquire competencies and find orientation on how examples should be made from a teachers’ perspective to fulfill certain educational standards.
Within the exabis-competencies-block  teachers may associate Moodle assignments with descriptors.

The xml-file that contains the data that works with the block can be generated at this url: http://www.edustandards.org

    Hi,
    Another English language string that looks like german language:

    exaportinfotext "Eine Übersicht über die Portfolio Einträge, die mit Kompetenzen assoziiert sind"

    might perhaps be "An overview of the portfolio entries that are associated with skills"

    Thanks again

    Hi,
    Another string:
    explain_bewertungsschema "Hier können sie das Bewertungsschema für diesen Kurs festlegen. Erlaubt sind Zahlen von 1-10. Standardmäßig wird 1 verwendet, d.h. es kann in einer Checkbox gewählt werden, ob eine Kompetenz erfüllt ist oder nicht. Eine Zahl n grösser 1 bewirkt eine Bewertungsskala mit n Ausprägungen."

    might be (according to google translate) "Here you can specify the marking scheme for this course. Allowed are numbers 1-10. 1 is used by default, i.e. it can be selected in a checkbox, if a competence is satisfied or not. N is a number greater than 1 causes a rating scale with n occurrences."

    Thanks again

    Hi,
    Another string:
    infotext "Dises Dokument bietet eine Übersicht über deinen bisherigen Kompetenzerwerb. Es setzt sich aus Daten von 3 unterschiedlicher Module zusammen und bietet einen umfangreichen Überblick über deine Fähigkeiten."

    might be (by google translator) "Here you can specify the marking scheme for this course. Allowed are numbers 1-10. 1 is used by default, i.e. it can be selected in a checkbox, if a competence is satisfied or not. N is a number greater than 1 causes a rating scale with n occurrences."

    Thanks again

    I love the concept behind this plugin. I can't wait to use it with my ESL students.
    I'm using Moodle 2.3.3 and I get this message:
    "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Invalid database query parameter value"
    What should I do?
    Thanks in advance.

    kann es sein, dass keine deskriptoren importiert worden sind?

    The statements are in German and it appears they are from the xml file downloaded from edustandards.org site. Is there any way to have this file in english?

    I have successfully re-imported competencies in the past, but recently I can't ever get them to re-import. The message always says, "There is no data available to import." I am putting the xml file generated at edustandards.org into the xml folder in the exacomp folder.

    Hi, It would appear that not all plugins are 2.6 ready, for example the Exa Portfolio(s) and this one. When I upload These plugins into the mod Folder of 2.6, when Moodle Looks to install These modules it Comes up with modulename. Any idea when a fix will be ready?

    I like the concept of this Block, only when I install it for 2.1, the block shows up, but only the first two menu items show up. I have nothing after "Subjects & Topics". What am I missing?
    Thanks.
