This module can be used to work with digital competence grids within Moodle spanning over courses. This concept allows for - teachers to create digital competence grids in Moodle - teachers to work collaboratively, sharing tasks and materials in the pedagogical framework of a competence grid - individualization by assigning specific tasks to all or certain students - working with a weekly schedule using a drag&drop interface - using the free app DAKORA for both teachers and students to provide materials and upload solutions to Moodle - creating extensive competence profiles of students related to their level and achievements - comprehensive reporting of students’ achievements, competence levels and soft skills

Teachers and students can document their work within competence fields - students self-reflect and establish their individual course spanning competence profiles. Portfolio artefacts can be linked to competences. Teachers can assign learning paths to students and provide them with different (Moodle-)activities and materials on different difficulty levels.

Competence grids can be created in a Moodle course collaboratively or externally at (export of xml-file).  
The module used together with the app DAKORA addresses the aspect that all teachers (Moodle experts as well as those that want to discover Moodle step-by-step) are provided with a pedagogical framework from the first moment on using pre-configured settings.

Exabis Competencies – Competence grid is part of a suite of three main modules: Exabis ePortfolio (portfolio work), Exabis Competencies - Competence grids (connecting artefacts to competences and individualization paths using digital competence grids) and 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 – these are teacher guided, self-paced, competence-based and individualized.

The free app DAKORA (working with digital competence grids) which was developed together with the Federal Ministry of Education in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, allows work with all three modules with an innovative interface for tablets and smartphones which can be downloaded from all app stores.

    The translation is complete, but many German words remain. How can I change the German text?

    Thank you for sharing this great tool with the open source community!

    This set of plugins looks like it has HUGE potential--quick question: is there any easy way to import existing Moodle Competency Frameworks?

    I tried to do it and it looks like the formats are not currently compatible, which is too bad since there could be a lot of synergy between these tools....

    Thank you!

    Hello Joseph, thank you for your remarks. At the moment there is no interaction between the frameworks. The reason for that is, that we are still admidst the development of the module for our customer. We have thought about it, as soon as we will find some funding for the interface, we will gladly implement it. However our concept is a little different, we work with a course-spanning concept and digital competence grids used for individualization. For this we have also developed an app to work this setting (it is called Dakora), best regards, Andreas

    This is a very useful plugin. thanks for the great work. I managed to understand how the plugin works, but I could not figure out how to get a competency radar as in this picture . I am using Moodle 3.8 and the plugin version 4.6.4. In the Competence profile i see the table in blue circles. my question is how to get competency radar or other similar visualization?

    Is the Dakora App (Access via Webbrowser) integrated in this Plugin? On the gtn Website you can Access an webbased Version.
    Thank you for replies and some hints

    Hello, the app can be downloaded from the Appstores for ios/android/windows - it is a standalone app that saves all data to Moodle - it uses webservices for that. For a webbased-Version you can use the version from our website. Regards, Andreas

    Thanks Andreas. In Baden-Württemberg the BelWü hosts and supports the plugins. But I want to make a test installation for the competence grids and Dakora on a dedicated Moodle Installation. So I am searching for the Plugins BelWü uses. You mean, I should use the Link and put the URL of my Moodle installation in when Exabis is installed ?
    Another question to the installation: is it possible to install the plugins and use Moodle as its used before installation? Thank You!

    Yes, please do so, just enter the URL to your installation. All data is kept in Moodle within our modules so you can use Moodle as before without interference, best regards Andreas

    Trank you. I try it. Is it possibel to get a full documentation about the installation and administration auf the Exabis Plugins in School? Competence grids, Lernentwicklungsberichte, E-Portfolio and so on?
    Can you give me a hint where I can find the plugin Exabis Cleanup? I is also recommend in the BelWü Manual for Dakora, best regards Stefan
