The goal of this module is to bring competencies that have been provided (generate them at www.edustandards.org) 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 (also referred to as outcomes or rubrics) 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.
Teachers can add their own material to competencies documenting on which competence-fields they work with. Students can self-reflect, contribute by adding individual artefacts to competencies and build up their individual compentence-profile course-independently.
Also teachers can associate Moodle assignments with rubrics/outcomes.
