Blocks: Exabis 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
