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.

Take a look at the video to see how it works in schools:

    Hi Andreas
    I wanted to try this block out on my test server (moodle 2.5.3) but it locked up my site on install (stuck at "site is being upgraded". When I removed the files and waited, the site recovered after a few minutes and showed the block as installed but with files missing from disk. I was able to replace the files and get to settings for the block, when I got the message: "Exabis Competencies This block still uses an old-style config_global.html file. It must be updated by a developer to use a settings.php file."

    Andreas - I do not believe this is working in Postgres. I would recommend folks proceed with caution. Perhaps it would be good to declare the maturity in the version.php and address the Warning The plugin does not declare its component in version.php. This declaration will be required for Moodle 3.0. When testing in Postgres I received the following: Table "block_exastudclassteachers". I would recommend thorough testing on a test server before deployment. Peace - Anthony

    Hi ,
    I have Installed Exabis Student Review Latest version and it is successfully installed, now I am going to Class Configuration it is getting Error at the configuration of the periods.
    My current Moodle version is 2.8+.

    hello, the administrator has to configure the periods first because the assessments are archived after a period so assessments can be made again, hope this helps, regards, andreas

    Hello! I am needing to be able to have the ability to edit teacher comments, but it appears that only the teacher that left comments is able to do that. Is this correct, or is there a way around that? Thanks!
  • Mon, Jul 6, 2015, 7:36 PM
    Hello, this is correct, this is a one-way assessment-system, however, if used with exabis eportfolio, commenting back and forth is possible,
    regards Andreas

    Andreas, we have upgraded our test environment to Moodle 3.0 and are having difficulties with the Student Review block. Will there be an updated version release, or should this already be compatible? Thanks!

    When we install in Moodle 3.1 the database upgrade fails. Can you advise a fix for this?

    This is the time when communication is done through social networks. Probably people have become lazier or just innovate ahead of time. A good platform for gathering all the information.

    Hi Andreas! What is the following string? 2.9+ | report_settings_setting_grades_rules | block_exastud I don't think the contents are correct: Delimiter ';\

    Hello Stamos, I forwarded this to a coder and will reply soon. Are you using the module?
  • Fri, Dec 4, 2020, 3:00 PM
    Hello Stamos, this was the response from my developer, if this is what you wanted to know: This string is correct, because we use single-quote inside a single-quote
    So, there is using slash
    Other way to code: "Delimiter ';'"

    But this string is not used anywhere.
    We deleted it at all
