Associating activities

Activities are created inside a course offering and are the only competency structure elements that can be assessed. You can set up flexible competency structures and associate multiple learning objectives with an activity or associate multiple activities to a learning objective.

The following are ways you can associate activities to learning objectives:

  • Association only (no assessment) - You can assign this type of association to activities that are part of a learning objective's coverage, but do not require any formal assessment. This association type has no impact on competency structure completion and does not affect competency or learning objective evaluations.
  • Association with rubric assessment - You can assign this type of association to activities if you want to assess users, but you do not want assessment to affect competency or learning objective evaluations within a competency structure. This is useful if you are creating diagnostic or formative assessments.
  • Association with rubric assessment and threshold criterion - You can assign this type of association to activities if you want to assess users and make the assessment a requirement for competency structure completion. The threshold is the minimum required rubric level or percentage score a user must achieve in the assessment to complete the associated learning objective.
