About parent-child relationships between competency structure elements

When you create a complete competency structure you must first create the elements that make up the structure and associate those elements together. Associated elements have a parent-child relationship. For example, if an activity is associated with a learning objective, the activity is the child and the learning objective is the parent.

If you want to create more complex structures (for example, a learning objective associated with two competencies in different levels of a nested structure), consider creating all of your elements first before adding parent-child relationships.

You can create the following element associations:




The competencies icon Competency

Other competencies

  • Learning objectives
  • Other competencies

The learning object icon Learning Objective

  • Competencies
  • Other learning objectives
  • Activities
  • Other learning objectives

The activity icon Activity

Learning objectives
