Managing Competency-based Assessment Feature

A competency-based assessment is an assessment that does not lay emphasis on numerical scores. For a Competency-based assessment, an instructor marks a learner as either "Competent" or "Not Competent" after learner makes a submission. The labels could be different depending your requirements. There could be more than two labels as well, for example "Moderately Competent" ,"Non Competent" and "Competent".

For a particular classroom, a learner would be considered as "Competent" if he/she manages to obtain a "Competent" label in all the competency-based assessments from the instructor in that classroom. Usually, in real-life scenarios, the learner will keep on taking assessments repeatedly, until he/she manages to obtain a "Competent"  label for all assessments.

Note: If competency-based feature is enabled, you can not attach rubric to an offline assessment and it is not currently supported.
