The Learner Competencies Report allows Admins view all the Competencies possessed by the Learners in the portal. It allows Admins the ability to manually assign / remove Competencies and the ability to monitor and manage all competency focused activities. This article provides Admins with information about the Learner Competencies Report and the actions that are available through this report.
This Absorb Report provides the Admin with information on the types and levels of expertise that the students in their portal currently possess - be it as a result of the training the Learner has taken in the LMS directly, or from accreditations that they have previously achieved in another LMS.
With this Report the Admin can also grant Competencies manually to any number of individual Learners and/or remove any designations that have already been earned as a result of completing specific Courses.
Having this ability can prove useful for those types of Courses that require one or more Valid Competencies as a Prerequisite for being allowed to successfully enroll. It may be that a Learner has all the knowledge to take a Course, but hasn't yet completed other training in the LMS that would grant them the necessary qualifications. In this case, the Admin could override their Enrollment barrier by giving them the needed Competencies in order to sign up.
Alternatively, it might also happen that a Learner has earned a Competency incorrectly and/or maybe needs to be delayed from taking another Course that the acquired accreditation gave them access to. Potentially another scenario could be when a Learner holds a specific Competency that needs to be manually replaced with another accreditation, of the very same kind, but with a different Competency Level.
Regardless of the reason why, with this Report, the Admin can make the changes that are needed to ensure their Learners have the proper credentials for their training.
Lastly, and similar to other Learner directed Reports, the Admin can once again initiate several additional tasks and workflows based on what they learn here.
Absorb's Learner Competencies Report will launch using the standard Report layout as its starting point where an Admin can run a custom Report. The basic Learner Competencies Report can be customized to provide data on any of the following parameters:
