You can use this report's data to monitor and manage all Competency focused activities, and manually assign or remove Competencies from specific Learners.

The Learner Competencies Report is located in the Reports tab on the left side of the Admin Interface. Selecting the report name will redirect you to the Learner Competencies Report page. From here, you can filter results based on a variety of data points.
