The Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative

Competency & Skills System (CaSS)

Providing a robust common language and translation method for competencies, evidence of attainment, and associated resources.


Description

This project focuses on the research, design, and development of services that enable competency frameworks to be leveraged within the Total Learning Architecture (TLA). The Competency and Skills System (CASS) enables collection, processing, and incorporation of credentials and data ("assertions") about an individuals’s competencies into a machine-readable learner profile. CaSS will create an infrastructure that enables competencies, competency frameworks, and competency-based learner models to be managed and accessed independently of a learning management system, course, training program, or credential.
