CDSWG20 - Competency Data Standards Working Group
|Working Group Chair||
|IEEE Program Manager|
This Standard defines a data model for describing, referencing, and sharing competency definitions, primarily in the context of online and distributed learning. In this Standard a competency may be defined for a skill, knowledge, ability, attitude, habit of practice, or learning outcome.
This document provides Recommended Practices for Defining Competencies. It supports IEEE 1484.20.1, a technical standard for competency definitions data. This document gives recommended practices for defining the kinds of information that the 1484.20.1 standard encodes as interoperable data, i.e. data that defines a skill, knowledge, ability, attitude, habit of practice, behavior or learning outcome.
1484.20.1-2007 - IEEE Standard for Learning Technology-Data Model for Reusable Competency Definitions
This Standard defines a data model for describing, referencing, and sharing competency definitions, primarily in the context of online and distributed learning. This Standard provides a way to represent formally the key characteristics of a competency, independently of its use in any particular context. It enables interoperability among learning systems that deal with competency information by providing a means for them to refer to common definitions with common meanings.
