D2L - Activities, Objectives, and Competencies (UW-Madison)
After enabling rubrics for UW-Madison, users will notice artifacts of an un-enabled "competencies" tool that can be safely ignored.
Users may receive errors, or notice a lack of functionality, in the following areas:
- Dropbox "Objectives" tab: users will receive an error when clicking this tab.
- Discussion "Objectives" tab: users will receive an error when clicking this tab.
- Rubrics "Properties" tab: users will see a "Competencies" option under "Allow new associations" under "Advanced Availability." Checking this option has no effect at this time.
The competencies tool has not been enabled at UW-Madison because it currently can only be used at the course level, and requires a great deal of time to set up with little benefit of reporting. We are currently exploring ways to make the tool useful at a departmental/program level. Please contact us if you have an interest in exploring this tool at the course level.
