Certification is a process : skills are declared, then evaluated and validated.
Even without a formal certification, the process is the same, each outcome or skill is evaluated by teachers againts a binary scale (0 / 1, or an outcome scale (NA, pass, well done, outstanding).
The Certificate thumbnail gives an instant view of student's achievement to certification. At the end of the certification process, the "certificate" is a "document" which the student can get, print, export.
A certificate is composed by :
* A list of skills, competencies, outcomes validated for a given Skills repository (Competency framework) * A synthesis by the student owner * A commentary by the referee (a teacher) * The referee name (a teacher validator) * Date and jury's decision
When a certificate is locked (pink background), not any skill can be added by student.
When a certificate is closed, not any activiy declaration can be added by student.
Items with null inprint are nor retained for certification...
Each Item which is validated in the activities a number of time which is at least equal to the value of it inprint is validated for the certification.
For example if the item A.1.1 gets an inprint of 2 it has to be validated at least two times (in two activity declarations).
Calculus of a grade
Grade are displayed as percentiles for domains and compétencies...
At Item level: 100% * NUMBER_VALIDATION_ITEM / INPRINT_ITEM At competency level : 100% * SUM(NUMBER_VALIDATION_ITEM / WEIGHT_ITEM) / SUM(WEIGHT_ITEM * INPRINT_ITEM) At domain level : 100% * SUM(NUMBER_VALIDATION_ITEM / WEIGHT_ITEM) / SUM(WEIGHT_ITEM * INPRINT_ITEM)
By the way, the contribution of an Item the grade of the competency (or domain) is proportionnal to WEIGHT * INPRINT.
