The main goal of this plugin is to facilitate the work of learning plan managers. It provides an overview of user learning plan, without leaving the page to get information related to this learning plan(such as rating in courses,user evidence,). It also offers statistics by learning plans and competencies. For learning plan templates with a very large number of learning plans (generated from cohorts), this plugin is the best solution, with its advanced filter, it allows you to filter the learning plans by several criterias.
Role and permissions
This plugin can be used in system or category context. The user using this plugin in the category must have these permissions:
Note that planview is always set in user context level. Thus, we must assign a user to a cohort using
Site administration/Users/Permissions/Assign user roles to cohort so he will have the “moodle/competency:planview” of every member of that specific cohort (must wait for the next cron execution to take effect).
To fully benefit from the reports, a color must be associated to each value of the scale. To set the scale values colors, you must have “moodle/competency:competencymanage” permission. Here are the steps :
- Go on “Home / ► Site administration / ► Competencies / ► Competencies scale colors”
- Choose a framework competency
- Choose a scale from framework competency
- Set the colors values using the ColorPicker
- Save the changes
That’s it, now the colors are set and ready to be used in the reports pages.
Monitoring of learning plans page
In a category context or system context go on
Reports / ► Monitoring of learning plans
Filtering helps us find a user’s learning plan. Here are the steps:
By learning plan template
From a learning plan template, we can filter learning plans.
- Select a template
- From “Student using this template”, select a user
- click on “Apply”
You will see the learning plan of the student selected, and you can navigate between learning plan based on that template. If there is no student selected, the first student from the template will be displayed.
By clicking on “show more…”, you can have more options to filter learning plans by scales values.
There are two options for using scales values filter
- Filtering learning plans by scale values from competencies rated at course level
- Filtering learning plans by scales values from competencies rated in the plan (Final rating)
When filtering by scales values, the number of rating in the student list will be displayed:
We can choose a particular student by typing his name in the user picker field in order to retrieve his learning plans
