CompetencyCore Product Update - February 1 2013

Date Feb 1, 2013

We are pleased to announce great new features coming this month to CompetencyCore™ 5.

CompetencyCore™ 5 will be unavailable for 10 minutes between 10:00-11:00 pm EST Monday February 4th EST for a maintenance update.

Featured Updates:

  • Ability to copy library items as Assessment Questions: Automatically create questions for the assessment bank by copying library items in batch. For example, when you create a new competency, you can now copy all behavioral indicators quickly and easily to create assessment questions. This also enables you to quickly and easily create assessment questions at the competency level to assess organizational core competencies.
  • Ability to add private comments to plans: Users can now include private, draft comments on any Learning, Performance or Succession plan while it is still open. This allows users, whether the subject of the plan, or another contributor, such as a supervisor or manager, to log comments as drafts that are only visible to themselves. Use this feature to collect your thoughts and track ideas that you want to ensure get captured on your final plan.
  • New assessment capabilities: Incorporate knowledge-based questions and tests into your assessment process with the new functionality to add multiple choice questions and score the right and wrong answers. You can also create tests consisting of several sub-tests and instructions.
