Effective way of monitoring Accreditation courses
by Mark Whitington - Saturday, 22 November 2014, 4:38 PM

Hi all,

I am keen to find out how others amongst us manage Accreditation type courses. (eg National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards)

We have tried a new course each year, but this does not yield appropriate reports for management. That is manages want to know when the user last completed the course... not just the accumulation since January 1.

We are exploring the idea of ongoing courses where staff revisit and repeat assessments. This works until a Moodle quiz requires updating. We then have multiple quizzes to consider without considering dates when completion occurred.

We are considering the use of scorm assessments where the scorm file can be replaced without any loss of previous records. That said it would appear that some scorms are not saved into the grades book if using IE11 or if the internet connection is poor.

We have just installed Configurable reports in addition to our custom built course reporting tool. The custom tool reports course completion with a corresponding date but at this stage does not link courses.

I would love to hear about what you are doing especially if you have a successful solution to ongoing course monitoring/reporting. I am looking forward to mingling with like-minded people at this conference.

Hi Mark

James Naismith and I are presenting on this exact topic at 3pm on Friday at the Moot. 

Specifically we will be working through a solution for managing professional development and training in the context of compliance and reporting against the NSQHS standards. Please come along as we would appreciate your feedback on the solution.


Using the Learning Management System (LMS) to manage compliance with the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards

standards.jpgA look at using competency hierarchies and tracking to manage the achievement and reporting on compliance with the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards. We will look at a worked example of this framework in action and how it manages the process of achieving the required learning while also minimising and managing risk of compliance failure.

I had hoped that your session would assist us with this issue. I will look forward to hearing your suggestions/options.
