Competency Assessment Models - Manage

A competency model is a group of competencies that defines the skills and knowledge that are required for a job. It is a collection of competencies that define successful performance for a job.

Use the Competency Models page to create new competency models, define competency model categories, define the default rating scale for competency models, and search for and manage existing competency models.

NOTE: Before creating and managing competency models, administrators must first define their organization's competencies.

Competencies and competence categories are defined through the Competency Bank. See Competency Bank - Overview.

To access the Competency Models page, go to Admin > Tools > Performance Management > Competency Assessment Models. Then, click the Competency Assessment Models link in the Competency Assessments section.

Competency Models Table

Within the Competency Models table, a competency model is only displayed if the administrator has Admin Visibility for the competency model. In addition, the administrator must also have permission to view, edit, or manage competency models.

The following information is displayed for each competency model:

  • Model - Competency model name. For competency models with multiple versions, an expand icon appears to the left of the competency model name. Click this icon to view the additional versions. The following information is displayed for previous versions:
    • Name - Competency model name prior to the new version being created.
    • Version - Competency model version number.
    • Preview - A read-only version of the competency model settings for the previous version.

Competency Model Options

The following options are available for competency models:

  • Preview - View a read-only version of the competency model settings. This option is only available if the administrator has permission to view, edit, or manage competency models.
  • Edit - Edit a competency model. This option is only available if the administrator has permission to edit or manage competency models. Note: When editing a competency model, administrators can view all of the competencies that have been added to the competency model, regardless of the administrator's permissions and the competencies' Admin Visibility settings. When editing a competency or competency model that has been used in a Competency Assessment type performance review section, a warning message is displayed at the top of the Edit Competency Model page. This warning is intended to prevent modifications to the competency model from affecting In Progress or Competed performance reviews.
