The Competencies and Skills System (CASS)
Version 0.2

CASS provides basic services to implement competency-based education, training, and workforce development programs.
Define, manage, and access competencies and records.


View, create, and manage competencies and competency frameworks.

By providing a universal, consistent and persistent way to reference a given competency, CASS enables learning management systems, HR systems, learning record stores, talent management systems, and student information systems to produce competency-based credentials and transcripts that can be properly interpreted by any organization.

Manage Competency Frameworks


Create, connect, and view a user's competency profile.

By providing records and evidence of a learner’s competencies in a secure manner that protects the learner’s privacy, CASS enables learning activities to be tailored to the needs and capabilities of a learner.

View Competency Profiles


Tag resources with competencies in a connected world.

By enabling learning resources to be tagged with machine-readable versions of competencies, CASS facilitates the discovery and selection of resources that can help achieve a learning goal.

Align Resources with Competencies

Processing (Beta)

Determine competence through complex rules and relations.

By tracking assertions and relating competencies to one another, assertion processing can fill in the gaps in the learner knowledge profile and help answer the fundamental question: What does the learner know?
