Hello, and welcome to CASS.
This walkthrough will take you through the basic functionality of CASS.
This menu will take you to other tools in CASS.
This and the Insert menu will allow you to create and modify frameworks, competencies relations, levels, etc.
These menus are context sensitive, meaning they will change based on whether you are logged in or have created the framework being viewed.
This will allow you to search frameworks and log into CASS.
Most of the information in CASS is viewable without having to log in.
Logging in will provide you the ability to create and modify frameworks.
This is a competency framework. A competency framework a collection of competencies related to a subject, profession, or area.
Competency frameworks in CASS include relationships among competencies and the levels the levels at which competencies in the framework can be held.

A competency may contain one or more levels.

Levels also have titles that are granted to the person who achieved or exceeded the level.
A framework also contains one or more relations. A relation relates two competencies to one another using a formal relationship. There are six formal relations that are currently defined in CASS.
