Overriding competency results

You can override a user’s result for any competency, learning objective or activity, and manually set it to Complete or Incomplete. An override always take precedence over a user’s actual result; if you override an activity, the system ignores the user’s actual assessment; if you override a learning objective or a competency, it ignores the number of children the user has achieved.

You might use the override feature to mark a learning objective as Incomplete if you deemed a user had completed it unfairly, or to mark a competency as Complete if a user presented alternative evidence that they had met the requirements of the competency (perhaps through prior experience or coursework at another institution).

Note  Override results are displayed with a red asterisk ().
