During each course, the candidate will provide narrativeevidence of achievement of targeted outcomes, including date of completion, course #, project name,grade (if given), and hyperlink to artifact if included in KMS. Some performances may be satisfied bydocumentation of prior experience, particularly through the Computer Skill Competency Assessment(In-Tech; Georgia Special Requirement). This will be an electronic document within each candidate’sKMS, added to during each course, and cumulative to the end of the program. When anitem/outcome is checked as fully satisfied by an instructor, no additional evidence of achievement ofthe outcome is required.
