How is the CompetencyGenie™ Chrome extension different from the version of CompetencyGenie™ available online at https://competencygenie.ai/?

The Chrome extension version of CompetencyGenie™ works inside of the ExamSoft Legacy and Enterprise platforms and generates categorization recommendations for the user to apply to their questions. The web-based version of CompetencyGenie™ allows users to categorize questions one-by-one or by bulk batch-upload. Currently, the web-based version only categorizes Bloom's Taxonomy (Original and Revised).

If I tag a question in ExamSoft using CompetencyGenie™, how soon will I see that item updated in Enflux with the newly tagged categories?

If your institution/school leverages the EDU Suite in the Enflux platform, we refresh your data daily. If you successfully applied your new tags/categories to a question the day before, you could expect that those items were refreshed by our daily refresh of your data.

Can I use CompetencyGenie™ inside of my Enflux customer environment?

Currently you can use CompetencyGenie™ online here and the CompetencyGenie™ Chrome extension inside ExamSoft Legacy or Enterprise while using Google Chrome web browser. While we currently do not have an in-platform version of CompetencyGenie™, we are developing additional solutions and functionality for the tools. Stay tuned for exciting new developments!

Does the Chrome extension work with all question types?

Yes. Our tool categorizes all types of ExamSoft Legacy and Enterprise questions. If you receive a "Not Applicable" indicator in any of the category fields, this means that, based on the question's text, we are unable to determine the correct category. Consider adding additional context to your question or choosing which categories fit that question best. If your question is very short or only contains "Which of the following is true?" then the tool may have difficulty associating it with competencies.

What other LMS platforms can I use CompetencyGenie™ for?

This extension is only functional with ExamSoft Legacy and Enterprise at this time.

Can I use CompetencyGenie™ to tag outcomes in Canvas?

No. CompetencyGenie™ does not currently support tagging outcomes in Canvas.
