It would be very helpful if there could be a small symbol to show if a piece of evidence whether activity, assessment or review is linked to a curriculum item or not. There is a paperclip which indicates the presence of an attachment, perhaps a tick or the letter C (if attached to a curriculum item, or P if linked to a PDP item).
This would be very helpful as essentially there's no point having a piece of evidence if it's not link to a curriculum item or PDP.
Thank you very much for your suggestion John.
We love your idea of introducing a small symbol to show if an activity (inc. assessment or review) is linked to a curriculum item and have decided to implement this feature.
Here is an image so you can see what it looks like. You will notice that the image is followed by a number which shows how many competencies the activity is mapped to.
To address your final comment. We do find that trainees sometimes add activities to their portfolios without linking them to a curriculum. Each portfolio, like each trainee, is unique and we feel that it is appropriate for trainees to be able to add activities to their portfolio which they feel are pertinent to their training though not necessarily related to a particular competency or PDP item.
