CreditGroup

CreditGroup

A CreditGroup model element carries a group of one or more Credits within a Category within a particular certification scheme.

Many certification schemes organise two or more closely related credits within a group, in many cases offering a choice of which credits to target. This is sometimes called a "credit pathway" .

In GreenDesk, a Credit is subject to assessment criteria and is typically also subject to documentation compliance requirements, whereas a CreditGroup merely organises credits.

In GreenDesk, every Credit is always within exactly one CreditGroup - either directly, or indirectly if it is the child of a composite credit) - even if it is the only credit in that group.

GreenDesk employs a simple "empty star, half-star, full-star" system to help users easily see how they are making progress towards earning credit group points:

  • No credits for the credit group have been 'accepted' yet (according to the expert system) so no points have been counted towards the credit group.
  • At least some credits for the credit group have been 'accepted', but not all available points have been counted towards the credit group. Such a credit group is considered "partially accepted".
  • All available points have been counted towards the credit group.
