This page applies to Compact2Learn students.




Activities include the details of a student's training, service, or work experiences and are attached to Compact2Learn experiences. Activities can include details such as hours, activity types, clients, assessments, notes, or tags.

Activity Level

Activity levels allow students to track activities earned for different degree or training types (e.g., masters, doctoral, internship, etc.). Activity levels determine the activity type list available to students.

Activity Type List

An activity type list is a preset list of categories and subcategories that allow students to better define the details of their service or civic engagement programs. Activity type lists are selected or created by administrators based on program needs.


When a student logs an activity, they can use assessments to document the type and number of assessments administered as part of the activity.

Batch Name

Batch names are used to name and organize the delivery of forms and evaluations and are used each time forms or evaluations are sent.


A cohort is a group of students who start a program in the same year. The cohort is automatically assigned based on the year the student signs up for Compact2Learn but can be edited by an institutional administrator.

Experience Type

Experience Types refer to the name and/or number associated with a practicum, internship, training course, service experience, etc. Institutional administrators create experience types. Students select the experience type, which may include levels, as part of their experience.

Experience Type Level

Institutional administrators assign experience type levels to each experience type they create.

Custom Activity Type

A custom activity type can be used to better define an activity. Students create custom activity types and link them to a standard activity type.


Faculty is an optional role assigned by the institutional administrator. The faculty role can verify student activities after supervisor approval, approve or reject activities on behalf of a supervisor, and complete forms and evaluations.


A form or evaluation is a survey, assessment evaluation, contract, or another key document that requires signatures. It can be sent to students, supervisors, faculty members, and institutional administrators. Institutional administrators manage forms and evaluations.

Form Status

Form status identifies where a form or evaluation is in the workflow.

Online Approval

Online Approval allows students to submit activities to supervisors for review and approval.


Experiences refer to a student's field-based experiences, such as practicum, field placements, internships, service experience, or other types of experiential learning. Experiences contain key details, such as the location, primary supervisor, term, faculty, level, and experience type. Students create their experiences at the start of the activity by selecting from options created by the institutional administrator.

Note that your configuration of Compact2Learn may use a different label for this feature, such as internship, fieldwork placement, etc.


Supervisors can be linked to locations and student experiences. Depending on your Compact2Learn configuration, the supervisor role can also review and approve student activities and complete forms and evaluations.


A tag is a keyword or term used to track additional details about a client or activity. Tags can be created by the institutional administrator or a student. Tags created by an institutional administrator are highlighted in orange and tags created by a student are highlighted in green.


A term is the date range created for the student’s activity and is attached to a student experience.


A student is a role assigned to an intern, postgraduate, or professional who uses Compact2Learn to log and organize their experiences.

Note that your configuration of Compact2Learn may use a different label for this feature, such as organization, fieldwork site, etc.

Location Type

A location type allows a student to provide more details about the organization where they complete activities and accrue hours.

Note that your configuration of Compact2Learn may use a different label for this feature, such as organization type, setting type, etc.
