Level descriptors are what the name implies: descriptions of the skills and competences expected at different levels of qualifications. (The Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area uses the term "cycles") Level descriptors make explicit the learning outcomes associated with each level of qualification, and they tend to be limited to generic competences and skills. [...] Level descriptors state what learners will typically know, understand and be able to do on the basis of a given qualification.
