Competency information can be used to support quality management in e-Learning and assessment. This paper focuses on the exploration of two methodologies that were developed using a competency semantics information model in order to support quality management of learning content and assessment. Learning content including testing content and assessment events were analyzed in detail using the model. Both methodologies were based on a quantitative analysis approach as defined within the field of quality engineering. The two methodologies were used in a complementary manner and the gaps were identified between learning and test activities and between competency definition and assessments used. The resulting gap information from the implementation of these two methodologies can be used to support quality management.
