How Competency-Based Learning Actually Works

How Competency-Based Learning Actually Works | Education | Scoop.it
A guest post from Brent Capriotti, Curriculum Consultant for Pearson, looks at competency based learning and the idea of the 'mastery over minutes' concept.

 

CBL courses are personalized for students based on their incoming competency and areas of need. Students can focus on higher order thinking skills and higher value outcomes can be applied. They also have the freedom to accelerate their coursework and program completion. In many cases, curriculum is customizable to fit specific areas of student competency, versus “one size fits all” courses, directly altering the development and execution of the course.


Course and topic level outcome data, or data rolled up to higher levels such as program and institutional outcomes, gives institutions detailed information for institutional assessment and improvement efforts. The data is timely, relevant and actionable, at the course or program level.
