Report explores state of competency-based PSE in US

July 3, 2012

In a new report the US-based Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) describes a number of "showcase" models for competency-based degree programs. The report observes that there are a variety of sound approaches to competency-based education, which ensure the quality of a degree by concentrating on outcomes rather than on the amount of time students dedicate to coursework. CAEL also encourages the use of student assessments, which can be used to gauge students' prior learning. Inside Higher Ed | Report
