Competency-based learning Higher education Definitions

Competency-based education combines an intentional and transparent approach to curricular design with an academic model in which the time it takes to demonstrate competencies varies and the expectations about learning are held constant.  Students acquire and demonstrate their knowledge and skills by engaging in learning exercises, activities and experiences that align with clearly defined programmatic outcomes. Students receive proactive guidance and support from faculty and staff.  Learners earn credentials by demonstrating mastery through multiple forms of assessment, often at a personalized pace.
