March Issue Brief: Competency- Based Learning

In Case You Missed It!It sounds simple—make sure students are learning. But as more schools and districts begin to develop competency-based pathways, questions have arisen about the best way to go about implementing these models. Complexities related to student grouping, curriculum design, scheduling, assessment, and grading abound. In this month’s issue brief, we explore various resources, research reports, and ideas related to successful implementation of competency-based learning, both in K-12 and higher education.

How can educators best implement competency-based learning? Does this approach work at all levels, from elementary school through graduate school? What do teachers need to know and be able to do to be successful with competency-based learning? Please respond to our call for commentary. We’d love to hear from you!
