How does your organization define competency-based education?

Competency-based education (CBE) is a framework of learning and assessment that clearly articulates learning targets and competencies which recognizes students’ voice, choice, path, pace, and place in the demonstration of learning. While aligned to district standards, competencies must be demonstrated before advancement, but competencies are not necessarily linear. CBE requires a balanced assessment framework, with students receiving formative feedback and supports as necessary to ensure mastery.
