Postsecondary Competency-Based Education
Digital Promise is conducting research on competency-based education (CBE) in postsecondary settings. CBE is an instructional model that awards credit on the basis of student learning rather than an accumulation of courses or credit hours.
Digital Promise is working with Southern New Hampshire University to conduct research on the impact of a residential competency-based degree program designed for traditional-age undergraduate students.
Competency-based education (CBE) has become increasingly popular among colleges and universities wishing to make higher education more available and affordable to those seeking a postsecondary degree. The online delivery and lower costs associated with CBE enables individuals to complete an associate degree much faster and at a lower cost than they could in a traditional campus program.
