Guidance on Competency-Based Education - Inside Higher Ed

The U.S. Department Education said Tuesday it is poised to release an extensive reference guide for institutions that are participating in an experiment on competency-based education. Since that project was begun last year, the department said it became clear that more guidance was needed -- for both colleges and accrediting agencies. The department has yet to release the document publicly, but plans to post it at this link: https://experimentalsites.ed.gov/exp/guidance.html “We believe that this guide will offer tremendous support for both experienced and new competency-based education providers as they implement this experiment,” Ted Mitchell, the under secretary of education, said in a written statement. https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2015/09/23/guidance-competency-based-education
