Competency-Based Education: Saving Students Time and Money - Carlos Rivers and Judith Sebesta, EDUCAUSE Review

Competency-based education offers the opportunity to accelerate learning and thus time-to-credential; alternative pricing structures such as all-you-can-take subscription models; and credit for prior learning. The Texas Affordable Baccalaureate Program, a competency-based BAAS in Organizational Leadership at Texas A&M University–Commerce, illustrates how these time and cost savings can benefit students. The TAMU-C Institute for Competency-Based Education will assist additional higher education institutions across Texas in developing their own TAB programs. http://er.educause.edu/articles/2016/12/competency-based-education-saving-students-time-and-money
