The Standardized Components for a Competency-Based Educational Record

September 17, 2019

Free webinar |  | 2-3 PM ET

Alternative educational movements are gaining traction. Competency-based education (CBE) is one of those movements. It has gained significant traction in higher education as a means to clearly identify the learning that is designed to take place within and around an academic program. CBE, in its pure form, does not “fit” into a traditional framework of terms, courses, grades and credits. Technologies and records standards do not exist to accommodate this growing educational practice, although emerging technologies are focusing the learning experiences into new record formats. Even when crosswalks to traditional frameworks are created, the rich evidence of learning is lost.

When designing CBE programs, what information should we be expected to capture, assess, record and report?  What should we commonly expect to be contained in such a record when we receive one from another institution or from a student? The Standardized Components for a Competency-Based Educational Record report and this webinar report presents a framework for the construction of such records and their standard contents.
