VALUE OF A DEGREE??? What is Competency-Based Education? Competency-based education is a flexible way for students to get credit for what they know, build on their knowledge and skills by learning more at their own pace, and earn high quality degrees, certificates, and other credentials that help them in their lives and careers. Students in these programs show what they know and how well they know it through multiple ways of evaluating learning. This is another choice for learning offered at many institutions, through a variety of programs, with full support to

help students when needed. CBE Value Proposition Area of Concern Student Learning Opportunity with CBE Transparent about and focused on learning outcomes Measure learning not seat time External stakeholders ensure competencies are meaningful to job market An intense focus on application and demonstration
