Moving to Mastery: A National Policy Forum on Competency-Based Education
March 1, 2013
“Using Competency Education to Improve Student Outcomes” is one of a series of Capitol Hill forums hosted by the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF). States and school districts around the country are beginning to challenge the time-based educational system that has been in place for decades by moving to a competency education approach, using flexibility in awarding credit. The reasons for moving away from the restrictions of a time-based system include: ensuring that all students succeed in building college and career readiness, consistent with the Common Core of world class knowledge and skills; taking advantage of the extraordinary technological advances in online learning for personalization, allowing students to learn at their own pace, any time and everywhere; and providing greater flexibility for students who might not otherwise graduate from high school. This forum, cosponsored by CompetencyWorks and the International Association for K-12 Online Learning, will showcase state and district efforts to implement and expand competency education.
