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.

February 15, 2013
“The Use of Individualized Learning Plans to Help Students to be College and Career Ready” is one of a series of Capitol Hill forums hosted by the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF).
