Competency Based Learning

Competency Based Learning (CBL) makes learning goals transparent. It is an approach to instruction that allows for multiple pathways to the same outcome. This differentiation increases student engagement and intrinsic motivation.  Students receive meaningful feedback and opportunities to relearn, revise, and reassess. Feedback should help students understand their strengths and areas in need of improvement. Grades should reflect what students know and are able to do. We believe that grades should be accurate, consistent, meaningful, and should support learning. Grades should reflect what students learn, not what students earn.
