Call for Chapters: Handbook of Research on Competency-Based Education in University Settings
Competency-based education (CBE) is a system that permits students to move through a course or program based on their performance in a given topic area. The intent of the competency-based model is to reduce the cost and time required to obtain an academic credential. Students, especially adult learners who are returning to finish their post-secondary degree, frequently already have the knowledge and skills taught in many college courses.
