Chalk Talk: Competency-Based Education Benefits Students
Competency-based education is a personalized learning structure that focuses on children developing competencies in a specific area, then moving on to more advanced learning opportunities. Competency-based education does not rely on seat time as a measure of success, as the traditional school format does. Rather, if a child masters a subject in four weeks, they are free to move on to the next level in that subject. Supporters of competency-based education maintain that students are much more engaged in learning because they can work at their own pace. Students that need more time to show mastery can do so without the pressure of trying to keep up. At the same time, students that breeze through coursework are able to take on advanced learning opportunities much more quickly.
