Competency-based Education (CBE)

Many of today’s students need flexibility that a traditional classroom model doesn’t offer. CBE gives them more control of their own experience—and a better chance to succeed.

The definition

Success is about the knowledge gained, not the time spent. When a student masters a concept, they move on to the next. Until they master it, they receive specific guidance to help them.
