In Search of Efficacy: Defining the Elements of Quality in a Competency-Based Education System
This paper seeks to identify what makes up the structures of a competency-based system and launches an exploration of what we might ask or see in a competency-based district and school that would be identified as high quality. This paper explores three questions related to defining what high quality means in a competency-based district or school:
1. What are the common elements of the structure in competency-based schools?
2. What are the features one might expect to see in a high quality competency-based school?
3. What are the approaches that can be used to promote quality in a competency-based system?
