Moving to Competency Based Blends

Here are some examples of how a competency classroom differs from traditional:

  1. In traditional school settings, students can move through grade levels even if they only understand 60 percent of the material.

  2. Personalized learning, particularly competency education, flips the current model on

its head to put each student at the center of their education.

  1. Students, parents and educators have a shared understanding of the knowledge and skills each child is expected to learn.

  2. In a competency-based environment, each student has a set of clear learning targets and knows what they need to do to succeed.

  3. Students can make choices for how they demonstrate what they’ve learned.

  4. Competency education builds a school culture that empowers educators to build a culture and vision in the classroom while facilitating learning and preparing students for success.

  5. Through competency education, every student is challenged and every child succeeds
