What is competency education? Competency education brings students to both academic and personal sucess throughout their K-12 learning opportunities and experiences. As educators, we must design learning environments that allow students to engage deeply in learning. When students apply their learning of content and skills, only then can we assess and communicate their mastery. This new framework for competency education moves the traditional framework of curriculum, instruction, assessment and grading to a new framework competency design, performance assessment, learning pathways, and dynamic grading.
Competency education is my passion! I believe strongly that every learner have equal opportunities to learn and be successful in all aspects of life. With that believe, I also believe that traditional systems of teaching and learning must make way for preparing our graduates for success in their future--whether it be the in the work place or in higher education.
