Administrators and policy makers are increasingly advocating for direct-assessment competency-based programs to increase access to higher education, decrease costs, and improve learning outcomes and completion rates. In this presentation, we will relay the experience of two institutions that implemented competency-based education—one independently and one through a third-party partnership.

OUTCOMES: Discuss the core requirements and considerations for designing competency-based, direct-assessment programs * Analyze different institutional approaches to developing a competency-based degree program * Advocate for competency-based, direct-assessment programs using quantitative and qualitative data from existing programs
