Making Mastery Work: A Close-Up View of Competency Education

Thursday, November 1, 2012

Abstract

“Making Mastery Work: A Close-Up View of Competency Education” highlights the work of ten schools participating in the Proficiency-Based Pathways Project (PBP). Led by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and developed to build broad understanding of the implementation of mastery-based approaches to teaching and learning, the PBP schools profiled in the report are located in rural, suburban, and inner-city regions in New England. You can find out more about the eleven schools at the Competency-based Pathways wiki including resources, links and tools.

The report’s authors, Nora Priest, Antonia Rudenstine and Ephraim Weisstein, examine several issues through the collected experiences of the participating schools including: the creation of a transparent mastery and assessment system, time flexibility, curriculum and instruction, leadership for competency education development, and the role of data and information technology in a competency-based education model.
