As the focus of educational reform has been shifted onto college and career readiness, the interest in competency-based assessment has been revived (fr0m the 1970's discourse?).  While there is consensus that the high stake, content-based tests are not sufficient, competency-based assessment will be the next-wave of heated discussion and exploration.  While we do not readily admit that we teach to the test, the current accountability system will continue to push for standards-based assessment, but with the twisted or shifted focus.  My questions, then, are:

 

-  How do we define competency-based learning in the current educational context?

- How do we design and develop competency-based learning standards?

- How do we operationalize competency-based curricula?

- How do we engage in competency-based assessment (if not testing)?

- And, then, how do we engage in competency-based teaching to prepare our students for competency-based assessment?

 

That is, how we can engage students in competency-based learning (in and beyond classrooms on a daily basis). 

 

I am sure that you have been doing such in various forms with different digital content and tools.  Could you share your thoughts?  Many thanks for helping.
