Experimental sites will examine ways to improve student outcomes
Eleven members of the Competency-Based Education Network (C-BEN) have been invited by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in a new round of experimental sites.
The experimental sites will open the door to higher education innovation aimed at increasing college access and providing more affordable and flexible paths for students seeking quality credentials.
These federally authorized experimental sites will include three strands: competency-based education models; models that include a mix of both competency-based education and traditional academic instruction, or so-called “hybrid” models, which also have approval to offer direct assessment of learning; and the assessment of prior learning for academic credit.
