Aligning for Learning - Evaluating Connections: Making the Case for Competency-Based Education

Aligning for Learning: Evaluating Connections is the third presentation/video in a four-part series designed to help institutions use data to demonstrate the value of competency-based education (CBE) programs for their students and continuously improve program quality.

This webinar presents the importance of alignment in relation to validity of learning and evaluation of program effectiveness, and explores implications for ways to address misunderstandings in the larger field of higher education around high quality CBE programs through communication of internal alignment. It provides concrete examples of how alignment can be measured and how continuous quality improvement techniques can be applied to resolving apparent misalignment of learning activities, assessments, and internal and external standards.
