Getting Started with Evaluation: Making the Case for Competency Based Education

Getting Started with Evaluation is the first 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.

In the hour-long webinar based on these slides, participants learned how to build powerful and compelling research questions that can make a difference to stakeholders, and who to engage in campus evaluation team for the best possible results.

Attendees were also presented hear results from a new AIR issue brief, On the Path to Success: Early Evidence About the Efficacy of Postsecondary Competency-Based Education Programs, focused on gathering early evidence of CBE programs’ effectiveness, based on AIR’s work with six CBE programs across the country.
