Competency-based education (CBE) measures students’ progress by focusing on the demonstration of skills as opposed to abstract knowledge. CBE was an integral component in the approach to education for the Island’s new community college, and 50 years later it is still an important element of the college’s curriculum development and delivery. How different is our approach to CBE now? This discussion will delve into the origins of CBE and how it has changed over the years.
