Watchke, Gary A.
After a brief discussion of the issues prompting concern with competency-based education (CBE) and an explanation of what it is and why it is so popular, this document goes on to discuss action Wisconsin and other states have taken to implement CBE. Very brief accounts are given of the minimal competency-type programs implemented in Sparta, Milwaukee, Stevens Point, and Green Bay. A table lists minimal competency testing activity in the states, and brief accounts are given of minimal competency testing laws and regulations in Arizona, California, Florida, and Nebraska, and in Denver (Colorado) and Greensville County (Virginia).
