Competency Based Education Sourcebook. Second Edition.
Olson, Allan L.; Cutting, Pamela J., Ed.
This sourcebook describes specific sources of potential utility to those responsible for designing, installing, and operating competency-based education (CBE) programs. Four major types of resources are described--available materials from which selections may be made; products that provide guidelines for selecting from available materials; products that provide guidelines for developing materials; and references on the processes, problems, and potential of CBE. These resources are compiled into four content categories corresponding to major components of CBE--outcomes, measures, instruction, and instructional management and recordkeeping. For easy access, source descriptions are indexed by component (related to resource type and topic), by title, and by originator (developer, author, agency, or the like). (Author/IRT)
