Some Organizational Problems Encountered in Implementing Competency-Based Education.
Baird, Hugh; Belt, Dwayne
This document presents a listing of key problems, usually in the form of questions, encountered in implementing competency-based education, with solutions or ways of finding solutions suggested for some of the identified problems. The problems listed are as follows: a) deciding to decide--the best way is to let interested staff members begin an "experiment," with staff involvement gradually increasing; b) identifying competencies--there are various ways but one is not to adopt skills from another program without allowing your staff to corroborate them; c) instruction--to what extent can/should the system model be an ideal instruction system in a school? d) counseling--the teacher's role will shift to include counseling; d) assessment--the most difficult problem; e) record keeping; f) staff training--staff members can visit ongoing programs to observe, question and learn; g) content--computer efficiency should not blind the staff from ill-defined content; h) mechanization--can it lead to dehumanization?
