Proceedings of a Conference on "Educational Reform: The Role of Competency Based Education."
Hathaway, Walter, Ed.; Scofield, Sandra, Ed.
In mid-July of 1976, more than 70 education policy-makers, practitioners, and researchers representing more than 35 states gathered in Denver to exchange information about the implementation and impact of competency-based education (CBE) in the public schools. This proceedings is a record of those four days. During the conference these policy-makers, practitioners, and researchers who are on the cutting edge of the CBE movement reported on their progress and their problems, their data and their insights, their procedures and their motives. Time was carefully reserved for discussion and much of the information that both program and conference participants reported as being most useful to them resulted from these lively exchanges. This compilation of proceedings offers the full text of major addresses where the text was available. It abstracts the presentations by state representatives and researchers and it summarizes some of the final day's discussion. In addition, it gives information about CBE issues, trends, policies, programs, developments, and resources gathered during and after the conference. (Author/IRT)
