Attainment Rather Than Competence: A Legitimate Basis for the Certification of Learning Outcomes.
Peterson, Gary W.
The certification of learning outcomes required for degrees is identified as a crucial issue in outcome-oriented educational programs. Attainment is contrasted with competence as a basis on which to award college degrees in terms of their respective characteristics, assessment practices, and accountability for standards. A case is made that attainment, the educable enabler of competence, is preferred to competence itself as the basis on which to certify learning outcomes of educational programs. (Author/LBH)
