Competency Based Counselor Education: Designing, Implementing, and Evaluating Criterion Referenced Instruction.
Froehle, Thomas C., Ed.
This monograph attempts a partial description of the development of the competency-based counselor education (CBCE) program and the procedures used to promote that development. The first section describes the distinguishing features of CBCE. It notes differences from more traditional approaches, such as that under CBCE the evaluation focus is learner outcome, while traditional approaches tend to focus upon procedures used to promote desired student outcomes. The second section is concerned with the competency-identification procedures in CBCE. It describes some of the more common strategies for generating competency statements, and identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The third section deals with the design of instructional support systems and the development and implementation of procedures for competency assessment and program evaluation. The fourth section critically weighs the Competency-Based Learning Model. (PFS)
