Competency Based Education: An Information Package.
This information package has been designed for teachers, administrators, school boards, and legislators who are interested in exploring the area of competency based education (CBE). The first section briefly reviews why there is interest in CBE, how it is currently defined, and some of the major issues it raises (including definition of what students should learn, testing of student competencies, CBE's impact on graduation requirements, and financing of CBE programs). An annotated bibliography of sources indexed in ERIC is included in Section 2, along with a description of the "CBE Sourcebook" developed for the Oregon Department of Education. (Author)
