Competency Based Assessment: An Update.
McNamara, James E.
This literature review outlines the assessment activities for competency based education (CBE) in five different disciplines in higher education, and discusses two approaches to assessment in programs leading to degrees in library science and media. Assessment efforts in CBE programs relating to library science and media are emphasized in order to tie the findings of this review to the research efforts of Daniel and Ely (1978), which are directed toward filling the assessment gap within CBE programs for school media personnel. Two matrices for guiding evaluation strategy and test construction are described which may help overcome problems facing CBE assessment. Innovators are warned that the impact of CBE programs will be diminished if they fail to deal with problems of CBE assessment. (Author/CMV)
