Examining the Basis for Competency-Based Education
Ainsworth, David
Journal of Higher Education, 48, 3, 321-32, May/Jun 77
The argument is advanced, based on practical experience, that the concept of competency attainment and the supporting behavioral methodology has a limited utility and may even have seriously debased educational standards. The prime contribution of competency-based education has been its focus on achievement as opposed to instruction. (Author/LBH)
