Student Concerns and Competency-based Training: Difficulties and Coping Strategies in Vocational Courses.
James, Pauline
Australian and New Zealand Journal of Vocational Education Research, v8 n1 p1-30 2000

They appreciated the practical focus and continuous assessment of competency-based training. However, some aspects of it made it unsuitable for certain students, resulting in unproductive coping strategies. (SK)
