Micro-Credentials for Competency-Based Learning. A Solution-Finding Report
Center on Innovations in Learning, Temple University
This Solution-Finding Report provides information, requested by Kerri White, Arkansas/Louisiana Technical Assistance Coordinator for the South Central Comprehensive Center, on behalf of Kevin Beaumont, Director of Professional Learning at the Arkansas Department of Education's Division of Educator Effectiveness. Beaumont's request was seeking resources for seven topics to be included in a micro-credential for competency-based learning: (1) developing measurable competencies; (2) designing competency-based lessons; (3) flexibility in time, pace, and place of learning; (4) formative assessment; (5) differentiating support; (6) transparent progress monitoring; and (7) demonstrating mastery. In these references, the terms 'competency-based learning' and 'competency-based education' are used interchangeably. This report offers some resources that deal with competency-based learning more generally, then offers resources for each of the seven topics. A few resources appear under more than one heading, where appropriate. There is also a list of documents dealing with Personal Competencies, which include the student's cognitive, metacognitive, motivational, and social-emotional competencies. Solution-Finding Reports are intended to provide a quick response to the request for information; they are not intended to be a definitive literature survey or synthesis of the topic.
