Competency-based education : beyond minimum competency testing by Ruth S Nickse( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book comprised of six chapters, multiple aspects of competency based education (cbe) are discussed contextually by various authors in terms of the current educational climate wherein the primary emphasis is upon learning outcomes rather than the process of learning itself. To illuminate the notion of competence, Chapter 1 presents: definitions of competence from the vantages of several disciplines; four basic principles underlying the development of competence; factors influencing competency; issues pertinent to program development and; a model of competence. Literature is reviewed in Chapter 2 in order to define cbe. The authors propose that cbe is essentially an instructional paradigm assuming different programmatic forms in different contexts. Appropriate instructional strategies are examined in Chapter 3. Guidelines herein suggested for planners also have implications for teachers. Thirteen cbe programs currently being implemented throughout the nation are presented in the following chapter. Concentrating on the evaluation issue of how competencies can be assessed, Chapter 5 discusses conditions affecting role based assessment. The final chapter notes that minimum competency testing constitutes a major component of secondary education and that few schools have realized the potential for development. Future implications are suggested. (Author/AEF)
Catalog of school reform models by Portland, or Northwest Regional Educational Lab.( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalog describes 44 school-reform models. It was prepared for the U.S. Department of Education in direct response to the Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration program. The catalog's purpose is to aid schools, school districts, and states as they investigate external models that can be incorporated into comprehensive school-reform programs. The catalog divides these models into two categories: entire-school models, which provide schools with a framework for change covering most or all aspects of school operations, and skill- and content-based models (reading programs, mathematics programs, and so forth), which can be used as building blocks for comprehensive reform. The document contains introductory information on 26 entire-school models and 18 skill- and content-based models. Although all the models are noteworthy, and will figure in comprehensive-reform efforts, the primary criterion for including a model was its strength of impact on student learning. Descriptions of the models were then developed by drawing on books, articles, reports, material prepared by the developers, written responses to information requests, and telephone interviews. Each description lists the origin or scope of the model, a general description, results, implementation plan, costs, student populations, special considerations, selected evaluations, sample sites, contact information, and highlights. Six appendices contain 11 references, components of comprehensive school reform programs, a continuum of evidence of effectiveness, a list of regional educational laboratories, and a list of comprehensive regional assistance centers.
