Design Tool for Competency-Based Education

The traditional time-based, content-driven school experience is no longer a fit for our skills-based, quickly-evolving world. Competency-based education prioritizes personalized learning environments that support mastery of the skills students need to succeed college, career, and life.

The CBL Toolkit helps educators and schools make five essential shifts necessary for competency-based learning:

  • From content-driven to skills-driven
  • From time-based to performance-based
  • From lessons to experiences
  • From grading to feedback
  • From teacher-designed to co-designed

Based on GOA's years of research and work with students and educators, the CBL Toolkit offers a hands-on approach to mastering these shifts in a thoughtful, strategic way.

Launch CBL with GOA

GOA can help you use the toolkit to adopt competency-based learning (also known as mastery-based or proficiency-based learning). We're offering a limited number of professional learning partnerships on CBL in 2019-2020. These customized, ongoing programs bring expert GOA coaches to you. Using the toolkit as a foundation, we'll strategize with you to determine the right timeline, the right team, and the right programming to prepare your community for CBL.
