Competency-Based education (CBE) is a student centered learning platform that recognizes prior education or experience and allows students to leverage skills acquired outside of formal instruction. Instead of assigning letter grades based on performance and time spent in class, CBE allows students to move forward in their course work by demonstrating they have mastered the knowledge required for a particular area of study.
