Positioning Competency-Based Education as an Equity Strategy: Theory, Practice, and Evidence to Push the Field

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Be able to describe how CBE can be a de-tracking/equity strategy, based on research, theory, and implementation stories from KnowledgeWorks partnerships.
  2. Leave with a greater understanding of the indicators that may be used to capture whether and how much a CBE intervention promoted equity in specific populations.
  3. Be able to apply targeted “look-fors” when assessing how well a school or system is implementing CBE as an equity strategy.
