Fit for Purpose: Taking the Long View on Systems Change and Policy to Support Competency Education

This paper explores the issues state policy needs to address to support a transformation of K-12 education toward personalized, competency-based systems. It introduces four ‘threshold concepts’ that need to be considered for long-term success, including:

  • certifying learning,
  • assessment literacy,
  • pedagogical innovations based on learning sciences, and
  • meeting students where they are.

This publication was written to encourage policy leaders to examine and discuss existing flaws in the k-12 system and rethink what is possible to create a future in which personalized, mastery-based learning ensures all students succeed in college, career, and civic life.
