This guide includes the ‘Competency-based Learning Survey for Students’ and additional instructions to support its implementation. The survey was designed to help schools and districts collect data directly from high school students. It looks at students’ beliefs about, exposure to, and understanding of key elements of competency-based learning. This survey was designed by the Regional Education Laboratory NorthEast and the Islands in response to requests from stakeholders in Northeastern states which have implemented competency-based requirements for graduation or allow school districts to implement some components of mastery-based learning.
Data collected on student’s views of the competency-based learning practices implemented at their schools could help policymakers and practitioners in the Northeast, and beyond, improve implementation. Findings could also be used to communicate more effectively with students in order to increase their understanding and buy-in for competency education.
