Strategy Lab Focuses on Competency-Based Education

Lumina Foundation's Strategy Labs project has released a series of resources focused on developing and implementing competency-based degree programs.

These programs can be an effective and potentially cheaper option for adults (and other students) to finish postsecondary degrees. The resources from the Strategy Labs are available here. They include briefs on state and federal financial aid policy and numerous state and institutional examples of competency-based programs.

The ACC Network has also collected a series of resources on competency-based education that are available here.

Lumina's Strategy Labs project is a resource for state policymakers aiming to increase degree and certificate attainment rates through a variety of approaches, focused on three key planks – improving student outcomes, aligning resources, and creating smarter pathways.
