Competency-Based Learning System

Competency-based learning systems focus on front-end analysis to determine the desired knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors necessary for high level job performance. Such systems emphasize the use of assessments to determine the level of competence against desired outcomes, and focus learning and developmental efforts on helping the individual determine a learning path, identifying the learning experiences that help the individual attain the desired competencies. The instructional design methodology known as ADDIE (analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation), coupled with stakeholder input, learning experience review, and support systems make the system robust, efficient, and effective.
