Abstract Title: Competency-Based Assessment: Goals and a Research Agenda
Abstract: Competency-Based Assessment goes by many different names, such as Outcomes based Grading, or Mastery Learning, but it is the idea that is enticing.  Rather than assign a grade based upon performance on individual tasks, the learner instead must produce evidence that she or he has mastered a set of skills or concepts.  The purpose of this roundtable is to discuss these skills and concepts as they relate to a PER-based agenda.  Fundamentally, does Competency-Based Assessment produce significant changes in student understanding and use of physics?
Abstract Type: Roundtable Discussion
