Performance-based Education Programs

Performance-based programs allow students to earn credit in an innovative manner that recognizes the skills they already bring to the table. Course content is organized into blocks. Students work at their own pace with the support of a Faculty Facilitator and then complete assessments that measure course outcomes. Students learn the information required to master the material by utilizing learning objects identified in the block, by utilizing prior knowledge from their experience, or they can identify alternative learning objects that best serve their learning style. Students' assessments are evaluated according to the rubric by independent Faculty Outcomes Evaluators. Students may proceed as quickly or slowly as best suits them to complete the Block, up to a maximum of 2 quarters.

For students who have the right experience, this can be a great learning option.
