    Creating a Culture of Relearning in Your CBE Classroom

    The biggest frustration I hear from teachers who are implementing competency-based education (CBE, also known as mastery-based education or learning) is that students' motivation drops considerably when they realize they can retake tests until they get a passing score. It seems, much to the chagrin of the teachers, some students no longer take assessments seriously. How do you ensure your transition to a competency-based classroom results in an emphasis on learning and re-learning rather than testing and retesting?

    A classroom paradigm shift has to take place. In a competency-based classroom where students only proceed upon mastery of content, the pattern 'learn, test, remediate' can no longer be the norm. Such a pattern is incredibly teacher-centric, as students often don't know what they don't know until the test. Additionally, the onus for remediation (and tracking the student down to retest) rests on the shoulders of the teacher.

So, if you ask leaders if they use data to drive instruction, the answer will be yes. If you ask if leaders embed small group learning into their districts, the answer will be yes. If you ask if leaders utilize digital tools to help students make educational learning gains, the answer will be yes.
