On the Path to Success: Early Evidence About the Efficacy of Postsecondary Competency-Based Education Programs

Aims to understand the main effects of competency-based education (CBE) programs. The goal was to understand, on average and across models, whether CBE programs appear to be working. The implementation of CBE varies across these institutions. Although each program fits a broad definition of CBE, all of the programs differed in key features, ranging from how they price courses to whether (and to what extent) students are allowed to accelerate or decelerate within the program.
