Abstract

Standards provide designers and developers of competency-based education courses and programs with a structure and framework that serve as a way to create quality learning environments that align objectives, instruction, and assessments. At the micro-level, standards facilitate direction of the structure, format, and content of a competency-based course that ensures a high-quality product. At the macro-level, standards help institutional administrators and faculty make good, informed decisions about program policies and procedures.
