What does competency really mean anyway?
That’s the question that many universities, students and education experts have been asking.
How should colleges and universities measure their students' skills?
In the old model–go to class, do the homework, take a test, get a grade–student options were limited.
Questions like “how can I show off my skills beyond the classroom?”, “are there other ways to show competency outside of academics?” and “once I am done with this class, what will I have to show for it?” are all met with shrugs.
Colleges and universities are turning to digital badges– virtual “stamps of approval” that students can collect and share with future employers. Digital badges help students collect competencies and build a virtual highlight reel of their skills and accomplishments that can be easily presented as they look for jobs, create a co-curricular transcript and more.
