Competency-based education (CBE) is becoming a buzzword in higher education, with more and more institutions and programs considering and adopting a competency-based approach.  However, tried and true methods for academic assessment may not be as easily transferrable as it may appear on the surface.  This session will focus on defining and measuring outcomes in competency-based education.  We will begin with a discussion of what CBE is and how to write meaningful competencies.  Next, we will address the design and development considerations of assessment for competency-based learning.  Finally, we will provide an overview of quality measures for competency-based assessment, including a discussion of psychometric issues.
